I began this post with the notion that I was going to be able to complete it within the days in which I began it. Well, its been almost five weeks since then. And since then, I have officially relocated to the Atlanta Metropolitan Area. I am eager for new experiences. A new chapter in my life has begun with new people and adventures. I was initially nervous and excited, mostly apprehensive about where life would take me with this move. I've been wanting to move for the past year and am so glad the time has finally come. Many have asked, "Why Atlanta?" I think the better question is 'Why not Atlanta?'
First, let's discuss Richmond, VA. I honestly enjoyed my time as best as I could in Virginia but I knew in my heart that was not where I belonged. Summer nights quickly faded as winter days were seemingly endless. I was internally unhappy. I was not being creatively stimulated, which is of grave value to me in life. I love adventure and entertainment and I've had the hardest time finding those two components in that area. Falling in love with Richmond proved most difficult with the lack of things capturing and sustaining my interest. The city was too slow and the people were of a different caliber. I'm a southern girl at heart and that country living was just not giving me what I needed. Please don't mistake this as a diss to the city as I have met plenty of people who love Richmond to death. For me, it was just not where I wanted to be.
There is no one reason. I moved, literally, because I wanted to. This was something I wanted to do for myself and I did it. I quit my job, packed my stuff and seized an opportunity to call a sofa bed my home for the summer. I live for fun and excitement, therefore, it only made sense to live somewhere fun and exciting. I do not know what's ahead of me. But I am for sure not looking behind me. I can only go UP from here!
