It has been exactly 44 days since I moved to NC, and I must say I am loving my life. I realize now how much of a recluse I was when I lived in DC. Let’s compare my weeks, shall we?
An Average Week in DC:
-Monday: After work go home and watch How I Met Your Mother
-Tuesday: After work go home and watch LOST
-Wednesday: After work go home and watch Modern Family
-Thursday: After work babysit for four hours
-Friday through Sunday: After work either travel to NC for a weekend, host friends from NC for a weekend, or hang out with local friends in DC.
An Average Week in NC (for example, just this last week:)
-Monday: After work go home and cook dinner with J and my roommate
-Tuesday: After work go to a Durham Bulls baseball game with J and some coworkers
-Wednesday: After work have dinner with J and his family then watch a movie together
-Thursday: After work go over to a friend’s house for a double date to make homemade pizza
-Friday: Get off of work early, go out for dinner, and then go to the $1.50 movie theater
-Saturday: Hit up yard sales with three girlfriends, run much-needed errands, meet up with J’s sister at the pool, then spend the evening with J cooking dinner and relaxing.
-Sunday: Go to church, go out to brunch with J’s family, attend a surprise anniversary party in the afternoon for an old family friend, and then go out to dinner with my parents who had come to visit for the party.
Have I mentioned before how much happier I am now? :)
Sounds like you’re having a great time now that you’ve moved.. I’m glad you’re happier now! I’m moving soon but won’t know many people, so I hope I can eventually get out of my apartment during the week!
Hey! I’ve been a reader for awhile and just wanted to say how happy I am for you! …and a bit jealous as I love living in a new area and discovering a new place!
The variety and quality of your life has absolutely been improved! how wonderful.
I wish my friend could take a page out of your book. Good for you!
Dang girl! You’re busy! I love hanging out w/ my peeps, but I also enjoy down time during the week. But I’m soooo happy you’re enjoying NC so much!! YAY!!
Haha that’s sort of like my life in Austin vs. my life in NYC!
