Guys! It’s been too long since I’ve done a blog post, so I wanted to share a little life update today. In case you missed this post, I recently got a new job and I moved! It’s been an adjustment, to say the least. Here’s a life update:
There, I said it, moving sucks. I think I underestimated how much of a pain moving would be because I was starting with a blank slate this time around. I decided not to take any of the furniture from my old apartment because I really wanted to create a new, cozy space. That’s great and all, but it has taken me a while to pick out all of the right things and physically move them into my new apartment.
Living alone is hard.
I think anytime you go through a big life change like a move or a new job, it’s easier to have someone by your side. Maybe I’m having a “grass is always greener on the other side” moment, but this move has brought about some feelings of loneliness. Yes, I have my friends and family to help me out but at the end of the day, I’m doing this alone. While there are many great benefits to living alone, it’s not always fun.
The bright side.
With that said, my sister and her boyfriend have been a huge help during this process. They actually live in the same apartment building and it’s been SO nice to be able to walk down the hall and hang out with them. My sister’s boyfriend helped me move a lot of my things and has put some of my furniture together. Yesterday he restored my hot water because apparently the switch was turned off? I don’t know, man. Adulting is hard, but it sure is easier when you have support.
Also, I love Stamford! And I love where I live! So, things are good and things are hard. I don’t think you can ever eliminate problems, you just trade them for new ones and that’s OK.
If you don’t mind, I’ll be here trying to learn all of the lessons I need to learn and find the bright side in everything. Will you join me?
