I moved to my current city last year because I was starting a position at a new company. The last employer had to shut down because of COVID, leaving all of us employees out looking for work amid a tumultuous time. Thankfully I landed on my feet much faster than I could have hoped to, but it meant moving to accommodate a new job at a new company. I went from a medium sized city to what I would call a small metropolis. It took serious adjustment time for me to like living in such a packed area for the first time. I wasn’t a country boy like some of my cousins who lived upstate, but I was used to cities and towns with fewer than 20,000 people, maybe 30,000 at most. The one thing that I can’t complain about in my new city is the access to all of the stores, shops, restaurants, and services within a five mile radius from my apartment. For instance, I discovered a CBD store on my walk home from a local restaurant yesterday. There was a CBD store in my old city, but their stock and supply of hemp and CBD products was poor. This new CBD store had everything from CBD oil to hemp flower products like pre-rolled joints and flower bud jars. I bought hemp flower products so I can throw them in my cannabis vaporizer. This keeps me calm, but focused throughout my workday. Thankfully I’m able to use my portable vaporizer in my car during my lunch breaks.
