They sent me to Binghamton

I've always wanted to be on the east coast, and the universe responded…by sending me to Binghamton, NY. Oh you've never heard of it? Neither had I, but I do so love adventures and that's how I choose to view this. Let the adventures begin!

Every little thing, is gonna be alright

I am a worrier. I especially tend to worry about things way in the future that I have no business even thinking about. To give you an example, my sophomore year in high school I was telling my mom about how worried I was about not being able to find a job after college. Yeah…

Since moving to Binghamton though I’ve done a pretty good job of not worrying so much about not knowing what the future brings, or where I’m going to be by the end of summer, or not having a plan of some sorts. I’ve just had this feeling of rightness since moving here and have been cruising on zen control for the past few months. But you know, you can’t really just turn the switch off on your nature and unfortunately it is in my nature to worry about the unknown. Some are afraid of change. Others are afraid of the future. I, on the other hand, am extremely afraid of the unknown. I’m ok with plans changing, my life drastically changing, the future not ending up as I originally thought it would…that’s all gravy. But when I don’t know what’s going to happen?

I just really hate not knowing things because then I can’t plan accordingly. I can’t figure out what to do or what I should do or even what I want to do. The worst is when I don’t know what I want because then it’s like, wow, I have no idea where to go from there. Luckily, I do know what I want right now. I want to stay on the east coast, preferably exactly where I am at the moment. Yes, that’s right, folks. I actually want to stay in Binghamton. My heart isn’t completely set on Binghamton (it is set on the east coast though) but that would be my preference.

So as much as I’ve loved being in zen lala land I think it’s time I actually do something about my situation. I fully understand that it’s possible my plans will fall apart and things are going to happen the way they’re going to happen, but I’m a firm believer in going after what you want.

The universe did its thing by getting me out here. Now it’s my turn to figure out how to stay.

But I also need to remember not to needlessly worry in the process…

When I first started this blog, life had just thrown me a curveball by sending me to the middle of nowhere in upstate New York right smack in the middle of winter from my hometown in sunny, southern California. I had no idea what to expect, how long I would stay, or even where my life was heading. All I knew was that there were a great many adventures to be had after they sent me to Binghamton.
