I'm really moving to Atlanta? Really?

Ok so now that school is ending and I'm actually getting ready to move it's getting time to start updating this thing more regularly.

First off--we didn't get that other place. It's a long story but let's just say the guy was an asshole and it fell through.

But the GOOD thing is that we found an even better place. In the same area (Midtown), ACROSS from the marta line, 2 bed 2 bath on the 22nd (top!) floor!! We LOVE it and I'm so glad we found a great place.

I started packing tonight. Not just a couple of things, like REALLY packing. I have seven big boxes done. All of my shelves are empty, my walls are bare, and in its place are these gigantic, stark boxes.

I found my yearbooks from highschool while I was packing. I was looking through the notes that people wrote to me promising to stay in touch, how we were such good friends, etc. It makes me sad to think that I was at one point so close to these people, but now we rarely talk. I know that's life.....but it just made me start thinking about what the next year will bring. How many of the people that I am so close to now will I still be close to? Who will keep their promises?

So here I am, sitting in Emily's room because she is out of town, Sam has people over partying, Lynn is out with her friends, and I feel so lonely. To the point it aches deep inside. I don't know if I have enough gas to get to Brian's house or not but I'm going to try, because the next time I feel this lonely he will be three states away.

So this is how I am going to feel every day for the next three years...awesome. I hope this job is worth it.

I heart you. And I promise I'll keep in touch. I have lost more than my share fair of friends to time and distance and I have learned that in the end the ones you do manage to keep are the best of the best. And I think you and I both qualify. I love you!

Hey all you have to do is bribe me with Braves tickets and I'm there ;)

Kidding (partially). Take it from me - I didn't move as far away from Richmond as you are about to, but it is a true test to see who your true friends are and filter out who's willing to actually work to maintain a friendship with you. Distance sucks, but picking up the phone or hopping online isn't any harder when you're in a new place.

You worked way too hard to get where you are right now, and honestly, doing what you're about to do take guts. So many people would not have accepted the incredible job opportunity simply because they were scared to start a new life in the unknown. You're a strong girl - you're gonna make it. I have total faith :)
