One thing that I know about myself is that I don’t really handle change well. While I’m always excited about the possibility of change, and I realize that change is really the only constant, that still doesn’t give me the ability to handle it well.
I believe that I’m pretty resilient, and surprisingly, pretty flexible. So, changes in my work environment or within the context of relationships don’t bother me too much (unless they are EXTREME changes).
All that said, it’s still an adjustment to be in North Carolina. While I’m glad to be back, anytime that you move you have to make the necessary changes. I feel like the last two weeks have had me in a frenzy of getting everything set up and turned on, and now that all of those things are taken care of I’m just left to my own devices (also known as unpacking).
As much as I was ready to move back to North Carolina, I miss elements of my life in Florida. And although I’ve been out of Georgia for a year, I miss elements of my life there as well.
I think that what I miss most is having that core group of people there to support me. Twitter and Gchat can only provide so much encouragement. While I know there’s a difference between being alone and being lonely, I feel like I’m walking that line.
I’m sure that as I begin work and school, things will pick up and I’ll be too busy to think about things like this. But until then…it is what it is, I suppose.
