Visual vibes to make up for my quiet blogging week last week. I’m not going to lie it was a crazy one filled with all of the emotions, high & low with everything in between. I just needed to take a step back.

I mentioned in my previous posts how I was dealing with some visa issues, which unfortunately many of my Irish friends here in NYC have also had to deal with and I guess being swallowed by a mountain of uncertainty and anxious feelings are just part and parcel of trying to live in the city of dreams. I just had to pay my dues I guess, but damn that was a really stressful three and a half months. It’s tiring being constantly on edge for such a long period of time but I’m used to working hard for what I want and it was just a matter of paying my dues in stress levels! Nothings ever fallen into my lap, but I’m a firm believer in ‘nothing worth having comes easy’ and it makes you appreciate NYC all the more. Friday I woke up to good news and just had the most blissful of days. I was working solo that day (with a late start after a Central Park workout with my PT), photographing some exhibitions in Chelsea for work. It felt like the farthest thing from work, the sun was shining with the now summer-like twenty degrees and I just trotted along to galleries for the rest of the day. There may have been a taco stop en route home… It felt like the first day that I really enjoyed New York without a care in the world and I think you can tell in this photo diary. Just being able to stop and show my appreciation for this city in a photograph.
