Lifting my recently-planted SF roots at the end of October and heading south for a bit, behind the curtain, back to Orange County. The best thing to do is start new hobbies, things picked up during my stay in the city. Falling back into old habits shows no growth.
Looking forward to it? No.
Is the change necessary? Yes.
Not sure if you can call it "change" having only been away for 3 years. It will be a temporary move, and 4 months really isn't that long. A breath of fresh air, with time to reflect. Once that is through, the world will once again be my oyster.
