Settling Into Things

Eric, how are things in Albuquerque? Settling in alright?

Well, first of all, thanks so much for asking. It's been a little rough to be honest. I was only in town for a few days before being whisked off to camp out in the Gila Mountains during Easter weekend. Apparently, that's where I developed allergies for the first time in my life. Now, there's this lingering cough that followed me back home.

So, I it's been a little rough trying settle in?

Yeah, but thanks to the power of allergy shots and antibiotics, I think I'm starting to get things under control. Even more than that, I'm starting to build a pretty good routine for myself. I'm starting to get around more, re-exploring the city where I grew up.

Where have you been visiting?

As part of getting out, I've made finding a good, go-to cafe a pretty big priority. That shouldn't come as a big surprise. I found myself returning to Satellite Coffee in Nob Hill on multiple occasions, including today. Of course, I've made time for Flying Star Cafe as well. There's also Bocadillos, which, being small, local and close-to-home, makes it an easy go-to cafe. So between those three locations, I can always find somewhere to escape the house for a little while. And with eight people and a dog in the house, I find that's essential to maintaining my sanity.

Sanity? You realize you've crafted and answered all these questions yourself, right?

I think that's enough for today.
