Oh huh. I keep thinking I've been at new company only a couple weeks, but it's now actually been almost a month.

I've finally settled into the point where I can start *thinking* about other things, which was not the case before.

Especially the first couple weeks, I'd go to work, and well, work. And then I'd come home and read about work-related stuff -- either background in healthcare, or something about the specific technology stack we're using.

And now I feel a little like a swimmer surfacing from a deep dive and taking that first really deep breath of air. It's nice :)

Today I actually cooked dinner for myself (sort of). I've been interested in making the marinated eggs you find in ramen. I haven't had the ability to think about cooking in so long... and now I'm back. It's back. I boiled the eggs, made a marinade of soy sauce + rice vinegar + sugar, threw it in the refrigerator, and tomorrow I shall have something to eat. Hopefully delicious!

If it goes well, I may do a batch of it for breakfasts. Or I may not. WHO KNOWS.

On Monday I'm headed to New York for work! I'm excited :) I haven't been before. I'm staying in NY, but spending the bulk of my day at the office in Jersey. (Jersey City? New Jersey? I can't figure it out).

I don't have any plans, except to maybe get some New York pizza. Maybe also wander around. I think my chances of the first are lots more likely than my chances of the second.

Jersey City is a city, New Jersey is the state. You could be going to both!

Have a slice of pizza for me while you're there. I miss New Jersey pizza so fucking much omg.

I'm out of town right now in MA, but if you're going to be around NY/NJ, I'd be happy to show you around a bit. (Jersey City, as you've probably figured out, is in the state of NJ, across the river from NYC.) If you have the time and funds, you can get a great view of the city from the Top of the Rock observation deck at Rockefeller Center (50th st, between 5th & 6th ave). It's about the same price as the Empire State Building, but a shorter line and you get a view of ESB and Central Park, and the city looks a lot different from the 68th floor (Rock) than it does from the 125th (ESB).

NYC pizza? Jon Stewart has some suggestions.

Full clip, official site. From about 2:30 - 3:30.

Welcome to my neighborhood! :)
