it’s time to get real.
i’m going to give y’all a real update on where i’ve been/what i’ve been doing/what life’s been like.
in june, i moved from eastern nc where i was living with my wonderful husband back to home, right outside of chiacgo, so i could finish my associates degree.
i ended up getting a job at starbucks and a few weeks later i was offered a second job working at one of my favorite local boutiques which i absolutely accepted! working both jobs over the summer was fine but when school started i began to drown in my workload. in order to be done with all my required classes, i signed up to take three classes this semester but because of my insane schedule, i ended up dropping a class. i will not accomplish what i moved home to do which upsets me greatly. i will , however, finish my degree in the spring. no ifs, ands or buts! even though i was only going to school part time, my grades still sucked and i was just beastly unhappy. i decided to leave starbucks because while i’ll forever love a double tall cinnamon dolce latte, i just couldn’t handle everything. life dramatically improved after i quit so i’m a much happier camper just balancing my fab boutique job and school.
everyone always told me that “home is where your husband is”. i didn’t really believe this. yes, i love living with my husband but i’m an independent woman! i can live away from him! right? wrong. i missed my partner, my husband, the father to our baby dog, but mostly i missed my best friend. my family told me moving back home would be hard; i never imagined it to be this difficult.
my time at home is almost up! i’m heading back to nc in a little over a week to house hunt and i’ll officially be moving back right after christmas.
so there you have it. a little down and dirty, nitty gritty, recap of what life has been like lately.
while i’ll forever treasure the time i’ve spent at home and all the things i’ve experienced, it’s true:
home is where your husband is.
and i can’t wait to be back there!
