Moving Day. Just bittersweet words to me. In my (nearly) twenty years of life I have moved fourteen times. Not just down the block, but across the Atlantic, through the Mediterranean, and across the United States. It is always hard to pick up and move, start a new job, attend a new school, get acquainted with a new lifestyle, but at the same time it is so exciting to explore and learn about different cultures.
Well earlier this month I moved again, but this time I don't have to learn a new culture, I don't have to study a map, I don't have to go to a new school or start all over again...I simply got a new place in Boston. Many of you won't understand why this is such a big deal to me, it seems like such a normal and simple thing for most people. But every time I've seen my stuff in boxes it means having to make a new life for myself. Today I moved home. Boston is home. I've never had a home before. I've had places I've lived from time to time but not a stable, grounded place with roots. When people ask where I'm from I never know what to tell them.
Do you want to know where I live currently? Where I lived the longest? Where I was born? Or where I just moved from? Because each one would be a different answer.
Hey, but no one said life is simple.
I can tell you something simple though, I LOVE my new place.
Things are happening! And life is just so exciting. I recently got a new job, I have new shoots lined up (I can actually get paid for doing the thing I love most? Cray), school is in session, reunited with old friends and making new ones, my boyfriend is kicking ass and on his way to being an amazing dentist--things are just working out and I feel so blessed.
Now it's just about balancing it all.
Now I just sit here, with my hair in this morning's messy bun with sweet potato hash on the stove top making lists, filling out paperwork, and reflecting on what a great past week its been.
I'm going to be working on a cool project over the course of the next year, I'm so excited to bring it to light! To be seen soon!
