Now and then

In the last few weeks amongst unpacking, working, schooling, exercising, and trying to settle back into as much of a ‘normal routine’ as possible, I’ve had a lot of reminders of how different my life is now compared to then; then being the past— whether it’s a month ago, a year ago, ten years ago, just the past.  These reminders have stemmed from old pictures I’ve found, familiar faces I’ve seen in public, and comforting voices I’ve recognized on the phone. All of these reminders got me to thinking…sheesh my life has changed.

From being a fully employed city-girl one year, to an international exchange student the next, and now currently a full-time student/ rural-America girl in the present, I’ve sure had my fair share of change. But I guess change is what makes life exciting, right? I tend to think so.  I haven’t had a single second to be bored this past year, and while I truly don’t regret a second of it, I have to admit, after all of the excitement of moving to Australia and the mixed emotions of both sadness/joy over moving home, it does feel peaceful to be in one-place, unpacked, and at home for awhile. So when I got to thinking about just how different my life is now from then, I had to get it out on paper (or in this case, on the blog).
