Hello Maryland

So, I made it to Maryland in one piece and nothing flew off my car and smashed into the car behind me. Overall, it was a good trip. I felt bad for my cat trapped in his carrier for so many hours; so, in solidarity I didn't eat meals in front of him and felt guilty for sneaking pretzel bits from time to time. My cat is still adjusting, but it's so nice to be in a place where I'm not trapped in one room (too bad Tri is for the meantime). Trust me, the last two years have been pretty confining.

Anyway... the drive was nice. New Jersey sucks the cash right out of your wallet though. I spent about $15 dollars on that state's toll roads. It was ridiculous. My favorite place to drive through was New York City. There's so much to look at there, and there's something romantic about that city, I think. I drove across the George Washington Bridge and that was pretty exciting. So, next step is to finish my thesis and find a job out here. I'm looking forward to getting things started again.

I'm glad you find NYC romantic ... I find it frustrating mostly.

Anyway, best of luck in Maryland! and getting Tri to adjust :)

Are you in NYC now? I'm sure I'd be singing a different tune if I lived there. Maybe it's better to say that it "looks" romantic? I find it a bit scary in reality. :)

You DROVE in NYC?! Wow, I want to shake your hand! I've only visited twice, and Brian drove once and I was scrunched into a ball the whoooole time, as if that would make the car smaller too. Even riding in taxi cabs made me grit my teeth. I haven't even driven in DC yet... maybe I'm just a scared-y driver. Hope you get settled quickly!
