I've been in my new house and new neighborhood for just under 20 days and I'm still afraid to go out and venture the area on my own cause I dont know the neighborhood streets or how the buses operate here (stop times, route, etc). Ive been looking online for people in the area around my age and so far I've had little to no luck. I've seen maybe less than 20 young people total in this whole area and thats only when out shopping or at restaurants or something. The rest are all 50 and over.
Because I still havent been able to develop an understanding of the surrounding neighborhood, I haven't been able to go on as many runs either (missed about 10 days worth of runs since moving) and thats put a real damper on my mood as well.
I also still have no desire to look for a new job in this area because its just not developed enough for my liking. But I know the grocery store here is hiring.
The only positive that has come from this move is I've taken the time to develop an internet in learning how to cook, but that requires going to the grocery store like 3 times a week to get ingredients for the dishes I want to make and I can only do that when my parents drive me there because I dont know the bus schedules yet. I only know theres like 4 bus stops between my house and the store
It also just really fucking blows being 2 hrs away from my friends and extended family so I dont know when I'll ever see them again. Especially cause of the pandemic.
Life sucks right now.
