My life got flipped, turned upside down…

A year ago today, I packed all of my belongings into my sister’s car and she drove me to my new home in New York City.

I think of those first few weeks when I got here and I can’t believe how different my life is now… even from just 6 months ago. Hell, I think of what my life was in Orange County and it’s almost unrecognizable. Things here are constantly evolving and there’s always something new around the corner… nothing is predictable and I love it.

To say it’s been a crazy year is a crazy understatement. From being jobless and lonely and sometimes regretting the decision to come here to joining a softball team and making new friends and finally taking advantage of living in the greatest city in the world… (oh, and did I mention I’ve lost about 30 pounds?! Thank you 4th floor walk-up)…I’m the best version of me right now… definitely the version I’ve wanted to be for a long time.

So here’s to another fantastic year in the big city… stay tuned for more adventures…
