I am in the midst of packing my life into boxes. I’m certainly not taking everything with me this time (someday when I am more permanent, I will bring the rest), but it is amazing how much it amounts to. And much of it is books and clothing. There is a fair amount of kitchen type things, and I haven’t even begun on bathroom stuff yet. Not to mention all of my computer/desk/extra crap I’ve accumulated and feel the need to bring with me.
I’m not good with transitions. When I interview and they ask me if I am flexible, I frequently give the right answer, but not the true answer. I am not flexible. I need time to process, time to consider, time to accept change before I can fully enter into it. Two and a half weeks has not been enough. And even though I can see the piles of boxes growing ever larger, I am still in disbelief that I will actually move in two days.
I’ve never truly left home before. When I did my undergrad, I came back every Christmas break and nearly every summer. And I knew I was coming home when I finished. This time, I don’t intend to come back except to visit. It’s strange to say goodbye to an area I grew up in, to people I’ve known forever.
Wednesday will come too soon.
