Welcome to the first day back at work, everyone.
Here in Pittsburgh, we decided to mark the occasion with snow, the first real cold weather of the season (Hey, Weather, I said you could get cold and snow until the beginning of January, not starting then!), and traffic wars. It seems like people have forgotten how to drive in a dusting of snow over the past few months. This, coupled with everyone heading back to work, meant that it was a treat getting into work this morning.
Once I got to work, I had to head over to Port Authority to shell out over $1000 for my annual transit pass (ugh). On my way, I passed a building I used to take pictures of all the time since its exterior was so reflective… it’s not so reflective anymore. In fact, it looks like it’s been bombed in a war zone, and it’s being torn down. My lackluster photography skills are sad.
Other than all of that, the first day back wasn’t so bad at all. Somehow I seem to have gotten some work done last week during the two days I worked, and that made my transition back to the daily grind much easier. All the new people at the gym didn’t make my life any better, but I have to commend them for getting out there and giving it a go… and now I know to go to one of my less-busy gyms for the next few weeks. And finally, I have leftover french fries with cheese and bacon to eat up for dinner, so really, this wasn’t too bad of a day at all. 🙂
