Ok…I’m not so delusional that I assume people care or even want to read my blog, but putting my thoughts down on “paper” makes me feel better and honestly I have the worst memory, so I write things so I can look back on them years from now and remember the good, the bad, and the ugly. Let’s just jump into it because I’m not the poetic fluffy type of writer. Last week was the week of changes. From the smallest areas of my life, the ios 7 update (which for the record is, driving me nuts) to moving from the town and community I’ve called home all my life. Only 2.5 hours from my home, I have relocated to beautiful San Diego, La Jolla/UTC to be exact. It has been where I’ve wanted to move to, however, it has not made it less stressful and/or sad (seriously, I miss my family. You can laugh all you want, but I miss my loud family and have cried over it a few times.) I love where I am, well what I’ve seen of where I am as I have only ventured out to a handful of places and know no one and have yet to dare myself to sit a bar alone and enjoy a well-deserved beer. But, the location is great, guys, I can literally walk to the mall in 5 minutes! It’s a good thing my credit at the moment is complete crap and I make no money, so I can’t get in much trouble. So far it’s just me in the apartment, I do have a roommate and will be bringing my dog over soon, but the last it has been just me in a new quiet place. I’ve learned two things:
1. I’m pretty entertaining…I mean, it has been up to just me to make myself laugh and keep myself busy and frankly, I’ve done a pretty good job.
2. I’m not as anti-social as I thought I was…I like having people around me. That’s pretty much the extent of that. I like having people around me to talk to or laugh at other people with. Whatevs.
Not only have I relocated my sweet little brown butt, I’ve also started a new job. Well more like I’ve really started using my degree and began my career! Sounds cooler and more professional that way…like “OMG she has a career! We knew she had it in her somewhere” Although I’ve only been at my job for a week now, I really like it and the people I work with. Everyone is so supportive and kind and smart…it’s a match made in heaven! That is until I really start doing the paperwork required of me…just wait for that post. Anyhow, I’m finally getting to use my education and that’s a huge deal for me because it was only 2 months ago that I decided that this might not be the path for me and began looking into other fields. I’m happy where I am and will be eternally grateful to all those who have helped me get here.
Oh, I was also kind of broken up with via text. That’s right…soak that in. Better or worse than the post-it Carrie Bradshaw got? I might be biased here, but I’m going to say worse for the following reason: after being neglected for about a week or two, I finally gave prince charming the easy way out by asking a question that was answered with a text almost literally saying he was no longer interested in hanging out with me. Not dating or being my boyfriend…hanging out. Damn Gina! Now also keep this in mind, although I did not move to my new place for said prince charming, it was nice knowing that I would have someone I considered myself to be close to, near me. Thankfully my sense of humor allows me to take the shituations that arise in life with some grace. Shit and grace in the same sentence…such a poet.
I mentioned the ios7 update…everyone thinks it’s a God sent gift to the world. I think it’s just something else to make life harder. Yeah sure…it’s a different new look and there are some cool things like…a male Siri (that loud mouthed bitch was working my last nerve), but I’m easy to please and didn’t really need the update.
The only consistent thing in life is change. However, the most important things in my life have not changed, they are the love and support my family and friends give to me unconditionally.
Here’s to a new season, chapter, and adventure in life.
