Back to Texas I Go



  • So I figured I'd let everyone here know, although those of you who are friends with me on Facebook should already know...

    I have made up my mind that I am going to move back to Texas. My original plan was to be there by September 1st, but my GM at my retail job today asked me "you can't stay through back-to-school?" I started to say how I couldn't but then I realized I really have no reason I can't...back to school really ends the Saturday after Labor Day, which also happens to be my birthday... (that's September 12th for our non-US friends)

    So now the plan is to move back to Texas after I celebrate my birthday in NY. That will also be a first. I'm sad to leave Upstate NY, and it will always be my home, but I need to move on. I have coordinated a place to stay once I get to Texas and will be working with a dear friend to help get some things in order in my life and my career. I may still end up moving to Georgia for a job but that remains to be seen.

    By being in Texas by the 16th or 17th, I will have arrived just in time for Spiceworld! I'm excited for that. I'm also excited to see many of my friends and adopted family again.

    Now I know what many of you are thinking: "did you just leave Texas?!" Yes, I was last in Texas on January 28 on this year, which is the day I left. So why go back to Texas? Well, I came back to New York for personal and emotional reasons. There were many things I think I needed closure on and I have obtained them, at least as much as I can.

    I hope that Texas will be a chance to start new. The first time I moved I was not ready, in many ways. That has changed a great deal and I'm excited to give Texas another shot. At this point, I'm going to let what happens, happens. I've given up trying to dictate every step of my life and rather guide it when I can and roll with it when I can't.

    Look out Texas, I'm coming back for Round Two!

    Job wise:
    -- All jobs are but a stepping stone in a creek (or river). Some are solidly planted and we do not fight to keep balance, and other are rocky causing a strain on us.

    Personal wise:
    -- We are not the person we were yesterday, last week, or a year ago. We adapt and we must keep moving forward (Dori just started sing "just keep swimming' in the back of my mind).

    Burn the box:
    -- There is no place in human existence for a box - to be confined, and surrounded by corners.

  • I haven't used a Uhaul for a darn thing this year and I want to keep it that way!
