Going off my last post, “packing/sorting”, I have finally moved to my new home (for now … until we move again in a year or so) in Charleston, South Carolina. Saying my farewells to my family, especially my parents, was definitely such a hard thing to do. The image of the moments at the airport will stay with me forever, keeping the true emotions behind our smiles, and turning away and tears start coming down our faces. It’s never easy to say good bye to the ones you love the most and nor will it get any easier. I miss them everyday that I’m away, but I know I’ll see them again soon.
I got a letter from my mom and video from my brother, I saved them for the plane ride because I knew I’d be bawling my eyes out and sure enough I did, for a while too. As the weeks go on, it gets a bit easier to adjust to this new environment. The first week was definitely the hardest, but I made it through okay. Time goes on and it gets better.
Charleston is definitely a place to get use to, I’ve been at home for most of it, most of it is on me, I guess you could say. There are some things that I should have taken care of, but never did, now I’m paying for it here. We can’t be dwelling on it now.
It’s hot and humid here, the first week I was here, the AC wasn’t circulating to our room very well, so it was horrible trying to sleep at night. I have no idea how the boyfriend managed to sleep in this condition for so long, but then again, he can handle just about any kind of weather, this I’m quite certain of. Driving in the car with the windows down in high 90 degree weather, he’s crazy! And I’m sure he figured this out already, but the hotness and humidity can make me a bit grumpy.
Until next time.
