It is super hot outside.
I was walking to the train with T and the wind was blowing, hot and dusty.
The sweat on my forehead acted as an adhesive and the dust and debris was sticking to my face, like a mask of garbage.
Then the sweat started to run and wash the garbage mask into my eyes.
The dusty sweat resulted in crusty eyeballs.
When I would blink it sounded like I was crushing corn flakes with my eyelids.
You know what?
I love my job.
How many people get to say that?
I mean, I like all the guys I work with, and I like getting to ride around the city, and I like getting to see all the art, both in the galleries and in the warehouse.
I just really enjoy my job almost 100% of the time.
It makes it hard to think about leaving the city though.
On one hand I have this job that means a lot to me, it is a big reason to want to stay in a place that results in the garbage mask I described earlier.
On the other hand, I have no family here, and I don't get to swim in Lake Michigan and walk in the woods and be by myself in the peace and quiet of Northern Wisconsin.
It is something that I feel very torn over.
But for now I am just thankful that I have the things I enjoy here in New York, and I try to find new things ass often as possible.
It helps when I get homesick, or when I think about the future too much.
I hope all is well, I will talk to you soon.
