My first Sunday Salon and second blog post from my new home! Sure feels weird doing this, and that was part of the reason why I didn't blog for a week after getting here. More than physically getting settled down, I was yet to mentally settle down. My first day alone here was, in one word, depressing. Yeah, I have to say that. After two years of riotous fun and hanging out with friends all the time, the silence was quite uncomfortable initially. But well, guess what - I love it now!
After that first day, I've been relishing my time alone. I like it that all the mess in the house is caused only by me. I love it that I can set the AC to any temperature without anyone else sitting grumpily in a hoodie and shooting daggers at me. I love it that I can sing to my heart's content in my apartment without getting that dreaded knock in my door from a roommate preparing for her exam. I love it that I can cook in my kitchen at any time I wish. I love it that the silverware is no longer in the wrong slots in the holder. I love it that I don't have to put up with roommates' boyfriends staying overnight. And the list goes on and on! (Does this make ME sound as the bad roommate? I sure hope not.) I doubt this new-found giddy excitement will last long and I'm bound to wish for some company at home, but why not enjoy it while it lasts?
Lynchburg is as different from Blacksburg as possible. Even with five colleges/universities in the area, this place isn't half as buzzing as Blacksburg. How I miss the place! Never thought I would miss a small not-so-happening university town as Blacksburg. But what better place to be in than one where majority of the population are college students. You actually feel young there. *wink*
I start work tomorrow, and I have a very busy Sunday planned up, since all my to-do items from last week are still intact! I relished the one week break I got, and kind of wish it was longer, but my bank accounts are getting stretched to the limit, what with all the moving and shopping, so I better head to work.
Oh, and I visited New York the week before that, but sorry I didn't take any pictures. I just remember getting tired during those five days and I didn't even go sight-seeing! I fell in love with the transportation system in NYC though. It took me a while to get the hang of the subway, but after two trips, I was all ready to be someone's host, if needed.
