I spent the long weekend completely cut off from the world wide web. I checked out a live venue dive bar in my neighborhood (Great Scott, which I’m in lust with), spent an evening out with coworkers (two bachelorette parties at once, this involved bar hopping for five hours Downtown), caught up on my sleep, and watched the Boston Marathon (for the first time) in Brighton! I’m diving in to getting to know my a-little-bit-too-far-from-anything neighborhood and setting my roots down here in Boston even deeper as I go.
However, I realize that as I get crazy!busy with the whole ‘new life’ thing, I may not be the best at keeping up with the rest of the world. I’ve been missing my friends and family (shout out to the PPM in DC!) a ton lately, an ache in the pit of my stomach sort of missing, and so I thought I’d take a moment to reconnect.
I’ve spent the morning catching up with friends online, going through journals and blogs and Twitter feeds and tumblrs. I’m tackling email and text messages next. Maybe tonight. I’m catching up on my latest partnered writing projects, trying to get inspired by checking out new followers on Twitter, new books to keep me busy on the train ride in the gray morning.
