Do you ever not care? After a break up? I…am not really heartbroken anymore and don’t reallllly care and am truly happy to be out of the relationship… but why do I still stalk? Is this just how it goes? You slightly care forever until you are married and have a bunch of babies and are too busy to slightly care? I say this because I somehow JUST discovered that his new gf probably isn’t Jewish. Her last name is Walsh and she posts a bunch of Christmas photos. All I have to say is, don’t use “you’re not Jewish” in a breakup as an excuse. It’s bullshit and it’s mean.

Hotel Chelsea is the coolest. I was just reading a yoga teacher’s bio stating that she grew up there! I loovveeeddd Patti Smith’s book that takes place at the hotel. What an iconic hotel.
(warning.. this is kinda a self therapy post for myself)
I believe that when life gets too static and comfortable you need to challenge yourself and take risks. Well first, I do believe you should enjoy that comfort and stability… for months, years, however long you need it. But when life gets really static, it’s time to jump off the edge into the unknown.
Trust me… not everyone agrees with this philosophy including A LOT of my friends who have voiced their opinions. But everyone is different and you’ve gotta do what’s best for you! I moved to New York in June 2009 because my life was very static. Although I had the best living situation ever and wonderful friends, I didn’t like my job, I wanted to travel, I craved culture and new experiences. So I quit my job and moved to New York. Best decision I’ve ever made. These 4.5 years in New York have pretty much defined who I am. I’ve learned so much about myself and I feel like I’ve completely grown up in this city. I am not the same person I was at 23 when I moved. I took any job that would have me and pay me enough to survive (and eat delicious food) in this rather expensive city. I got lucky and have grown in my current position since I moved here. Then I had the “what am I doing with my life” realization/question pop up and stay in my head. It actually was when we moved offices to the most creative building in New York full of photographers, designers, fashion folk, event planners that I really started to question what I was doing. I studied communication and photography but somehow ended up in finance. Don’t get me wrong, my experience as office manager has be incredibly rewarding and I’ve learned SO much I can’t even write it all. But unfort it is not my passion.
So I’m moving on! And it’s terrifying. But exciting and thrilling. Part of me thinks it’s slightly crazy leaving a stable cushy job that pays a lot and lets me eat really good food and travel. I can do my job in my sleep and I’m rarely stressed out. Then another part of me is like.. dude you got to eat really good food and travel the last 4 years. You’ve DONE New York and enjoyed every second of it so maybe I don’t NEED all that. Then I thought about looking back on my life. Life is so precious. I know I don’t want to look back and think wow I was at that slightly miserable job for 10 years of my life and took no risks and didn’t follow a passion. I mean who knows if I’ll even be in NY for 10 years… and I probably could have stayed longer and actually saved more but ya know what?! There is no perfect time. Never. So I’m going to follow passions. Whatever they are. Take risks. Fail. Who knows. At least try.
It’s going to start with a 4 week yoga training program. I think it’ll guide me in some sort of direction…
