Things are going really well though. I start a new job (!!! finally!) next week, and even though it's a bit of a drive, it's in my favorite part of NoVA (or the only part I actually like, but I digress), where Chuckie and I had our first apartment together. There's tons of shops and cafes and bakeries all along the Potomac river, which will be good for me to be near again.
Our trip to Philly was excellent. We had such a good time walking all around the city, checking out the different neighborhoods (Chestnut Hill, I love you), and eating all the delicious things. We hung out with some amazing ladies (and their dudes) and it was definitely the best part of the whole trip. They alone make me think Philly should be my next move, but we'll see what happens.
Around these parts I've been doing my best to get out more. I've been seeing a lot of old friends I didn't think I'd ever have the chance to rekindle friendships with, and have been meeting a handful of fun new people which is always nice. I've been doing some new things for my spiritual health and I'm starting to feel a big difference which is always amazing. Moving here really could have swayed me to the dark side of depression and life hating and I'm really glad that I've been able to keep a positive outlook on things.
And now, I have brunch calling my name..
