Truth be told, I hate change. I always have. Growing up in the military, change meant moving away from my friends, my school, everything I was comfortable with and starting over. It meant going through the arduous process of packing up the house. Then it meant going through the equally arduous process of unpacking the house. It meant going to a new school where I didn't know a soul. Knowing that once again, I was going to be that annoying smart new girl. It meant going through the painstaking process of finding a new church and building all new relationships. In short, I hate change.
Right now, however, I am excited. When I think about the possibilities ahead of us, I get the tingling feeling that it is going to be amazing. I am excited about the prospect of a whole new adventure with my husband. I am excited about the prospect of establishing ourselves somewhere as a couple. Of meeting new friends who only know us as a married couple, not as single people who recently got married.
Austin has several interviews coming up in February, the most exciting of which is in California. I am currently studying for the GRE, preparing to go for my masters in English Literature. (That adventure probably won't begin until Fall of 2012 at the earliest, but I am beginning the preparation process).
For right now, we are just enjoying the early signs of those winds of change and dreaming of where we might end up.
