My Problems, Listed

Initially, I thought my problems would look more manageable if I made a list of them. Instead they just look more numerous.
  1. My present lease ends around Christmas and I don’t know where I’m living after that.
  2. Though I would want to move into Kristen’s house, her exiting roommate won’t be fully moved out until late January.
  3. No matter where I live, I may only be living there for a short time, both because I am tired of living in Santa Barbara and because I want to travel to Australia, New Zealand and Fiji this winter.
  4. I have not set a departure date.
  5. I have not set a return date.
  6. I don’t know how long I will be traveling, if I go.
  7. Currently, I have no one to travel with in these locations.
  8. Excluding Hollister, I will have nowhere to move back to when I return to the United States.
  9. I’d like to move to a different city on my own, but the thought of that is very intimidating.
  10. If I move back to Santa Barbara, I will be wishing I had moved anywhere else. However, this scenario solves one problem — easily the biggest: no matter how and when I leave Santa Barbara, I will be ending the best relationship I’ve ever been in.
Anyone? Anyone?

    I was informed this evening that I've succeeded in chasing my roommate out of the apartment she's lived in alone for five years.

    Move to Boston? (I'm fun to live with, I swear)

  2. Aside from the Australia yearning and the fantastic relationship, you have neatly summarized the problems I am facing in the next month or so. As I have no real clue what to do, I can only offer you sympathy.

    Never thought I'd so this to someone, but next time I pray for clarity, I'll ask for some for you as well.
