Staying Put (And Loving It!)

So, yeah, my job is still soul-sucking and terrible, but in the last week or two, I have been trying really hard to have fun outside of work. It's a strange, yet freeing, feeling resigning myself to knowing I won't be joining the Foreign Service in the next 6 months, likely longer. My feeling about being here suddenly switched from biding my time and waiting to waiting, but living here as well. And in this short time, I've been having a blast! It's great what a little outward adjustment of your attitude can do to your inner thoughts and feelings. I genuinely hope this is an indicator of my time left in Austin. I love this place!
