I’m not sure why it took so long for it to hit me that this is my life now. For whatever reason, it felt almost temporary, or like some kind of dream.
I live in Albany. That in itself is still weird to me. I have been so connected to western NY my whole life, and now even though I’m only a few hours away, I feel as though I’m across the country sometimes. The convenience of driving to visit friends was something I took for granted, and hardly realized it. I don’t know what made it click for me today, but I’m starting to get more used to “being from Albany.” I’m still struggling to make true friends here, but it’s getting a little better.
My job is something I never imagined I would be a part of; which was another reality that hit me hard today. Naturally, the first few weeks of a new job mean lots of learning, adjusting, and figuring everything out. Now, I feel a little more stable, even though I have a lot more to learn.
A lot of little things make me come closer and closer to this realization, like today when I was thinking about my 21 Day Fix food plan. I knew where the foods were located in the new supermarket I go to…the supermarket that I didn’t even know existed two months ago. Woah. It’s weird. Along those lines, I felt it only necessary that I also give myself a few adult points for planning an entire week’s worth of meals, following my new container-eating system.
I’m already two months into my new job, and just over two months of living in Albany, and now I’m trying to make a big change in my diet and exercise routine. Wow. Life moves fast, and faster when you don’t think it’s going to change at all.
