Beginning Again

I’ve recently made the decision to move out of state to follow possible career paths, and hopefully to find love where I believe to see it. It’s a big decision, and the second time I’ve made it. I met my current love interest not long ago. We happened to participate in the same online communities at the time, and decided to start talking. Things started progressing from there, changing from interest, to infatuation, to being head-over-heels in love.

Before you call me crazy and impulsive, I’m going to tell you that I’m crazy and impulsive. In a matter of weeks, I decided to put in my two weeks at a job I’d had for years, pack up everything, and uproot my entire life. I now live somewhere with no friends, no job, no money, and not a care in the world. I recently applied for some jobs in my desired field, but we’ll see where that gets me. I’m currently living with my love interest. We have two cats, and I’m rambling.

Besides the crazy events that have led up to today, I’ve had it pretty good. I may be friendless right now, but I’m hoping to meet some new people tomorrow evening (Halloween night downtown shall be fun) and maybe making some new friends. People here seem to be a lot kinder and more sincere than where I come from. There’s a certain way about people here that seems more hospitable than I’ve seen anywhere else.

I know I haven’t really made much mention of her yet, but the girl I met is absolutely wonderful. She’s funny, smart, beautiful, and loving. She understands me and accepts me for who I am. She knows I’m a broken soul, and she can relate. We enjoy many of the same things, and the things we can’t agree on, we have fun debating. Our interests compliment each other’s. Our differences add body and intrigue to our relationship. I’ve honestly not been happier in years. I could make this whole post solely about her, but I’m beginning to get tired. Perhaps next time I’ll fill you in. Or perhaps not. One way or the other, I saw a need for a fresh start and I made it happen. And I couldn’t be happier with my decision.
