I'm back in the city, staying at my friend Lesley's. She happens to live in the Village, only two blocks from Washington Square park. So at least my temporary lodgings are pretty frickin' awesome. I'm back to the grind this morning, a nice little freelance job. Coming back was bittersweet but I'm trying to stay positive and take everything as it comes. And of course, there are worse places to be than in my beloved New York City.
