I have been in Seattle for the past two 1/2 weeks now. It has been quite the trip. I never expected to be able to stay for that long. It’s been great, as I have been able to spend lots of time with Natilee and see many of my old friends. In a way, it also makes me realize how nomadic my lifestyle has been these past couple of years. I moved to Seattle almost exactly a year ago. Since then, I have started my job at WONGDOODY, moved to Los Angeles, and now I am back in Seattle. Living out of a bag again. Just like I did when first moving here a year ago. Sleeping on Elisa’s (who I had never met before) floor and starting the mario blog. A year has passed since then. Fortunately, I am not sleeping on any floor anymore (for the record, I just had my mattress on Elisa’s floor.)
Still, it’s amazing. A year ago, I didn’t know anyone in Seattle. Nor did anyone know me. Now, I am back to visit my friends and Natilee, who I seem to have known for a long time. But really, it’s only been a year. For that, I consider myself to be the luckiest person in the world. It’s awesome to look forward and imagine what the next 10 years will bring along.
Things in life change much faster than one thinks. Sometimes that’s good and sometimes bad. Regardless, it’s a fast ride.
