I will soon be closing one chapter to open a new one. Maybe I am closing a whole book and starting a new one… who knows?
When I made my move from my hometown of 18 years, Warrington, PA to start a new journey at Marshall University in Huntington, WV, I knew it was a big step. Going to a new place where I knew absolutely no one. I didn’t have any family to back me up, but I knew I needed to find myself, get away from the everyday mundane tasks. Sure, looking back Huntington, West Virginia probably wasn’t the place for it. However, I did come off with a lot of life lessons and important people in my life. Now in just a week I plan to make that change again. I will be reunited with my family and ship off to Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina.
I know this is going to be extremely hard for me, as it is for my boyfriend, making the move with me. He is leaving his family behind and I am leaving life-long friends that I made at work behind. Most of the people I met in the short time of a year at my latest job, have become like family to me, it was one of the hardest things I had to do when I gave my two-weeks notice. I felt like I was letting everybody down and disappointing people. I am giving up a once and a life time job with amazing people to be with family and in a more secure environment. I want more than anything to pursue something in Psychology and just want to be given the chance to prove myself, like I have done with everyone here. Sometimes hard decisions have to be made that will eventually make me happier in the long run. I never pictured myself in Huntington, West Virginia for the rest of my life, I don’t want to say that I am too good for it, but I think I can conquer more and I want to give myself that opportunity. I am young, I want to be able to make mistakes and learn from them before they are too late. I don’t have a mortgage or kids I don’t have strict things that are tying me down here!
I am so optimistic about my time in the big NC. I feel like it is a fresh start, to make better decisions and find something to do with the rest of my life that will make me happy and fulfilled. I want to find my passion in life, the job and the life that makes me want to wake up everyday and start. I want to make my roots. I want to get engaged and marry the love of my life and buy a beautiful house. I want to shine. I feel like this is my time to start over and clear my slate. I want to make friends that I will keep forever, ones that will stand by me at my wedding, friends of a lifetime. I want to learn not to waste my time and energy into relationships that leave you broken. I want to further my education and get my Master’s Degree to better myself and… well my bank account I have a lot of high hopes for you North Carolina, I hope you’re ready for me!
Here’s to the years to come and to opportunities that await me. I can’t wait to get started and see where this road leads me! Wish me luck!
Until next time, blogland.
