Getting Adjusted

Adjusting to Atlanta has not been as seamless as I thought it would be. I mean I use to be here so it isn't like this is a foreign city. Clubs have come and gone... new neighborhoods and restaurants have popped up... old friends have moved away or vanished from the scene... but it is still Atlanta. I was happy to move back to a city that I was familiar with but yet still new. I was happy to be near my bestfriend after so many years. I was excited about a career that brought me back sooner than I thought, more their fault than anything. I was excited about the new possibility of getting to know someone or even maybe romance that never quite happened, probably some of my fault.

Three months ago I was sitting in my apartment in the District... pretty much content with the direction of my life. I was making connections and contacts to assist me in the next steps of my career. I was in a home search... ready to finally be a homeowner. I enjoyed spending all weekend, every weekend with my friends. I really felt at that time that things were really going right. I thought I would have that here in Atlanta but it hasn't quite been that way... not bad just not GREAT!!!

But it hasn't been all bad... one of my good friends from DC just got a job transfer to Atlanta... so I will have yet another person to add to my small circle of 4 friends (not including the people I have met through my bestfriend, who have been cool but aren't quite my good running buddies). I have also met 2 other people that have been a life line to reality and sanity. Gee and Bee are two of a kind. Their backstories are so similar it is a bit unnerving. We spent this holiday weekend pretty much together, just kicking it eating out, hitting parties and bars... oh yeah and whippin they ass in spades (with the assistance of my bestfriend and partner of course) . I met Gee first a few weeks ago and through him Bee and other interesting people have come through my life (more on that later, maybe) Those three and the occasional conversation and site of Valentino have kept my spirits up and have kept me from running back to the comfort of the known back in DC.

But nothing loss... nothing gained. This is definitely going to be an experience I will never forget.
