I’ve been On The Road almost all year now, and its become my new normal! I’m home in NYC for a little while, and a few things are extremely different….
7. You open your weather app to check how hott it is in NYC and it looks like this….#whereami
6. You put your status on Tinder as “up for drinks tonight” and you get 6 responses right away! COOL! oh, except 2 are from Edinburgh, one from Dublin, one from God knows where, and 2 from London. Looks like you’re out of luck.
5. You travel so much for work, you’re not quite sure where you are. When I was in Bermuda last week, someone showed me where we were on a map and I about fell over. Bermuda is geographically not even a little bit close to where I assumed it was. Also it’s British. But they accept USD as their official currency. $1=$1. They sure won’t take your leftover British pounds. WHO KNEW. Nobody, because it doesn’t make sense.
4. You cross the road looking both ways because you aren’t quite sure which way cars are driving…better safe than sorry, especially in NYC, but I’m starting to look like a bobble head doll version of myself. The fact that I’ve never been hit by a car whilst crossing the road literally astonishes me.
3. You are the luckiest because you always have a place to stay in NYC, but your best friends refer to you as as the gypsy lady i.e “Omg guys, make up the couch! Crazy Aunt Savannah is coming to town, wonder what shenanigans she’s been up to now!”
2. You have used a room key from the last hotel you stayed in to try to open your current hotel room door. Better yet, when it didn’t work, you went and complained to the front desk, handed it to them for them to fix it……………and then promptly felt like a moron.
1. You calculated that you haven’t been “home” in almost 8 months….so when your company offered you vacation pay to go home from your contract a month earlier than expected, you jumped…summer in NYC! I’ve found that home is a state of mind, rather than a physical place.
