New Adventures

I'm moving today.

To say that I am terrified would be a GIANT understatement. 

In a few hours, I'll be making the long drive to Vegas. Only this time, it's not a trip and I won't be coming home in a few days. I'll be staying there as my parents drive away.

This has happened to me twice before. I was 18. And I don't remember being nearly this scared. Maybe that's because the first time, I didn't realize how hard it was to be an adult. Maybe I wasn't aware that I would be home again in three months. 

The second time was six months later, where I decided to try this again. Once more, three months later, I came home. 

There are a few things that scare me more than those times. 

1. I am scared that I will fail again.

2. It's nearly 5 hours farther away from home than it was the first two times.

3. It's a much bigger city where I don't know anyone but my sister.

I'm also really excited, but my fear of failing is making me a nervous wreck right now. 

To help me feel better, let's list some good things!

1. Being so close to Alyson!

2. Warmth!

3. More people and more things to do!

4. Being nearer to Kevin. 

I am definitely excited. It is however, very hard to be sitting in my old room on the computer that has not yet been packed when the rest of the room is completely empty but for the furniture that belongs to my parents. It's like a ghost room.

And it looks so much bigger and yet, smaller at the same time. It's strange. 

I'll be on my way to new adventures in a few hours. Wish me luck!

Whaaaat?! That's awesome! I wish I had the guts to do that. I've always wanted to up and move HOURS away where I don't really know anyone and just start over. Just for the hell of it. I kinda envy you. I think you'll do great. :)

By the way, I'm gonna grab your button, and put it on my newly designed blog, k? :))

Good luck with your new adventure!!! Now is the time to get out there and try new things. It is scary but oh so worth it!! My first move away from home was Hawaii. Don't be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone and get involved with the single adults asap. Have Fun!!!
