Can you believe it? I have been here for 1 month! It’s crazy to think that I have been here that long. The first month has flown by. I have been so busy with work and settling into my new place that I haven’t even notice how fast the weeks have gone!
Let’s start at the beginning. The day I moved down was one of the most stressful/nerve-wracking/ anxiety filled days I have ever had. I am glad my mom rode with me because at least I had someone to talk to, someone to just be there. I had my two favorite views with me. Keweenaw Bay between Baraga and L’Anse and my stress cow. Giving yourself something to look at to take the stress away really does help.
Most everything is put away and I no longer have piles of stuff and boxes everywhere. I have cutest little apartment that I could every have hoped for. It is the perfect size for me. Moving into this apartment I have realized that I do not need a whole lot of space to be comfortable and live the way I want to. Yes, I have found that out in only a month. I have learned a lot in a month. I am sure I will learn more as time goes on, but so far I am loving my place.
Where I live is the cutest town I have ever seen. It is all decorated for the holidays right now and its just so pretty. It is also pretty cold. Walking around I feel like I am right back in Copper Harbor. The wind off the lake is the coldest wind I have ever felt. It’s still a cute town. I am really excited to get out and explore and experience more! I know once spring and summer come the tourists are going to be very typical. Everyone has said, “Oh wait until summer and then tell me how much you like it here.” I am sure that most people I have talked to have no idea that Copper Harbor is a tourist town as well and I am very used to dealing with them.
Work. Oh beautiful, wonderful, lovely work. I love my job. It’s a job, yes, and I am loving it! Every day I am dealing with different people and hearing different stories and it’s just so amazing! Do I get those who are unhappy and crabby and nothing I do will please them? 110% yes. The first couple days my brain hurt like no other. I was so overwhelmed with everything that we have to do and all the different rooms and steps to everything but I feel like I finally have it all down.
Every day I feel like I am where I am suppose to be doing what I am suppose to be doing. For a while, before I moved here, I was a lost soul just looking, wandering, trying to find where I was suppose to be. Wondering where I fit in this world. I believe I finally found it and I cannot wait to see where this life takes me!
