A Year in Georgia

It’s been a year since I’ve packed up a few things and moved out here to Georgia. If I say life was great I would not be speaking the truth. Transitioning from one state to another is not the easiest thing. Feeling the disconnect from the life one has lived for their entire life is a constant feeling, at least it has been for me so far.

Don’t get me wrong. I love Georgia and have no plans of moving back to New York, but change is very difficult. The area I live in (Lawrenceville) is different, different culture, different lifestyle, just different. It’s not a good or bad different, just a different to get accustomed to.

Making friends, finding a job, becoming acquainted it is all a work in progress. I miss my set of Friends. Making good friends is hard to do as I mentioned in a previous blog post Here. There are times i feel nostalgia when thinking about New York and I begin to miss simply hanging out with friends.

Finding solid ground as far as work has been a challenge for me. As much as I love what I do I think I will have to take my self back in the  public school system.  I am a preschool teacher and it is different ( to say the least) out here in my experience.

All in all if you’re anything like me. Change is hard. As hard as it is, making this move was one of the best decisions I have made and although it is indeed hard it was necessary and I do not regret it.

  1. Change is definitely hard. Though it seems liberating to pick up and move. Sometimes, I wish i could do that and just start over. I have kids so it isn’t as easy. I try to be the fair co-parent. So I’d never want to pull him away from his kids like that even if we don’t get along. Anyway. Good article. I hope you meet some new friends soon. I’m sure you will

  2. I love your outfits. I’m originally from NY and now I live in NC so I understand what you’re going through. One of my college friends is from GA. Hopefully, you’ll come across some cool people.

    1. Yes it is very different. I’ve been further south (for visits), so I know it’s much different and I stick out like a sore thumb. Lol

  3. I’m so glad that you’re finding your way. I know moving away from everything you know is a real challenge, and the little things along the way always help to make it a better transition.

  4. Trust me it’s not easy. I remember when I came to USA from Haiti, I cried every single day till I went back to Haiti for 2 months but I came back, I realized this will be my home for a long time 😭 .
    Love the jacket
