Alright. I'm itching to go somewhere new and exciting. I always just pretend I've moved on from my life in Spain. But we all know I haven't. There I said it! I'm in denial that I'm back here.

After looking through travel themed boards on Pinterest, my travel itch has returned. I just want to go somewhere- anywhere- I've never been. I hope things in KC work out for me because I've been daydreaming about a new life there, from what Andrew has described to me. I was telling my co-worker today my life story and theory about living different places.

My whole life I had always dreamed of living in the cities, where I'm from. And that was that. I'd live there forever... Until I went to Spain and Germany and fell in love there. Now that I've been back, I want to live everywhere for at least a short amount of time. Of course I can always end up back in the cities eventually. That would be just dandy actually. But while I'm young with no kids, a home, etc. I want to live wherever I can! So let's all cross our fingers that going to grad school in KC works out, because it will be a new, fresh adventure for me!

We're all so used to being stuck in our comfort zones. It's what we know, we can't change it. I totally get that. I'm a very stubborn person and I usually don't like change either! But once you've become acclimated to the setting and environment around you, you can learn so much about yourself and the people around you! My favorite parts of being in Spain were getting lost for hours on end because it helped me get to know the city so much more than I would've if I had stayed within my familiar boundaries.

If you get a chance or an opportunity to move somewhere new, and there's nothing holding back but your fear of new places- GO. DO IT. Otherwise you may never know what you've been missing...
