I was nervous when we left our apartment. Kris and I waited at the bus stop and looked at each other anxiously trying to figure out exactly what we were doing. But we’re prepared and we’ll figure things out. And in reality we haven’t left for the international portion of the trip just yet. Nope. We’ve got a slow transition in and are spending the week in Southern California.
It was wedding weekend in San Diego and the days were spent in a house with old college friends with beer flowing freely along with stories from the past and present. Of course we’re growing up (slightly) with some now married, and some with kids; some starting new jobs, and some taking in what life brings them.
As I was reminded once again about how life is and how life was nearly a decade ago when college started, I of course had to think about what the hell I’m doing with my life. Why after five and a half years I’m already bored of climbing the corporate ladder. Why I thought it was a good idea to pack my bags and try to wander the world. And what’s waiting for me when I return.
I have no answers. I have no plans. All I know is that I’m glad we chose the perfect jumping off point for our travels. To say hello and goodbye to close friends, to celebrate a new life for Christine and Jesse, and to kick off a new adventure for Kristin and I.
To Jake, Lisa, Justin, Brigid, Adam, Kate, Jesse, Christine, Kurt, Al, and Katie: It was great to see you guys. Stay tuned.
