What a whirlwind week. I literally packed up my car and moved a little under 500 miles to O’ Fallon, Illinois. It’s exhilarating. It’s terrifying. It’s a million different other emotions. But overall, it’s wonderful.
I adore that I have to go out shopping for a jacket because my winter coat is just too warm for this weather. I love the small town feel where the folks at the laundromat were excited to meet a new person and the people at Qdoba remembered that we were there three days in a row. I also am ecstatic that O’ Fallon is a skip and a hop away from St. Louis where there are tons of fun stuff to do.
Between saying goodbye to my friends to packing up everything in my car in a short amount of time to driving 8 hours to unpacking my car to doing coding samples for interviews to preparing for a cocktail welcome party to trying to settle in, it’s been a crazy, crazy week. I literally have no idea what I’ll be doing six months from now. It’s insane and unsettling, but it’s mostly lovely. I’m happy that I had the courage to shake things up in my life and do something life-changing.
What an adventure.
