(I posted this on Facebook but since there’s not a lot of Facebook-Tumblr overlap in my life, I thought I’d post it here to so you guys can hear about how St. Louis is going so far!)
Today is a hard day. I’ve taken to the St. Louis spring weather like a duck to water, but every time I go to the grocery store, I cry. I can’t find any local honey and all the brands are unfamiliar and there are no good tortillas or tortilla chips. Then I stand in line and watch as the person in front of me has the grocery bagger put each individual item in its own fucking plastic bag. I bought sushi at the grocery store today like I often do but it’s probably going to be gross.
The local Hulu ads are for some jesus-y Branson musical called Jonah. One of my neighbors left a note on my car telling me I parked in the wrong place. And my potential trapeze instructor won’t email me back to set up a time for a private lesson and I miss working out with my friends instead of alone in my apartment and my upstairs neighbor smokes in his house so I want a cigarette all day and all my stuff is still in stupid boxes.
I could find someone to go out for coffee with, but I only have two friends under the age of 60 here, and I’m not comfortable with either one of them seeing me cry.
