A couple of pretty important life/work changes to note:
First, after three blissful months of pricey pints, long walks and embarrassingly frequent take-out dinners (hey, in my defense: I was there in part to experience the food) my time in NYC has come to an end. I packed up my room last weekend, and arrived back in happenin’ Verona, Ontario early this week — I’ll stay here long enough to prep for some serious summer travel before taking off again in early May. I was very sad to leave, and I definitely plan on getting back to the city for another extended stay when I can.
Second, I have some exciting work news! I’ve been writing for World Hum for about a year and a half, and starting in May I’ll also be taking on some editorial responsibilities. It’s a temporary set-up — I’m helping to fill in for senior editor Valerie Conners for a few months while she works her magic at the Travel Channel — but I’m thrilled to be increasing my involvement with the site (my World Hum fangirldom goes back to my grad school days) and I think I’ll learn a lot, too.
More news coming soon on my travel plans for the next few months — so far, all I know for sure is that I have a plane ticket to Barbados with my name on it. Beyond that trip, I’m hoping to finally make it up north, to the Yukon!
