I’ve been fairly absent from DW the past couple months due to being SUPER busy working at my summer job and preparing for my new job starting in two weeks (YIKES). I move out of state in two days for said new job and I’m getting very excited, but equally nervous. My boyfriend is also moving for his new job, which is rather close to where I will be (yay!). He and his dad were here last night to crash and are headed up to move him in today. It’s a 9-hour drive from here.
Today is my “say goodbye to friends” day. It’s going to be an emotional day to say the least. This includes my best friend in the world who is essentially the sister I never had. Though there are plenty of methods of communication, I’ve enjoyed being able to just decide on the fly to go see my friends and be able to be there within an hour. My best friend has said on multiple occasions how much she’s going to miss me despite the fact that I’ll be home for holidays and occasional weekends.
I also love home. LOVE it. For the first time in my entire life I’m not going to live in Minnesota anymore. The fact that I will be so far from my family saddens me despite the fact that I already know a bunch of people in North Dakota where I’m headed. And saying goodbye to my dog tomorrow is NOT going to be easy.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m beyond excited for the move. The fact that I have a job in my field and that I will be close to my boyfriend is awesome. I just wasn’t expecting to be feel this many different emotions all at once.
Yep. I’m right there with you. I just moved last week to Oklahoma for a job, away from a ton of great friends, and my boyfriend. It’s been a rough few weeks, being excited about finishing my phd and starting a new job, but sad about leaving all the people I love and the town that feels like home.
