'Justments

Well...I'm home. After losing my job in Maryland the last day of March, I sat around for a week, angry and annoyed, in limbo and in transition when I got word of another job back home in Delaware. It was almost like it was ordained. Got the job and literally had two weeks to get my stuff together and get back to the First State, which means I'm currently staying with family until I get enough time to find and secure an apartment.

Not the ideal circumstances (shelter-wise anyway), but I'm learning to adjust to life as it comes. I tend to be a black and white person - there's no middle ground or in between. Either you do or you don't, you will or you won't, it's a yes or a no. Kinda rigid, but I'm really not a fan of variables and extra stuff. Unfortunately, life doesn't care about what I want and what I like. I had to learn that when I was pushed out of my previous gig and then literally fell into another one less than two weeks later. Would I have been so fortunate had I not taken a chance? Probably not.

Either way, I feel good being back in Wilmington. Everybody I know is here, the city skyline welcomes me back from work every evening, and I just feel more at ease in the city and state I spent the first 26 years of my life in. Maybe you can go home again. Sure things'll be different, but as long as you feel comfortable, it's home. I was never comfortable in Southern Maryland. I'm comfortable here. I'm home.

Just another of life's adjustments.

    Good luck to you! I sisn't realize that you had left the DMV. I hope that the job works out well and that you enjoy yourself back in DE.
