I think I was so focused on getting out here, that I never stopped for a second to think just how hard moving across the country (again) would be. That realization hit me full force about a whole 20 minutes after I got all of my stuff moved in to boyfriend’s apartment. It was kind of like “Whoa. I just moved away from everything I know and have built for 3 years.” The move to Austin was super hard on me, and I was crazy depressed for probably about a year after moving here. I had no idea how hard it was going to be to move to a new city and start over. I’m wishing/hoping that since I have a few friends in the city, also boyfriend, that I’ll be able to make things work. So long story short, I’ve been wallowing in self-pity for a week that everything is new and nothing is comfortable. Sup comfort zone.
My last day of work is on Friday and then I’ll officially be funemployed (ugh). I’m steadily putting a lot of time into finding a new job, but I can’t do that all the time because I will go crazy for real. I want to start meeting people, and building a new group of friends. Tumblr was amazing and connected me to so many amazing people in Austin (Thanks Kevin). Hopefully I will be able to find that same sense of community here in SF. Of course if you know any amazing tumblrs, let me know!
Tomorrow is a new day. Time to man-up, make this my town, not drink the pickle juice, and get bossed up.
