The past few days have been a mixture of settling in, and just enjoying being back. I don't always enjoy it, though. Everything seems like a challenge, again. I feel lost in my own hometown. Taking the bus or the subway is confusing, and the grocery store is overwhelming. I'm slowly getting re-acquainted with everything, though.
Seeing my friends is the best- nothing has changed at all. I also bought some food for the first time since I arrived (for the past week, I've been spoiled by my mom and my roommate!). It was fun to pick out my favorites, food I've barely touched in the past year: hummus, pita, special k cereal... I even baked some brownies last night... just for the thrill of baking.
I went to my former job to say hi to everyone, and honestly I couldn't be happier I left. It's a great workplace with amazing people, but there is no way I could be happy being back into it. I definitely need something new, and the upcoming week is dedicated to a full-time job search.
I still don't know how I feel about being here. It's definitely nice and comfortable, but it's just so challenging, and why did I miss it so much while I was gone?
