When I moved here, I gave myself three years to decide whether or not I like it and whether or not to move on.
I've gotten good at stomaching it and I don't believe I could have done the things I've done elsewhere (or at least still be as close to home geographically). Also, in spite of the area's general vibe, I feel more developed emotionally and spiritually but most important, I am still growing.
I've met some truly amazing people and have had some heart breaking, gut wrenching, and eye opening times. That's life though... and I think I'm getting the hang of it.
If I had my choice, I would be somewhere else. But I have to do a few things first.
