Coming Back

As I begin to settle back into life in Columbus, I find myself not really wanting to adjust. I find that Thursday nights at Fountain City, Country's Barbecue, Barnes & Noble, and Dinglewood just aren't cutting it. Driving is a bore and CSU (which never held much charm in the first place) is even less appealing than before. There is no hustle or bustle here and walking anywhere with an actual purpose is close to impossible.

I'm not complaining. OK. Yes, I am. But, I am going to do something about it. I have started applications to UT-Austin, UNC-Chapel Hill, USC, and UGA. I have set my eye on Spring semester and while I am prepared for it to not happen until Fall semester, I am pushing for a deadline that happens in the very near future. I am not saying that I am completely unhappy. There are some really wonderful things here in Columbus and I am so glad that I get to call it home. I just know that this is all temporary. I know that the time is drawing near when I fly from the safe haven of home and the little bubble that we call Columbus and find something new and exciting to explore.

More thoughts to come...
