"The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The second best time is now."
I have been spending a lot of time at Sigurd's old home in the Valley after he came back to Norway for a while - the pictures are taken from there. I have an awfully bad habit in procrastinating things, but I'm better when I'm under his influence and when we are both working.
I was very optimistic when I thought about finishing my thesis last semester with the course going on and NY right outside my doorstep. Now that I'm back in the Valley I feel like this is the natural thing to prioritize, so I spend most of my time doing that and hopefully I will start a design project soon on the side. The good thing about being back is that two of my closest friends have moved back, and that makes me feel a lot less lonely here.
There are some days that I feel that I have gotten my fair share of the New York experience, and other days I feel like I long back to the buzzing life, opportunities and new friends. Whatever will happen from now on I am thankful for having had five wonderful months in the Big Apple. I am, probably for the first time in a while, not complaining about being back in the Valley at all.
