Forget about me?
When I had said I wouldn’t be blogging for the next week, the next week suddenly became the rest of the month, and life got in the way – not only of my blogging, but my humor in general.
Personally, I blame Comcast.
Anyhow, I can report that I have now officially completed my move up to the big apple, and did not expect in leaving Philly to feel much. Don’t get me wrong – I absolutely love Philly, and anyone who knows me, knows that – but I guess life has been so insanely busy in the past couple of months that I did not think I’d still have that emotional connection to the city I once had.
However, I quickly discovered the reality was that it wasn’t just the city, but the connection to the life I had built while I was there.
One that was sad for me to leave.
It’s funny, in hindsight, because Philly was originally supposed to be a temporary situation. But what became a month or two of commuting from West Chester after I graduated college quickly turned into a year in Manayunk with two roommates, to another year downtown, living on my own at 16th and Spruce.
And I absolutely loved every minute of it.
So, here’s to you Philly.
And here’s to those that impacted my life while I was there.
Without all of you, what was an absolutely wonderful 2 years would have been a mundane month or so. Words cannot describe what all of you have meant to me, and always will, and I thank you so much for making Philly not only worth sticking around for, but a place I truly felt home within.
I’ll miss you, guys. Wholeheartedly.
I love you even more.
