Happy Halloween! A short story by yours truly for your reading pleasure.
Sometimes you just gotta suck it up and accept that things aren’t going to go according to plan.
HOUSEMATE: Where are you going?
JJ: No, camera. I’ve embraced Southern-ness, but not that much. Yet.
What’s cooking? Well, a lot, actually. A LOT. Plus, a recipe for Roast Beef Tacos with Almond Flour Tortillas!
The shock of having a House has certainly outweighed the culture shock of moving from New York to North Carolina, or at least, it has this week.
I find it hard to hold on. Some people can’t let go, but I can’t seem to hold on.
May 1st means that I have about 6 weeks left in New York City. Put that way, it doesn’t seem like nearly enough time. Enough time to wrap everything up on my end, enough time to pack, enough time to say goodbye to New York.
I spent the past couple of days in North Carolina looking at houses with Bear (and we’ve bought one, huzzah!). Down south, all the trees were already in bloom, but NYC is still a little behind the times in terms of spring. Nevertheless, the peach tree outside my fire escape is optimistic. Look! A bud is about to bloom!
In which I have some news: I am leaving New York City and am relocating to North Carolina. The short of it: Bear got Matched for his urology residency at Wake Forest. The long of it…
The buds on the peach tree (formerly The Tree of Indeterminate Stone Fruit) outside my fire escape are trying so hard to bloom. I feel ya, Peach Tree. I feel ya. It’s hard to remember spring is coming when it’s 35 degrees.
