Adjusting back to life here was exciting and easier than I imagined. I was excited to get an apartment where I could cook and do laundry. Also, where I could have a separate bedroom. I was excited to take a real shower, as opposed to my shower in Seoul where my entire bathroom floor would get soaked by water. I was excited to get in a car and go, and not rely solely on public transportation. In Seoul it always took 30-90 minutes to get where I wanted to go. Now, I can just hop in my car and be to Seattle in 15 minutes or to my work in 10 minutes. It's a great feeling.
It was nice having my dad here the first week that I lived here. I don't think I would have been able to adjust as easily. I will admit, since he left, it's been pretty lonely here. I am usually pretty proactive about making friends, but it's been difficult. I'm living in a suburb of Seattle, and it's very family oriented. I didn't know anyone prior to moving here, and I'm worried that I'm not going to make a group of friends. I know what you're thinking, "get out there and make some friends!" But let's be realistic, it's easier said than done. I'm sure as time goes by, and as I get more comfortable with my surroundings, I'll make friends easily.
I guess life is good if my only complaint is that I need more friends.
