I decided to start watching the Hills again on Netflix. It's such a great show! I mean not actually a GOOD show, but it's great if you just want to have noise on in the background while you do something else.
I couldn't remember what year it came out so of course I googled it because google has all the answers, right?
It came out in 2006. I thought about it for a second and that was SEVEN years ago. 7.
How is that even possible??
Life has taken such crazy twists and turns in the past seven years.
Seven years ago I:
Was still living on Cape Cod
I was miserable and wanted to go home
I was applying and interviewing for a job I would get that would take me home
I would stay at that job for 5 years
During that 5 years I:
Met knew friends and lost old ones
Watched friend's and family's lives change
Decided I was ready for a change
Applied for a job in South Carolina
Adopted two dogs
Found where I think I'm supposed to live for a very long time
I've officially lived in South Carolina longer than I have anywhere else other than Virginia! (Which of course SC has to compete with 28 years? Something like that? I can't add, haha)
It's just so crazy how when you're in it, life seems to be moving at a glacial pace and the things you want to badly seem so out of reach. Then you blink and look back and everything is so different. And those things you thought never you'd get, are yours. Of course things are exactly like you might have imagined, in fact they are so much better than any day dream you could have dreamed.
It doesn't mean you have everything you want or that life is perfect. But, it's pretty great. And you're very thankful for everything you have in it.
So see what the Hills can do? Spark thoughts like that ;)
Happy Almost Friday!
