I'm finally in the bay! I've settled six hours north of home and so far, so good.
Yesterday was my first night alone here. I had my moments, but I'm still here. Having my boyfriend help me through this and hanging out with my best friend during the weekend majorly helped me feel more stable. I'm lucky to have them in my life. I don't think I could have done it myself. Well, perhaps. But it would've felt something like trudging through lakes of molten lava in hell.
Now, to tackle my PhD.
