Check out my Facebook info and one of the first things that will pop up on the screen is Relationship Status: Single. It's actually been this way for a
Beyond my relationship status, I am teaching my favorite grade level at a wonderful school and love my coworkers. But once again... I shy away from settling down. I'm not committed to staying at this school until retirement (which would ironically be 29 more years!) Instead, I plan to teach there for at least 2 more years and then move on to something new. Maybe even a private school. I've built amazing relationships with my coworkers and have created my perfect classroom, but there is still the assumption that something better is out there.
I am also living in a breath taking apartment that I ironically know I will be moving out of within months. I had the apartment completely decorated within the first two days of moving in and haven't changed a thing since except for a book or towel here or there. It is comfortable and picturesque but definitely not grounded. There is nothing particular about the apartment that I am attached to... except for the obnoxiously big closet. And although I am going to be sad to see the apartment go, I moved in with the notion that I would only be here for a year.
Now, I am on to the next chapter in my life: Buying a house. For the past month, I have been in house hunting mode... spending hours on listing book every night and open-housing on the weekends. This week I believe that I may have found the perfect house but still that annoying little questions, "what if there is something better out there," is haunting me.
Finally, I have reached the point in life where I am throwing my "what ifs" to the wind. Bring what it may, let life hit me full speed. I am ready for change and meeting it with an open mind... without the what ifs.
