There are 4 babies that I know of and am excited to come into the world this year. 3 of them are super close to my heart and I can’t wait to meet when I go back to the hometown for christmas. One may or may not be there yet when I get there, but will hopefully greet everyone around that time. I have so many plans for baby presents and crafts to make for the new mamas. (Two first children and a second). I have so many plans for all of the trips and places I want to be to soak in the happy of these new families.
And though I am bursting with excitement for these new little bundles of joy for these families… they also make me a bit lonely. The friend closest to me who also does not want to procreate lives 1000+ miles away. I live 800+ miles from the friends who can. Making friends as an adult blows.
Next semester I have real life classes and real life people in them. Part of that is making me excited to extend myself out into the real world a bit more. I start a new job tomorrow. My contract job has come to an end and I really hope the new postion will be a good starting point for a real career that I enjoy.
