March's month's theme seems to be newness: in many different aspects in my life.
Barely done into the first quarter of 2016, and I've got a new home with my family--what I feel is our first proper home here in the United States. Finally, each of us has our own space. Apartment living was cozy and we all had to interact and spend some family time, but it's nice to have our alone-time and me-space that we need.
The town we moved to is, in my opinion, the best of both worlds. It's urban enough that everything we need is still an arm's reach away, an hour away from the hubbub of The City, while still being a little bit of suburbia, and everyone has their own breathing room. The suburban feeling is something I enjoy whenever we visit relatives in West Virginia, because the Tri-State can be so claustrophobic at times.
My brother celebrated his birthday in our new home, and it was the first full day we spent there. It was refreshing, and I hope he agrees.
Also new: relationships. There are some people in my life that I've been acquainted with for a while, some more intimately than others. This March, things became official, and I have a very good feeling about it all. Sometimes, you just know, you know?
Overall, I'm feeling refreshed (despite being hit by a bout of flu and sore throat last week + currently). I still have a ways to go before I officially feel settled into my new space. I'm taking my time, since I have no plans to go anywhere. I'm planting my roots.
There is still some anxiousness about this new thing called Home Ownership, I'm not going to deny or lie about it, but I'm also eager to be proven wrong and just fall into cadence with it all. Everything will have its place soon, in my room and in my life. And I can't wait to see it all come together slowly, and then all at once. :)
