When all of the pieces fall into place....

It's crazy to me that less than a month ago, my world was turned completely upside down and seemingly inside out.

Once I found out that I could keep my job, and that my apartment was still available to be mine, I felt my world right itself some. I didn't feel like I had lost all sense of balance then. Knowing that my roommate and friend was leaving was still a big bummer to me, and I knew I had to undergo the task of finding someone suitable to live with.

So, to Craigslist I went. This would be the first time I was looking for someone to move in with me--all of the other times I've used it, it has been to find a place to move into. It was a little different being on this end of things. Luckily it only took 3 people (who actually showed up) before I found the person that I wanted to move in. It's kind of crazy how you can read someone's personality over emails, and you just kind of get that feeling of "I like them." Well, with roommate choice #3, that's how it was. She seemed happy, down to earth and just plain nice in her emails, and when I met her it was exactly the same. And she loved Cooper, so that was one for the win column. So I offered it to her. She had a few other places to look at over the weekend and said she'd let me know on Monday.

Apparently Cooper and I are quite the package because it only took her until Saturday afternoon to write and say that she had been thinking about it, and was really excited about my place, me, and Cooper. And that if the offer was still there, she wanted to move in.

So, three weeks later, I now have my job, a place to live, and someone who seems pretty cool to live with. And it's quite funny how things seem to fall into place when you're concentrating on all of the other things in your life....and once those get in balance, how nicely and smoothly the rest of the pieces fit into place. It feels like the bad time was a long time ago, even though it really wasn't. Sure, I still have moments where I get sad about one thing or another, but overall, I'm in a really happy place.

A couple of people I know have said to me, on separate occasions: "Jenn, this is your year. I feel it" and I really, truly 100% believe that there is truth in that. I'm a strong person, with a good head on her shoulders, and a moral compass that points me in the directions that I need to go.  I'm ready for my year and what's to come!




Happy Monday!

  6. Hi! Thanks for visiting :) Your blog is so cute, I'm definitely a follower now!

    And I feel like we would get along very well because I was in a long distance relationship for a while where I was engaged to him for a year, too but it definitely didn't work out and my life is going down a much better path now. I'm looking forward to reading your blog!!
