It’s the midway point in my New York year-long vacation that might end up being more than a year. Part of the reason for this move was to live life on my own. To find myself without feeling obligated to take care of or cater to anyone else. I think I’m doing pretty well. And I’m not being as selfish as that sentence makes it sound. I decided it’s time for a report card. Let’s compare to my May 2 check-in.

I’m a journalist, content strategist, doting auntie, amateur bobsledder, fitness enthusiast, and wannabe health nut (who loves chocolate and pizza too much to fully commit). I don't want you to think my life is perfect. It's not.
