I was half-way through writing yesterday’s post before I threw in the towel. I was just getting really down, and was started to be incapacitated by sadness of moving.
I was feeling pretty gung-ho for the first few days of being in our suburb of Detroit; the big city, the big oppurtunities, the big change.
But yesterday– I hit a wall.
Who cares if there is cool vegan cafes?
Who cares if I’ll be able to find new opportunities?
Who cares if there is a natural food store is a mile from my new house?
I WANNA GO HOME!
I wanted to go back where it was familiar; where I didn’t get lost trying to go to the grocery store, had volunteer obligations, and friends. I didn’t have a bazillion friends in the first place, and leaving the close friends I had is difficult. It doesn’t help that I’m not too great at the “ice-breaking” part of friend making.
After liberal amounts of crying at my losses (TMI? Sowwie), I decided to opt out of errand running with the rest of my family and stay home.
I turned on the radio. I love news stations :).
Created in the kitchen.
Oh, and downed two iced hot cocoas, one homemade mocha, and an iced peppermint tea.
All made at home. All served in my favorite mug :D.
I even talked to some of the folks at the science center back home!
By the end of the day, I was still slightly sad, but felt much better overall.
Now I’m once again ready to dive head-first into my recipe creating, rat adventures, and new restaurant exploring (because all the vegan cafes and eateries here in the area need me).
Are you good at making friends? I’m not a big party goer but I can hold up a conversation and can be perfectly social when I want to be (problem is I don’t always want to ;)). It’s the introductory part that hinders me when it comes to making new friends!
