This weekend started with a bang. Not literally.
After careful thought and consideration, I have decided to stay in the US. I think I made this decision months ago, but after being here for a week it was pretty rock solid. My reasons are shallow and deep and I will miss Jordan. I already do but I just know that right now I need to be in the US.
That being said.
I have good news! Ever since I made this epic decision, I have been applying for jobs like a mad woman! I am no good sitting at home, no good at all.
My hard work has paid off! I have gotten a job with my old company that I worked for before I left the states. For my full-time job, I will be educating the community about Alcohol, drugs and tobacco. I am a certified substance abuse prevention specialist after all! I’m excited to go back to my old job with new skills and a new outlook on things. I think it will be a completely different experience this time around.
My job is out of state, I will be moving back to my old stomping grounds in Corn Land. Scandalous! A Muslim, Arab girl living alone!??! who would have thunk! Oh the scandal I shall cause! Again!
Here is the kicker.
My family trusts me to make the right decision. They don’t agree but they will support me because I’m stubborn in a I-know-what-is-best-for-me way. Not a bad thing, but also not a good thing.
So, this coming week I shall be heading to corn land to find an apartment…I love apartment hunting, I usually find some awesome places to live (If I do say so myself). I just hate the moving. My mom and I have become experts at moving, though. In the 2 and half year period after college, I moved to 5 different places. A LOT of moving!
