I have recently moved about 900km from home. The last couple of weeks have been the first time that I've started to feel comfortable. I've been her for about 7 weeks, so I feel I'm not doing so bad.
I went from being excited, to being terrified, a tad depressed, overwhelmed and wondering what the hell I was thinking, back to being in control and pretty happy today. The biggest thing for me is not have the dogs with me at the moment (counting down until I get them at the end of March).
The move also coincided with a great job opportunity and my first job in my chosen field. So although there is a lot of excitement surrounded the job, it was also a culture shock for me and a new job is always stressful.
I feel like I could do without another move for a while. Traditionally I've been one to stay in towns and in jobs for as long as possible.
