I saw the wife of a person that I used to have Shabbos meals at - well, only a couple of times. She suggested I e-mail my resume to her husband, and they would try to help me find work. Very kind of them.
The trip was very good for me, I think, because it made me realize that I really had missed New York. I always feel at home when I'm there, and as of November 10th it will be back to being my home when I move back into the apartment space I occupied only a couple of months ago.
Now I just have to find a job. And at some point, do that whole marriage / children thing. Right?
