*inserts shocked face emoji*
I’ve been oscillating back and forth between uber excitement and sheer terror. School has been my biggest comfort zone since.. well… forever. I can’t ever remember not being in school. The whole idea of having to face the looming future and put on my big girl panties is intimidating. And a little unsettling, to say the least.
Oh well. This post was more of a rant than an advice-giving fest, in hopes of anyone out there in bloggingland who can relate to my call to help. Anyone? (echoes into cyberspace)
For those of you that know what I’m going through – virtual fist pump – here’s what I’ve been doing to survive these next few months:
· Establishing a schedule. For everything. Fitness, health, finance, and even personal time for me to pamper myself. ^_^ Planners are helpful with this!
· Saving a little dough. Dinero is much needed to get over that first financial hump of moving out. The mo money, less moving problems!
· Spending time with friends. Personally, I’m not planning to move far, but regardless, I won’t be as close to them as I am now. And they may be moving themselves as well. Savoring time with the ones you love is never time wasted.
