Wednesday, January 9, 2008

Ok so you are moving to a new residence. Are you excited? Umm by looking at my boxes no!!!!! I have so much crap that I have to move, so little time to do it. I am too busy worrying about the future that I am not worried about right now. I have decided to purge every thing that I have now so that making the move in 11 months will be easier. I wish I could have packed up and left when my friends did. All I can think about is moving to Richmond. I wish I had the money saved and I wish that I could leave right now. But, I know all good things will come with time. I am not talking my self out of this move this time. My friends have just told me that there will be no problem with me living with them. I am so looking forward to being somewhere that I have never lived or that I don’t have family ties to. I want to experience something that is different from what I have always lived.

Back to my packing , I have a 500 square foot apt. I am getting rid of most of every thing that I will not need within the next year. I am moving into a house which has all of the elements that I have now. Dishes (gone), major appliances (gone), bed (gone), everything that I have held near and dear to me from my own apartment is gone!!!! I am sad because I have lived here for almost three years. My apartment has been my most permanent fixture that I have had in my adult life. I am so scared to live out of my zip code. That’s why my move to Plano will be a good step for me. I can’t wait!!!! After my step to north Plano, I know out of state wont be a piece of cake but lord almighty its going to happen! I have to do what I have said and follow through! All I can do is tell myself that this is really going to happen. I will be 27 years old, going to school full time and doing what I want!!! I have set a date that I will be moving Dec 26 or 27.

Regarding my family, gosh where do I start? I will miss all of them. But I have to keep in mind that there are millions of people that live 15,000 miles away from each other. I am very very close with my family members but they have to understand that what I do has nothing to do with them but everything to do with me. I will miss getting to know my niece and nephews but there are so many people that live far away from each other that I know that I can do it. I will have a great support system. I will also make full use of the internet.

All I have to wish for is that I will be able to make a smaller move now to make the bigger move in the future.

Keep thinking and dreamin!!!
