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.

So 2011 hit me like a mack truck and it’s only the second week. First, my dearest, most darling Psychic Roommate has told me she is moving out. I am sad to be losing a good friend and roommate, but the stress of finding someone by February 1st has been driving me insane. Do you [...]

So I tried to get a few rolls of film developed, but unfortunately none of the shots came out. I think something’s up with the Canon (who still has no name, poor thing) so I need to have her checked out. :( Nothing much going down for this Photo Friday. Haven’t had much opportunity to [...]
