Moving and moving on

I'm beginning to realize just how difficult moving can be, especially moving to a new city where I don't really know anyone.  I have a few friends here that I've gotten to see from time to time, which is definitely amazing.  It can be so nice just to see a familiar face, but even though this change can be really tough, I keep reminding myself that I just have to give myself time to adjust.  I'll meet new people and develop new friendships.  Things just take time.

So, as pick me up, last night I made a list of my pows and wows for yesterday -- pows are down parts of your day and wows are good parts of your day.

- Being homesick
- Not getting all the work done that I was intending to get done

- Finding Graeters ice cream in Chicago!
- Working out
- Having a close friend remind me that everything will get better, that it just takes time.
- Discovering Lady Gaga's new song:  You and I
- Blowing bubbles in my room :)
