In one of my last post, I wrote how I had been away from the blog for a little while. I also thought I would get myself back in the swing of things. I however forgot the fact oh I had a lot of things to take care of with my move to downtown Stuttgart. This meant we had to say goodbye to the Leonberg house, which is above. Not to mention slowly getting myself into the proper mindset of starting a new life. The life of actually for the first time in about five years of living on my own. In some ways the time had some. However I wish it hadn’t had to come in such a surprising way.
As I mentioned before, I always thought I would have another year with my parents but alas, that wasn’t the case. My mom, stepdad and Jada flew out on Sunday, the 7th of July. To say that I was sad, would be a complete understatement. The bond between my mom and I is a pretty strong one. Having a parent who is also your best-friend in some ways is different, but if I needed something, or if she needed something. We each knew the other would be there to help. Not to mention, I didn’t grow up with my mom. This was a redo in some ways. OK, is it odd for a 30 year, well, I was 25 or 26 at that point, to stay with his parents? For me yes, but nowadays, it does happen a little bit more. Now we are each far apart from each other. The good thing is the fact we can call each other if I have a question. Mainly its my questions, my mother is back in the states now. Definitely not like being here needing help with certain things.
Now the bright side of things that are going on with me. I live downtown in pretty awesome city in Germany! I am really enjoying things here. I have never lived somewhere so far like this. I can walk out of my door and go and find various things in a short amount of time. I can go and see friends who live downtown within a 10-15 minute walk. I have about 10 or more restaurants near me, that are a 5 minute walk. Not to mention my train stop is pretty much outside of my door. If I’m running late, I should always be OK.
I have to say, this is pretty sweet! I however have to make myself stay in a little bit more in the coming months. The good with living downtown, is also the bad with living downtown. You have the ability to be close to so many cool things. It makes you want to go out and explore. This means you end up spending more money than you actually should. I do know one thing, once I get everything together, life will continue to be awesome.
Well, after the last few months of travel and getting myself sorted, I hope to be back writing more often. I have great pictures and stories to tell. Look out for all of the interesting things to come. Enjoy!
