We got moved into the apartment we had randomly chosen from Google Maps (luckily not too bad a choice) in just a few hours because the altitude hadn't started to affect us yet. After a month of sightseeing, I got a job, Aaron got a job, and we thought we were settled in.
For me, it actually took a long time to convince myself that I liked it here. I was still in love with Iowa City, and still am for that matter, so it was hard for anywhere else to compare. It's beautiful in Colorado, no one can deny that, but it wasn't home.
Now, several months later, Aaron and I have purchased our first house together, and I don't need a map to find the grocery store, so I feel like we can actually make it here. Unfortunately, I was laid off at my job, so I'm back on the hunt which makes feeling content hard. We have more company now, though. Some of our friends from Iowa moved in with us, so it feels nice not to be lonely and we don't spend our nights staring at each other anymore. We also adopted two dogs in the span of about a month, so with 2 cats, 2 dogs, our friends' dog, and the 4 of us, we have a full house!
When I'm not applying to jobs or reviving a blog, I can go explore Colorado Springs and all that Mother Nature has to offer. Can't wait for summer - wish it was warmer!
