Plano: Day 1
I’m having a hard time deciding what to write. Normally, I’d think this a problem of writer’s block or stupidity, but I think the problem is that I’m simply overwhelmed with everything that’s happening. I was fortunate that the movers were able to deliver my things to my apartment this morning (as opposed to Friday or so, as I was originally told); I was not so fortunate because the movers essentially destroyed my computer desk and apparently scuffed up the screen to my computer monitor. The good news is that the computer desk will probably be replaced; the bad news is that the monitor probably can’t be fixed (it’s a pretty minor blemish), but the scuffs will probably annoy me to no end. As far as I can tell, the rest of my stuff is fine.
I have to keep reminding myself that people make this kind of transition all the time. I’m trying to realize that it is inevitable that I will eventually move away from most, if not all, of my college friends and that others have done this before without much trouble. I feel like I’ve unpacked most of my boxes, but there’s still a box that I haven’t gotten to, and, when I go to open that box, a bunch of my friends will jump out and yell, “Surprise!” I have friends here, but most of them are newlyweds and I don’t expect to see too much of them too soon.
This is going to be a tough transition and I knew that going in. I just hope I’m settled down and comfortable soon.
