I am feeling so lonely right now. It’s very cliche, really. In a city of 8.6 million, I am overwhelmed with this feeling of isolation.  I went to Orangetheory this morning. I sat in a cafe and ate brunch. I ran some errands and indulged myself at Target. I came home and I sat.  

I know I could go to a show tonight. Or a restaurant or shopping or a stroll through a new neighborhood.  I could do a long list of things, but I have spent so much time alone already the thought of those things alone isn’t that appealing. 

This moment I find myself in right now is the exact moment I was hesitant to move to New York City because. Loneliness is horrible, especially when from your bedroom you can hear groups of friends chatting about life. 

Making friends as an adult is hard. I’ve heard people are welcoming and open, as it’s a transient city after all, but work certainly has not shown me this, and right now I can’t fathom how people meet each other. 

I’m six weeks into this new adventure of mine and regretting it heavily as I’m missing home so much right now.
