I had a lot on my mind tonight and I couldn't sleep, so I drove out to Seattle at 3 AM to do some nighttime photography and to clear my mind.
I wound up going to Kerry Park and chilling there, absorbing the scene and thinking about life. Thinking about how five years ago, I was just some kid in high school taking CS classes, learning how to code, and working hard for a better life.
And about how now I'm on the other side of the country, working a job I could only dream of back then and living life as an "adult". About how I still have so much more to learn. Crazy how much can change in five years.
At heart, I'll always be a city kid from NYC. Going out and alone in Seattle in the middle of the night and appreciating the life around me, I really felt in my zone for the first time in the West Coast tonight.
