2017 is almost over. WOAH, wait a second – where did the year go? It’s crazy that 2017 is almost over and I’m kind of happy to say goodbye to this year.
The one question people keep asking me is: why did you move?
One month ago, I moved from Portland to SLC. Can you believe it? I’m pretty proud of myself because on Day 2, I was ready to throw in the towel.
Part of me relished this new found idea of being alone – being on my own. I got to put things exactly where I wanted them, without needing permission. I could buy something for my apartment and not worry about if anyone else would like it. I ate exactly what I wanted. I binge-watched hours of The Office without complaint from anyone else. I found joy in sleeping sprawled across my bed.
Someone recently told me that they admire my ability to say I’m going to do something and then to actually do it. This made me laugh because that hasn’t always been perceived as a strength.
but it has also been the best.
