I made it!
Finals are done, and after a weekend in Des Moines for Demicon, I have made my way to Chicago for a week with two families that I can’t get enough of. I’m with the McCartys, that I know I’ve mentioned before, until tomorrow and then I’m with Kennedys. I’ll post pictures later, I’m sure. I brought a camera with me this summer and lord knows that I can’t take enough pictures of Mia McCarty.
While I’m super excited to be here and it’s very relaxing there is a bit of nervousness (read: a lot of nervousness) chewing at the back of my head. Next week I’ll be in Minneapolis, and the week after I’m moving to New York. It’s a big thing for me. A big change, and while I’m excited about it, I’m also terrified. I’m glad that this is a process for me instead of just one step from Maryville, MO to NYC, NY.
I spoke about my fear of failure Tuesday for the Vlogtastic Five video in terms of work for my internship, but something that also really worries me is my relationship. I’m moving in with my boyfriend Will for the summer. The longest we’ve ever spent together is three weeks, and while those were a really awesome three weeks, an entire summer is a lot different than three weeks. Living by myself for the summer really isn’t an option because even though it’s a paid internship, they’re not paying me enough for an apartment in NYC.
So yeah, moving in with him is a little scary. Don’t get me wrong, awesome, but definitely on the scary side. His parents are awesome, but aside from them, I don’t really know anyone out there.
So, for now, I’m trolling my mother’s friends list and the internet trying to meet people before I get on that plane. If you’re reading this and happen to be in New York, hit me up! For now, I’m going to go enjoy my Saturday with my family in Chicago.
