Finding inspiration and motivation to write can be tough for me some times, this has been the problem as of late. I have spent so much time writing papers for school that I have not had the drive to write on here. Luckily, I was saved today by a friend of mine who writes a blog called “Approaching Metonoia“. After reading his blog post from today just a couple of minutes ago, I was inspired to write something of similar context.
Since I found out that I’ll be moving out to the Boston area my life has been a blur, but time has been moving very slowly at the same time. It has been about a month since I returned from my trip out to the area and I feel as though it was so long ago. Until about three weeks ago I wasn’t entirely sure that I’d be going, but then I received my job offer letter and things started to take shape. I have since found an apartment for the summer months, purchased a new computer to help me tackle new tasks at work, and begun packing and eliminating some of my possessions.
Like my friend, I am about to embark on a completely new journey and chapter in life. For the past five years all I have known is the life of a college student. Because of this it is such an exciting, yet unnerving prospect to imagine life without school and homework. During this relocation I will also be undergoing a transformation. I am leaving so many things behind physically, mentally and emotionally; some of these things I would rather take with me and some I am glad to put behind me. I expect to be exposed to so many new experiences and fully anticipate some changes in my life. I welcome these experiences and changes.
I am only 16 days from college graduation, and 17 days from my move East. I feel as though I should be nervous, but the only emotion that comes to me is excitement. Again, I will be leaving behind family and friends, but those people will always be in my mind and, therefore, I don’t let myself get discouraged about that. Plus, it’s 2012, I’m only a call, text, e-mail, Skype call, etc. away.
Hopefully I will find more motivation to write within the next couple of weeks. After that I will be very busy with work, but I will have fresh material to write on. Cheers!
