Left Behind

Thursday, April 10, 2014

I have always been the one to bounce around from place to place.  I've been the one to leave family and friends behind for a year at a time.  I've always been so focused on adventuring that I never really worried about leaving anyone behind.  But things are changing.  One of my good friends just got a job in New Jersey.  He and his girlfriend (my best friend) will be moving down there in the next couple of months.  Two of my other friends both work out of Manchester, NH and both are in the process of looking for apartments in that area.  One friend is still off traversing through New Zealand with her new husband.  My former roomie Kat is based out of NYC right now.  And D-Day (deployment day) is rapidly approaching for my boyfriend.

I am the one being left behind.

I am really very happy for all of them.  They are either in the middle of or about to start some amazing adventures and yet I can't help but feel like the cool kid in high school.  The one that seem to have everything they could want in life, but 10 years later is still living in the same small town working some dead end job with really nothing going for them.

I know that is me being overly dramatic but, hey, this is my blog and I can be as dramatic and whiny as I want.

I have been so lucky in the past to experience everything I have, and I know there is nothing really stopping me from doing whatever I want in the future, but I just can seem to wrap my head around what it is I want to do with my life.
