Unexpected

Unexpected

There are days that I feel like saying, “I’m not even supposed to be here!” Life after college felt unexpected. I took a series of wrong turns. Yet, I ended up here, which is not so bad.
Every winter, I cannot believe that I’m still in Ohio. I try to be more optimistic about living here. My family is here. I have friends here. However, with social media, I can take my friends with me . . . sort of. Anyway, I’ll be here for awhile. So I might as well go play in the snow, right?
My boyfriend said something unexpected the other day. I asked him why he was stuck in Ohio. He said because of family. I thought he meant his parents and siblings. He meant me. 🙂

  1. I feel that way when I think about once again living in NC. I don’t really want to be here. At the same time if I move away, I’ll be further from family and their ability to develop even a sometime-relationship with Hun and Baby (and any subsequent babies).

    Then again, there were times when I lived away I wanted to be back. Not because of my blood family, but because of the family connections I developed with people who could be present and real in life with me.

    It’s an ongoing battle for me.
