It's been five months now since my company closed and I was no longer employed. I've been on the job hunt since then, but I can only take so many hours a day networking and applying for jobs. The remaining hours of the week I try to fill with fun things to distract me from the fact that I have no job. This including training for a half marathon, finishing partially complete projects and wandering the streets of New York.
My favorite place to wander is Soho and the best time to walk around is a weekday afternoon. It's so much quieter than on the weekend and the salespeople in the stores are so much more helpful! I've discovered so many fun shops that make me long for a new job, so I can buy pretty things.
Since I was out for the whole day, I wore my favorite flats and carried along a big tote.
It's also much easier on a weekday to stand in the middle of the street and take pictures.
