So, this is my life.

And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.

NEIGHBORhood


in the course of only a few hours yesterday, i randomly ran into so many friends and acquaintances. fawzy in old city, nick in the park,
larry from the alumni association, that blonde girl from law review walking her dog, eric & adam and emily and ami separately in the hood... i felt community.

and isn't that just one more thing that's wonderful about living in philadelphia*? in addition to the city's countless BYOBs, and its crowded parks, and it's 200-year-old cobblestone streets. it's the sense of community. on any given day, on any given street, you'll run into someone -- or seven someones -- you know. it's enough to make even the most solitary bar studier feel less alone.




*limited to center city philadelphia. all rights and reservations apply. while supplies last. no c.o.d.

hi neighbor...
i loved this.
the longer you live in this city and the more people you know, the more unexpectedly you run into people.

i can't wait until uarts starts back up in the fall.

i'm so happy i moved back "home" :)
never move to where i used to live.
