I’ve been having lots of different emotions these last couple of days. We sold our house—and I’m happy about it, but I’m also really sad about it. I’m happy because selling our house in a matter of two months is a really big accomplishment. We were able to make a teeny tiny bit of profit even though we’ve only been living there for a little over a year. And we were able to move our life to Indiana fully and finally start our adventure here. But I’m sad because I loved that house. I have tons of memories and life changing events that happened in that house. And I’m also scared for our future in Indiana a little bit.
This is big news! It’s really exciting, it’s really scary, and it's going to be a really big change. But we are so pumped for this. I mentioned in my 2019 post that we would have some exciting changes to announce and this was one of them. If you’ve been reading my blog for the past year or so, you’ll know that firstly I haven’t been posting like AT. ALL. Secondly, that I haven’t been happy lately. And finally, that I constantly say “I hate my job.” Well this is us taking steps to fix these problems.
For anyone who knows my story, you'll know that I live states away from my family. They live in Indiana, I live in Kansas--that's about a nine hour drive! So, we don't get to see each other too much. I've only lived in Kansas for a year now and have saved up enough PTO at work to take quite a few trips home, but it's nothing compared to how much time I used to spend with them before. That's why keeping in touch via other means is soooo important.
The book was nominated for the 2015 Goodreads Choice Award for Young Adult Fiction. And I really wish that I had read it sooner. I rated this book a 4 out of 5 stars, and would definitely recommend this to all young adult readers. The month of February was when I truly just flew through books, and this was another one of those that I read in one sitting. I'm on a roll with one sitting books--like, this one, and this one, and this one.
