The Trouble with Traveling

By | October 6, 2009

Here’s the thing: I love to travel. But traveling implies being away from home, which further implies that when you’re done, you’ll go back home. But what if you travel so much that you don’t have a home? Where does that leave you? With no place to go “back” to.

Such is my unfortunate situation at the moment. I’m sitting at my parent’s house, wishing I had a place of my own. I haven’t been here for long, and I don’t plan to be here for long. But right now I don’t have anywhere else to go, except to other people’s houses (anyone want to be my friend?), and I don’t want to overstay my welcome.

I just want to BE somewhere for awhile, where I can spread out and feel completely comfortable, not intruding on other people’s lives, and not getting in their way. (Also I don’t want to feel like they’re getting in my way—which is often the case in this crowded house.)

So get an apartment…? It’s a possibility, but I can’t figure out where I want to be, and there is no way I could sign a year lease right now. It would be a waste of my money, because at this point I can’t see myself staying in one place for a whole year. (I know, a lot of you are laughing at me… A whole year? Whoop De Doo! But I’m not as “settled down” as you are, in case you haven’t figured that out by now.)

So go on another trip? Again, it’s a possibility, but it sure would be nice to stay in one spot for awhile and unpack my suitcase. I’ll leave again, there’s no question; I’m just not sure I’m ready to do that now.

What are my other options?

    LOL. Only, your dilemma is not a laughing matter :). Sorry you are feeling this way . . . it is unsettling. But if you are like me, your stuff is scattered in three different places and you feel like you are all over the globe. We need to talk soon again. Hope you get more of an "answer" soon. Love Ya!
