I'm not one to make decisions on the fly or change my life on a whim. I don't view my life in the big picture and will stay with what's comfortable at the cost of my own happiness rather than rock the boat. Case & point: When I first moved to Pennsylvania, I knew within a week that grad school wasn't for me, but I stayed because I was afraid to break my lease. Stupid, I know. Luckily, I made the best of my situation, but looking back, I didn't put my best interests first and, by staying, I made things much tougher than they had to be.
That mentality completely changed recently when I fell in love with the sweetest boy, quit my job and decided to move back to Connecticut.
