I am starting to experience some major anxiety about moving to North Carolina. Moving across the country is going to be expensive, making new friends is going to be hard, being a full-time student again is going to be stressful, and don’t even get me started on the crazy nightmares I’m already having about the six- and eight-legged creatures I’m going to find in my bathtub or the back of closet.
I’m also starting to get excited that I will get to pursue what I have been working towards for months. And to be honest, I’m kind of excited about moving to the south. Correction – I’m excited for a change. The south is SO different from the western United States, but it does have a few things going for it.
To mention one, I am looking forward to making this building my home for the next 2 years.
And I’m looking forward to living in a state that has real trees and real flowers, like these.
I’m excited to maybe live in a house with a porch, like this one:
Undoubtedly, there will be plenty of natural beauty to fill my soul… but I better take every opportunity in these next few months to fill my soul with beach sunsets, fish tacos, and craft beer, cause I have a feeling North Carolina won’t be able to come through with adequate substitutes. Ah well, just an excuse to enjoy tacos, the beach and beer as often as possible… as if I needed an excuse.
