It’s always hard to move away. I have lived in my current location on the East Coast for three years now, and I am planning on moving to California.
These photos were taken with my two ballet friends, as one of our final get togethers before I move away.
Something I have really learned about moving, is that it’s not bad leaving friends behind. Though many people may think it devastating, I find it interesting that I can have friends in so many different places. It may be hard leaving, but exploring new places, and trying new things I find can be way more exciting than staying in one area your whole life.
I have lived in San Francisco, San Mateo, Los Angeles, and New Jersey, and I really do think that living in different places is one of the best things that ever happen to me. Different customs of new areas is amazing to experience. Although it can be hard to figure out how people in different towns and states see the world, you find yourself in awe of what people have to offer.
I am very lucky to experience these things. In the area that I live in, there are “Blue Laws” where businesses are closed on Sundays in order to acknowledge the Sabbath. Although I am religious, but not Jewish, it is really great for me to see the strong faith of the people in my town. I also have learned that dance and theater plays a big role in New Jersey. There are so many talented people I have met over the years.
Although I was hesitant to move to New Jersey, I now know that through my experience, and keeping an open mind, you will truly be blessed, and surprised at the opportunities than come your way.
