Some metrics:

Time at new job: this Friday will mark the completion of four (4) weeks at the new job. It’s going well, and that feels nice.

New wake-up time: 6am, which isn’t bad and I realize that that’s a reality for many people. I’m just not a morning person so it’s been a slightly more difficult adjustment. It took three full weeks for my sleep schedule to adapt.

Birthdays I’ve celebrated in the last few days: one (1). Mine. On Easter. It was very, very chill. I didn’t do much of anything, and that felt pretty good.

Time I have to “live” every day: 3 hours. That’s hard. That includes dinner, any exercise I want to get (which I haven’t gotten – I’ve been too f’ing exhausted), to do any chores/run errands (laundry, groceries, pharmacy, doctor’s visit, dry cleaning, shopping for socks, etc.) – and that’s about it. Bedtime. I’ll find balance. It’s just a matter of getting used to the new way and then working within that framework. It can be done.

This weekend, I had some time to take photos. This was nice. I went to the Great Falls of Paterson (a national park not 10 minutes from my home with some of the tallest waterfalls in the US – and I never knew!) and took some photos. Here’s a sampling:

There’s a great building with a great plaque:

S.U.M.

And there were rainbows!

It wasn’t a bad day. Nope.

I’ll be having more of those. Tomorrow is going to be almost 90 degrees. I am bringing my camera to work with me so I can pop out during lunch and take some slice-of-life photos of Brooklyn. Or other interesting things I find.
