I leave this morning for my new home, NYC. I've got a million things to do, but I'm focused. I can't help but feel excited, nervous, proud, happy, surprised, and exhausted all at the same time. I'm looking forward to finally being at a stopping point. I've been on the road for over a month now, without a home, and I just can't wait to find an apartment and finally be able to say "This is my new home."
It's a 10 hour drive to New York. My boss is letting me stay at his house for the night, and on Monday I have an appointment to look at an apartment near my office. It's not actually located in the city, so this may be a good place for me to transition to New York life. It's a fully furnished apartment, which would also relieve some of the anxiety of scrambling to buy furniture to fill an empty apartment.
I'll post my first impressions of the city and my new office in the very near future. Wish me luck on my new journey.
