I have no idea whether living alone will be awesome, completely devastating, or somewhere in between.
To prepare against devastation, I'm planning to explore a bunch of hobbies. I've been surviving school, job searches, missionary work, and failed relationships for a decade, and I would like to have fun again. I have a job with a salary, in my field. It's not perfect, but it's a good place to be. So I now commit to work only 40 hours a week and make sure I do things I enjoy with some of the free time I'll create. I'll do some things with other people and some things alone. And I plan to use my blog to share what I learn.
I want it to be a mix of comfortable time with myself, and also a great way to connect with others. One way of connecting is online, so I'd love to receive comments, ideas, questions collaborations, or assistance!
I still have a while to decide what my hobby for May will be. But the current plan is Making Sushi. =)
