Other person who is the best: J, who gave up spending time with his son to help me move, drove the van for me, came back to my place to stay with me because I was anxious even though he had to drive two hours back and forth to get his son from his parents’ place after my move, and then had to work late, and is just all around amazing and the best person I could ever ask to be dating, and who makes me more happy every day we spend together.
Don’t be friends with book lovers. Be friends with cottonball collectors, for the sake of moving day.
I don’t know if you’re aware, but I have the most amazing friends ever. They brought me coffee, helped me move all my heavy furniture and books, then set up my bed and bookshelves and stuff while I was dropping off the van, and then unpacked most of my books for me, and then gave me moral support and also promised to come visit me every week because I feel lonely in my new place.
God I hope I feel better about this move once it’s done.
J’s kiddo had a sleepover last night, and when I left the house this morning his bedroom light was on and they were giggling and chattering, and although I don’t want kids of my own it’s kinda nice to have ‘em around.
I am working really hard to not let myself slip into an anxiety spiral about moving.
I like the place, but I still don’t feel right when I think about it, and my instinct is usually right.
But, no matter how it turns out, it’s only for a year, it will help me save some money and give me more options, and in a year I’ll be in a better position to know what move I want to make and whether I want to try to find somewhere to settle down more permanently in Asheville or if I want to leave.
And maybe I’m just anxious about the change and everything will be just fine.
