Changes

I often feel like my life is quite stagnant. For the past couple of years, I've worked the same job, known the same people, and while I've moved a couple times (all locations within a small radius of each other) my life hasn't really changed. I haven't really changed. I did start school last year to get my Masters degree, and while that was different, it didn't really change my life. At least not in a big, wave making sort of way. Not a change large enough to notice. But now big changes are coming. 

When I was growing up we moved a lot. I was born in the small town of Deckerville, MI, although my family lived in the smaller town of McGregor, MI. When my dad got into Michigan State University we moved to East Lansing. After he got his degree, we moved to Lansing. Then we moved at some point to Onondaga - but Eaton Rapids schools, then to Plainwell, then to Mason, then I was old enough to move out and I moved to East Lansing, then to Lansing proper, then to Haslett and then to Williamston. But even with all of that moving around, you never really get prepared for making a big move across several states.

So Thursday, I'm moving the majority of my things to Athens Georgia. 781 miles. Half a day of driving. Very far from the people I know, very far from where I've been. Thursday, I'll be dropping my stuff, then driving back, cleaning my current place, getting my cats, and driving to Athens again. Then the tedious unpacking and job search begins.

Why am I talking about all of this? Well, it's become apparent that as I box my life as I know it and make some big changes this blog is going to go unmanned until I get settled and have the opportunity to really dedicate the time to it that it deserves. Hopefully that doesn't put my kind readers into a deep depression that only multitudes of cat comics can heal. I don't anticipate a large break in my posts, but I wanted to let everyone know why I seem to be missing. Thank you for bearing with me in the meantime. ;)

Life can be hectic for us all, you can't control every situation every time. All you can really do is roll with the punches and hope that all is well. Best luck!

It can be very scary moving to a new place away from everyone you know. But think of all the room that leaves for new adventures! I wish you well!

Good luck with your transistion. I hope all goes well. Change can be scary, but it can also serve as an awakening.

I wish you well on your new journey. It's strange the way I found you. Here I am, 5:00 AM (been up since 4ish) and can't sleep because my brain won't shut up about the new vampire series I'm writing, which takes place in a fictitious town in between McGregor and the town I currently live in, Deckerville, Michigan! LOL
I looked up synonyms (one being for "new") to come up with the town name, did a check on McGregor and Deckerville and the Google path led me to you, near the bottom of the first page - always follow through so you leave no loose ends - even if it is just a Google search. :D Anyhoo, best of luck!
