Ohai . FORM LETTER FOLLOWS: For five-plus years I have not added friends and I know I will regret changing course for all the reasons I've given in the past, but here goes: welcome. Of the 160 pending requests I had as of 24 July, I'm going to add a few. People who are still around (or are sentimental old-time favorites), who I like, or at least don't irritate me *too* much. ;-) PLEASE do not inundate me with messages or I will start ignoring all but my original friends. (I don't know how to type, which makes it worse.) There aren't enough hours in the day and by now I think I owe time.
Job changes are difficult enough. Throw in possibly having to move and it really gets tough. I know you've got lots of memories in the apartment as well. It's nice that you have plenty of time to consider your options but the downside to that is you have an entire year where it will all remain unknown and thus be fuel for worry. Sigh... It sounds like a good time to curl up with your kittehs.
I get it. Change sucks far too often and it's never comfy. I've always taken comfort in the belief that there's a good plan for my life but every so often I come to a fork in the road and I get a bit scared not knowing what's ahead. I have no idea what the other paths would have brought me but I've always been okay with the choices I made(a few scars, bumps and bruises though). I'm sure you'll do fine.
