Waiting for My Real Life to Begin

The life and times of a girl named Swishy.

I don't even know

I am in this weird zone right now. I feel like there is SO MUCH going on and NOTHING going on at the same time. Sometimes I'm cranky, sometimes I'm bored, sometimes I'm fine. I think maybe I haven't really settled into the whole "this is my life now" thing yet. I'm OK and everything, I just have no idea how this is all going to turn out and it's a little weird.

Anyway. I have a few stories, but they involve work people and generally I don't blog about work people, at least not work people on a social level, so I'm not sure if I should tell them or not. It's just ... I'm shaking my head, put it that way. Shaking my head and thinking, I CANNOT HANDLE BOYS. Also, HOW CAN THIS BE HAPPENING WHEN I HAVE ONLY BEEN HERE A WEEK AND A HALF?!?

A WEEK and a HALF. It feels so much longer, you have no idea.

Anyway. Work is fine, I have no apartment, basically nothing is new in that department. I do not have a coffee shop yet and it is freaking me out, for real. I have this crazy weird schedule right now, so I was off yesterday, and I did all the usual stuff I do in the morning on my day off--pay my bills, run my errands--and then I was like, I'm supposed to go to my coffee shop now and blog about CIA agents! I'm SUCH a person of habit ... the schedule itself is hard enough to get used to, but then on top of it my day OFF schedule is different and I'm like a little lost puppy dog. The whole working out thing is tripping me out, too. My work has a gym but I'm a little scared of it, plus I would sort of have to work out before work and I like getting ready at home because there's just a lot of stuff involved that I don't want to schlep around. The hotel has a treadmill, which I've used like once, and I still have my old gym membership but I haven't found the location here yet.

Lame.

On the plus side, I've been playing a new game of "drive around and see if I can find a Target." It makes me unbelievably, irrationally happy to find a Target and see the same stuff inside that was at my old Target. It's like, FINALLY, at least SOMETHING didn't change!

Wow. I am so boring. I'll have to work on that.

To me you are not boring. You have just moved across the country for a new job! It will take a while to get settled....that's to be expected. Once you choose a coffee shop and establish yourself there, you'll feel more at home. And then you'll find a new CIA agent.

Hugs,
Betty

So NOT boring!!

Sorry about your lack of apartment. Glad to hear you found your Target happy place.

Oh, and lately, I can't handle boys either!

Its a good thing you always have Target. :)

When you find a coffee shop, and they can supply you with all kinds of coffee goodness life will get better. You might even find someone more interesting than CIA agent. What if you happen to frequent the same coffee shop as Pacey Whitter? You never know, it could happen.

Maybe you can find a Target with a Starbucks inside?

Aw, Target. Making people feel at home no matter where they are. :)

Hang in there, sweetie!!

Dude - my word verification is 'chilin'

You're not boring, and I know that for a fact cuz you've been telling me all the REAL stuff that's been going on in SWISHY's Life! The stuff that you can't or don't want to blog about yet.

The boy stuff ... hee hee hee.

Oops, should I write that here? Or not. Maybe not. You can delete it you think necessary. I'm evil, but not as evil as those who put up ugly spoon-nose facebook photos! hahahahahah

Ok, I knew he fell in love with you. Honest, that's it, right? Except it's prolly more than one.

You're not boring at all. Plus, keep in mind "they" say it takes 3 whole months to adjust to a new job and that doesn't even consider moving at the same time. So be easy on yourself. And take care of you.

You're lucky that Target has the same stuff. When I go to mine and then my mom's (15 minutes the other direction), they frequently have slightly different items. It always irritates me. :) Good luck settling!

my target has a starbucks....so maybe that'll work out for you too :)

be patient...it'll all smooth out soon.

When I think of you many things come to mind- but boring is never one of them. Hang in there we're rooting for you.

Ohhhh, poors Swishy. It'll take time to settle in (and an apartment) and for that area to feel like home. You can't expect to happen in a few weeks, or even a few months. It could take 6 - 12 months! But you are so very brave for taking this turn in your life and just going for it.

Things will all fall in to place and one day you'll realize "hey, this is home, and this my routine!".

Hope you find that coffee shop soon! Have you check the yellow pages???

Swishy you are NOT boring. I look forward to your stories. My life is very routine.

Things will get better. I wish you luck in finding a apartment soon. Once you do that and get all your belongings settled it will be easier.

My local Target has a Starbucks inside, and also ANOTHER one in a building right next door! Coffee nirvana . . .

Hang in there, Swishy girl, you will get through this and be just fine. Really! :-)

Oh honey, I'm so glad to hear that I'm not the only one who finds comfort in Target!

Sorry it's so crazy, it will get better soon! and holy hell find a stinkin' coffee shop, cuz I'm missin' your CIA posts!!! (it's all about me Swishy!)

I moved two weeks ago and when I found the Target, I had the same "Oh thank gawd it's exactly the same" moment. The small things we live for, you know?

 
At 11:54 PM, Blogger Barrie said...

CIA agents probably look for Targets too! It takes a while to get settled. Thinking of you.

Never, ever boring! Your posts are always a bright spot for me. Getting adjusted to a new area takes time, I know you know that. I do think once you get your own place to live, things will start falling into place. It sounds like you are off to a good start, despite the small setbacks. Hang in there, take it day by day.
Sending hugs.
XXXXXX

I did the same thing when I first moved to Dallas - drived around looking for a Target b/c the one closest to me was no bueno, it was crappy and had the worst selections. Once I found the Super Target, it was the best feeling ever. It was like I was home ;)

 
At 10:27 AM, Blogger Elle Charlie said...

I totally know how you feel about the Target. I feel that way about Starbucks. Seriously. That's the first thing I did when we moved to MN - locate my Starbucks options. At least that will be the same here as it was in Boston.

Hey, we all need to cope. Coping is a positive sign. :)

You are not boring! You just need to get your bearings. I cannot even imagine not having a coffee shop. Targets make me happy too.

You're not boring, just adjusting.

I know how you feel about Target. I moved from Washington state to British Columbia, Canada and there are NO TARGETS HERE. It drives me batty.

I shouldn't have read this the night before I start my new job. Because I'm already freaking out about my first day and I didn't even move halfway across the country!
