So You're Leaving Home

Macrae created this flowchart after relocating to New York City and living there for three years. Beginning with a brief layover in Grad School/Guatemala, she charts her journey within the city focusing mainly on her professional life, love interests, and her search for the perfect apartment. She writes, "I found myself still struggling to explain to friends and family back home the why and hows of everything that's happened. So much so that I'd lost track of how everything then turned into everything now."
