The Birds & The Bees
No matter how much you think you are in control, life will always find a way to surprise you. I spent the past decade creating a life for myself in New York City. I lived in several questionable apartments until finding a halfway decent one in Park Slope during that time. I landed a stable full-time job in Manhattan as a photography office manager securing a salary, health benefits, a retirement plan in an office surrounded by creatives. I embodied the hustle of city life where there is never enough time, and anxiety and stress are the norms. Everything seemed okay. My head was finally above water, and I entered the numb, comfortable daily routine many New Yorkers inhabit.
