I have a few blogs so I wasn’t sure I was going to do this here, but It makes sense for me right now. This is the blog I’m updating at the moment so it seems fitting for this part of my life. Tomorrow I will be leaving Colorado and driving home. I’ve been here for 6 months and I’ve honestly never been happier. It’s been trying and a huge learning experience, but it’s all been worth it.
This year has been so full of new experiences and surprises. I have completed an internship, graduated college, managed a yarn store, taught classes, consigned items for sale, and driven across the country. I made new friends, lost 30lbs, and stretched the limits of everything I thought I was capable of. My motto starting out the year was “I Can and I Will”….and well, I did. Now I am going home to spend some time with my family and friends for the holidays.
I am going to miss Colorado. The cool weather is so nice (as opposed to Atlanta), and the people are amazing. But I have already promised to be back next year, and I’m being sent home with plenty of projects to keep me busy.
The main thing I’m worried about is the drive. I was worried about the drive out here. I get anxious, it’s what I do. I’m planning on stopping right outside of Indianapolis to see a friend I’ve known forever but never officially met. I know that will be a blast, but it’s still a little nerve-wracking.
Right now I’m doing laundry and packing. My friend has been so nice to let me stay here for 6 months, so I don’t want to leave him with a mess. Everytime I try to pack anything the tears come. I really do love it here, but I miss my family. I’ve missed a lot this year just because I’m here and not at home. I need to get back and touch base with them before I go crazy.
Well I guess that’s my brain dump. I know it’s personal, but it lets you see inside me a little. I’m sad, excited, scared, anxious, and happy all at the same time. Curse these emotions!
Home, I’ll see you before the week is out, and Colorado; I’ll see you next year.
