Wow, I can’t believe a month has already flown by since my last blog. I told myself when I started this that I have to check in, I have to post regularly. Otherwise what’s the point, right? Well look at me two months in and already not keeping up!
Oh Well. I got a promotion, then it was furniture market, and then a homecoming. And wow look boy how time flies.
I will do some posts on my last few weeks…Shakori Hills Music festival, High Point furniture market, Pearl jam Concert but in the meantime I am just happy to finally be getting settled back in my normal routine.
I went down to Columbia for my annual South Carolina Football game this past weekend and boy it was a blast! I always go down and catch a game with my girlfriend. I have known Courtney for 13 yrs! We have so much fun and always laugh until our stomachs hurt. This trip was no different. I am so thankful to have a great friend like Court.
As we chatted over coffee this morning, she gave me some sage advice. I need to take the next year and embrace where I am and decide if this is really the place for me. I keep saying, is High Point my final destination? I live in an apartment rather than buying town home because I feel like I want to have the flexibility to move at a moments notice. But its really crazy at the same time because I love my job and I am starting to make roots here, so maybe I am more settled than I think. But anyways, Court’s advice was that I need to embrace this town as if I am going to make it home and stay here and see how I really feel in a year. And so I am going to change my attitude about the Triad and High Point and look at it as my final destination and see how I feel. See if I end up feeling differently about what I call home.
In the meantime the month of November is hopefully going to be somewhat quiet. I need some time to recoup. I feel like I have been on the go since summer! Not that I am complaining because the last 10 months have been fantastic! I just need to relax and recharge over the next few weeks. Not to mention I am sure work will stay super crazy anyways!
