I’m coming out of my cage
And I’ve been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
I spent last night packing my apartment, cleaning, and watching Harry Potter. It was a little sad, because moving is always a little sad, but I surprised myself by being sad about leaving Auburn.
Let’s not forget, I’m a transplant. I didn’t grow up here, and I certainly don’t have any ties to Auburn other than the fact that I’ve lived there for most of the time I’ve lived in Washington. I have many “less than favorable” memories of the area, so I was confused as to why I would be sad to leave.
Most likely, it’s the nostalgia of leaving one space altogether and starting another chapter elsewhere. This move will be similar to my move across the country, because Seattle is another living entity, with constant people, constant noise, and no reason to drive my car. I was familiar with Seattle before I moved to Washington, I’ve gotten to know it on an intimate level while here, but we’re officially taking “that” step…and I’m just a little nervous. It will be wonderful to be right in the middle of everything I have ever wanted in my adult life, but I can’t help being a little sad for what I leave behind. Thirty miles isn’t three thousand, so I shouldn’t be too sad.
Candice will give me a reason to come back, at least:)
As of 3pm tomorrow, I will be a resident of Seattle. I hope it’s everything that I’ve been wanting since…forever.
In other news, this song makes me dance around. Such a great band.
