so to build my lifeskills and whatnot
who amongst you has moved far away from a home they loved very much? how did you handle it? what did you do to make it easier?
also who lives in brooklyn/nyc or DC and would be willing to be a support network for a delicate baby princess aka me?
I was 21 when I moved here. 3.5 years later I still don’t love it (I moved for school not work though, so I think that has a lot to do with it; much of my undergrad experience wasn’t super positive).
School made it a bit different because there was built in socialization amongst my peers. I met my first love here, and that has influenced a lot of my time here, in a generally good way.
BE INVOLVED. Find something outside of work that you love and where you meet like-minded individuals. I fence, and i don’t know what I would do without the amazing support network that I’ve developed through that.
Make sure you’re OK with being alone (but also, certain internet hangouts help a lot with that). Get a cat (that has helped so much).
You’ll cry and that’s OK.
I would eventually try and visit you in NYC/DC! WOOO EAST COAST LYFE
