where did all of this stuff come from…

5 Jul

I am moving to Lubbock, Texas ( hence the name of the blog) in two days. Granted I have known for an entire year that I would be moving to Lubbock in July, somehow the fact just never really sunk in. On Monday I had my last day of work in Austin, Texas. Leaving jobs has always been anticlimactic, but this one especially so. Every other time I have left a job it was an active decision- I need to get the f*** out of here. Substitute teaching- I hope I never see a single one of you kids again. Abercrombie and Fitch- same sentiment, but throw in a couple of four letters words for good measure and the strong desire to never listen to loud music ever again.

But my job at UT, while it was soul crushingly frustrating at times, showed me that who you work with is sometimes just as important as what you are doing. Sure most of my day was spent having parents yell at me, but what did it matter? I was surrounded by friends that I could laugh about it with as soon as they hung up. I know not every job I have will be like that, and that is why moving away from best friends I’ve had in years, and starting a new job in a new city ( I use that term loosely) is pretty frightening…

Am I excited to get married? Of course! Did I love Lubbock while I was there for undergrad? Yes! As a 25 year old woman am I a little worried about living there again? You betcha!
