I’ve realized that living in Colorado Springs has it’s perks, but I’m incredibly lonely and I feel isolated. While I’ve been practicing driving, I’m not sure I can conquer that right now and drive myself around. I mostly rely on my parent to take me places.
While I was a different kind of lonely in Boulder (didn’t enjoy the interaction in my job, had a not-sociable roommate) I’m thinking of moving back up there for that independence. Boulder is great because the bus can take you anywhere you want to go, and also picks up from close-by where you are. Also, even though most of my friends from college have moved on with their lives/live other places/are married/have kids, for some reason I find comfort in moving back up there.
I’ve also applied for a few jobs up there (and if you have any recommendations, let me know by email!). My experience is within the ski industry, and since I had this life-altering accident while skiing, I’m not sure that I can physically do the same things that I used to. Today I applied for a job totally outside the ski realm, and that got me thinking “Maybe this is a better fit for me.”
That’s hard, mostly because my experience and knowledge are within that industry. I would like to stick in the outdoor industry though, so maybe I need to look beyond just skiing.
I’m lucky enough to own a place up in Boulder, and the last roommate I found on Craigslist wasn’t suitable. If you or anyone you know would like to live in an awesome place with me in Boulder, starting in May or June, please let me know!
