"You Get What You Give"
Moving. Moving on. What does it mean? What does it all mean? Well... I'm finding that out now. I can't believe I can actually say this out loud, but i'm moving to New York on December 12th. You all knew I was moving, but you didn't know when. Heck, I myself did not know when I was going to move. I knew it was going to happen, but I did not know when. Towards the end of last week I got offered something I could not turn down. So I accepted it yesterday, and here we are. We are on our way to the grand finale of this storybook of mine. I can't believe I only have a few more pages to write in here. It's nuts. It has not hit me yet. I think it will really start to hit me as we get closer to December. There is still so much to do. Except every time I prep for shoots and hangout sessions, I always had more to look forward to. Now, it is different. There is a whole sense of an ending. It feels like i'm at the end of this road that's been worn out and traveled for far too long. I'm now going to have to feel what it is like to say goodbye to everything i've known, and say hello to the great unknown. We all know i've always wanted that, now i'm just really anxious and curious to see what that looks like. It's going to be interesting to watch it all unfold before my eye. Now that I have a place to live in Brooklyn, it's time to start packing up my things. I gotta pack it all up and have it start anew with me over on the east coast. It's been colder here in SF. Way too cold for anyone's liking. Plus the fires do not help it at all. It's too much. The wind is crazy, the skies are dark, the air is HORRIBLE... but we all gotta stay positive through it all. I don't feel like we are celebrating anything negative. I'm moving, I got a place to live, I get to spend more time than usual with everyone I love. For me, it's a win win. Today, I went out to brunch with Courtney and Holly to celebrate everything. I feel like we are just celebrating new phases in our lives. We are all at different places, but doing things that will impact us for the rest of our lives. I really needed days like this over the last few months, it's coming towards the tail end of my time here in California, but that's okay. It's better late than never. I really wanted to spend some time with Holls before I move. Finally, Courtney and I were able to just sit back and enjoy one of our close friends, together. We haven't done this since 2012. It's been 7 years.
How crazy is that! It's amazing that life can really just consume us, but give us the chance to pick up right where we left off. I hope that's what it's like when I move. Finally, FINALLY, it feels so good to be able to see the end of this map that i've been following. I'm almost there. What happens next? Well, i'm about to find out. I got the music in me, and i'm not about to let go.
