When your mood matches the weather

I have been reading too much EscapeBrooklyn today. Between the racheting stress at work, the ugly weather, an impending trip down south where there will be clean air and hot sunshine, and massive frustration with my too-small apartment and horrible, horrible kitchen, I do not heart NYC right now.

I wanted to live in New York since I was about five years old. I had a poster of the skyline on my wall for years. Every once in a while, my breath catches when I realize that I did it, but right now, at this moment, I would trade it all in for the chance to drive down the road listening to the radio and walk into a living space with wall-to-wall carpeting. Somewhere with a Walmart where I could buy everything in one trip and where someone might smile and say hello instead of run me out of their way.

Am I losing my love affair with the city? And where could I possibly go next?

  1. You may just be having a bad day. But I feel you, sometimes I get frustrated living here, but for right now the benefits always end up winning.
