I’ve been meaning to sit down and write something. The time…I had…the words…I didn’t.
I thought this transition back to living in the US would be different. I’d only been away for 18 months completing my master’s degree and I came back and realized I’d changed…a lot.
Want to know what it’s like to cross off the #1 item on your list of life goals?! It was satisfying for about 5 seconds…before I realized that I needed to get my tail in gear to accomplish #2. I’ve been working on identifying goal #2 for about three months now. I’ve got NOTHING. I’ve come up with all of these things I want to do, but do they come close to my #1 (moving to Spain to work, study, and learn Spanish)?! Not really.
As I think about what I want my new #1 life goal to be, I’m surrounded by a ton of other decisions. Should I invest in a membership to the local symphony so I can continue to enjoy those concerts I fell in love with? Do I adopt a dog? Should I look for a car that has four doors (instead of my current one that has two)? Should I start setting myself up to buy a condo? Kids…
I honestly don’t think I could feel more lost.
What I’m going to do tonight is finish reading my book, see my friends for a few hours of trivia, and write down some goals to think about.
