It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but so many things have happened! Between finishing up at my last job, packing up my stuff, arranging my car and things to be moved, having goodbye lunches and dinners with friends and family, going to the beach every chance I could get, then flying to Binghamton, unpacking, cleaning, saying hello to my kitties, reuniting with my friends in NY, getting settled in my new job, and the thing that has been a constant with me this whole time, school, I just need to
I’m really happy though. I’ve been on a go-go-go type of pace but I’m all unpacked, excessive things have been donated, I’ve been at my new job for 3 weeks now and it’s already picking up, AND I got to do my first adventure last weekend. Of course, I suffered for it because I got really behind in school, but the weather was just so nice!
To be fair, I did try to compromise and do some work while sitting on my balcony. I figured, hey, no reason I can’t enjoy the sunshine while working, right?
I did this for a little over an hour, basically enough so I didn’t feel too guilty, but I couldn’t pass the good weather up. This isn’t California so I can’t always say that about the weather, so off I went!
Apparently, Watkins Glen was a bit confused about it being spring already, because there was still some snow.
It wasn’t cold at all though, and the water levels seemed a bit higher than last time.
I was kinda supposed to meet up with a group of friends here, but I was glad the timing didn’t work out because I got a chance to have some much needed alone time. Besides, I can keep myself pretty entertained.
Unfortunately, only a short part of the trail was open and the other part won’t be open until closer to the end of May. Oops, now I know. It makes sense though because during winter, the stone steps get iced over so I assume there is a lot of maintenance needed to ensure the safety of the people walking on the trails.
No matter, I was getting hungry for dinner at that point anyway, so I decided to go to Stone Cat Cafe again, which is this really amazing restaurant with organic, fresh food, and a fairly new deck to enjoy the view. The last time I went it started raining so I didn’t get to enjoy sitting on the deck, but not this time!
The food was phenomenal, just like I remembered.
Alright, enough reminiscing. I must now put my head back in the water and start swimming. It’s finals week…I can do this!
