By July I had gotten into the swing of things. I was somehow getting up at 6 for work everyday and feeling like I had turned over a new leaf. I had been aching for an adventure after social media-stalking numerous friends of mine on their post-grad cross country road trips. In typical Erin fashion, I decided it was time for an adventure of my own. When I realized I had a five-day weekend off of work for the Fourth of July, I spontaneously booked a trip to visit my friend Alex in Michigan after a day in Chicago. It was just what I needed! I also got to visit one of my college roommates who lives on Cape Cod. She’s moving to San Fran before the end of the summer so I was so happy we got to spend some time together, no matter how brief.
At the end of the month, Tommy and I signed the lease to our first apartment! I felt like a weight had been lifted and excitedly packed up to move.
