Sitting here staring at a blank page I can’t decide what to write about.
How has life been?
It’s honestly been pretty great. I’m in the process of finding my footing here in Columbus. Being new to a city and not knowing to many people always makes for an adjustment but in an exciting way. I get to explore and discover new places with Nick or by myself. As I’ve shared in earlier posts doing things out in the world by myself hasn’t always been the easiest for me but over the last few months I’ve really grown in that area. I went to an art show by myself on OSU campus at the Wexner Center for the Arts and I really enjoyed myself. It wasn’t like how it used to be when I’d go out alone. Where I would have tunnel vision, only focused on what I needed then I’d try to get out as fast as I could, not enjoying myself one bit. This time I totally enjoyed myself, it was a nice surprise. My anxiety hasn’t really been very present at all which is crazy to me. I just wonder what in my life, back when I was having panic attacks and major anxiety daily, was causing that. I guess whatever it was has been eliminated from my life. So I’m pretty great full for that.
I’m definitely finding out who I am and my place here. I’m submitting an application and attending an orientation to volunteer at a no kill shelter here in Columbus called Pets without Parents. I’m excited to get that started and get out in the community. Not only will I be able to help pets in need but I will also meet new people. I would also love to foster pets so I’m going to look into that as well.
We love the area we are in. We have everything we need within 5 to 10 minutes. We have a couple amazing parks we like to go to with Eevee or to hike just the two of us. If we feel like venturing downtown we can be there within 20-ish min depending on traffic. So it’s a pretty ideal spot.
Slowly but surely I’ll find my place here in Columbus. I’ll come out of my shell, continue to grow, meet more people and discover more places. I’m very happy to call Columbus my home.
