this is a quote i like to tell myself every time i see/hear about friends getting engaged, married, new jobs, having kids, etc and i'm feeling down about where i'm at in life.
today is one of those days i'll be repeating that quote as i pack up the last of my sf room and head back down south to live with my parents for a bit.
the transition back from spain hasn't exactly gone as smoothly as i would have liked.
while it was an awesome summer filled with friends, family, activities and travel, I didn't get the teaching job i was hoping for so i'm moving home while i figure out the next step.
don't get me wrong, i'm very happy to be moving home and getting to spend more quality time with my family, especially after being so far away for so long.
i'll get to do all the things i love to do at home like have a lot of time with my brothers, walks on the beach with my momma, spend time with my so-cal friends, help my daddy at work, visiting my sisters in LA, go to the beach, relax on my parents big comfy couch and by the pool.... obviously life will be tough ;)
but there's still a little disappointment knowing that had i not gone to spain i would have a teaching job and be living in sf. or if i had stayed in spain i would be teaching right now.
BUT, everything will work out like it's supposed to.
i am most definitely moving back to sf (sooner rather than later) but in the mean time i'm going to enjoy this chapter.
whatever chapter that is.
