Whirlwind: A New Chapter has Started

October 12th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Life has launched me into full throttle more than ever this fall (and also is the disclaimer that goes with my disperse blog posts!). On August 30, I was behind the wheel of a massive UHaul truck with all of my worldly belongings packed behind me as I made the leap from Boston to New York City. The company that I started with back in February is based out of Queens and they left it up to me to decide if I wanted to make the move. My lease was up in Boston and I figured I’d see what all the NYC hype is about for myself. Fast-forward six weeks later and my life feels like it is in permanent go-mode. Maybe this is more reflective of my current residence than I would have ever guessed. Time has played this game on me where I can’t quite distinguish what has happened on what day because they’ve all blurred together and I haven’t had a chance to digest it all. Beyond what’s in my agenda book, I can report that I’ve been to San Francisco for a fabulous 5 days of vacation, visited the Facebook headquarters, celebrated Oktoberfest in Central Park, flew to Dallas on business, and have visited with as many friends as possible while balancing working crazy hours, unpacking and getting to know my neighborhood. My roommate and I have yet to be in the apartment at the same time during a weekend and it took me 4 weeks to do laundry and 5 weeks to go grocery shopping…and I need to go again seeing that I ate  yogurt for dinner last night while writing this! Yes, life has been a speeding rollercoaster with the backdrop of one of the most intoxicating cities in the world. Without a doubt, a new chapter has officially started: Helen Takes on the Big Apple. Stay tuned for what adventures lay ahead!

    Thanks Bettina! I’ve already got some that I need to put onto paper, so-to-speak! :)
