i cannot wait to move back to nashville.

plain and simple.
i’ve wanted to do this for a bit, i’m kinda nervous about it, but nashville feels like home to me. hillsboro road is my sanctuary. centennial park is my study hall and stress relief. 1st avenue and the shelby street bridge are my favorite places and i love the park up on second avenue near the courthouse. i love strolling around broadway people watching and driving around downtown when i’m stressed. i have my ‘thinking place’ on the other side of the river by the titans stadium where countless big decisions have been made and contemplated and i have my places i drive to late at night. i have my job their. whole foods is there. there are famous people there full of many styles of music, especially my favorite (country) and it makes me feel at home. country music makes me feel at home. maybe it’s because it has such a huge role in the roots of where i came from and who my family is today, i don’t know, but it makes me feel at home. real country music, not some of the crap claimed to be country today like Gretchen Wilson.
nashville is my home. its where i’ve made and lost some of my best friends. its where i’ve loved and lost. it’s where my grandfather’s life has been built. it’s where i’ve met the greatest man i’ve ever loved. it’s where i’ve found and lost myself only to find myself again. it’s where i’ve cried so hard i thought i had no more tears and laughed so hard i thought i was going to have an asthma attack. it’s where i’ve discovered my passions and become more ‘me.’
but it’s only a place. i recognize this, but i love it. i love the city atmosphere, i love the buildings, i love the parks, i love most of the people, and i love pretty much everything about it. but it is still only a place, i realize this and many of the people i have loved in it have since moved on to other places, but it still has a hold on me, and i want to live in the city again. i want to live near it again. it makes me feel alive. sitting in a coffee shop on 12th or at Fido makes me feel alive and creative and like i will do great things. i know that may sound lame, but it is true. and if you know me, you understand. if you don’t know me, maybe we should get to know each other over coffee on 12th, gelato at whole foods, or an izzie at zoe’s.
i love it. i will live there again come august. but i need a roommate. so if you know someone, a girl, please let me know. but for now, this is my nashville blog. it is my home. my home is with my family, but hendersonville does not feel like home anymore, it has changed far too much, nashville is my home. specifically the green hills/west end/belmont/hillsboro area.

anxious about the summer/need a roommate

this summer is going to be interesting. the job situation is a leap of faith so pray that it goes well for me and that the financial part of it works out. then comes the fall. i’m moving to nashville. i wasn’t sure it was going to work at first or if dad would be up for it, but it’s the plan.

i’ve found a great place, 15 min max from work backways and just off of 440 on the residential side of west end right behind MBA but i don’t have a roommate. i met this girl today who i think we could be great roommates but she’s renting out her house (which was also very nice) over closer to belmont, but i’m still so attached to this apartment over off of west end that i dont know what to do. its nestled behind in some greenery, it’s spacious (for what i need) and safe and has a pool. and rent is AMAZING for the area, just the lack of roommate thing is holding me back from it. if you know of anyone, let me know. please please please.
i get my doubts about this job because of its low pay and the fact that it’s now interfering with the camp i want/am going to volunteer at in july. originally i was going to guatemala next week, but that got cancelled along with my other two mission trips. bummer. but i know God has something else in store for me, just the summer has gotten all jumbled numerous times.
what’s stressing me out right now is finding a roommate for this place on west end. i LOVE this place and i really want a good roommate.
i’m nervous to move to nashville but it feels like home to me. i’m just anxious right now to get it all figured out. i also am rambly and want to write more but sitting here in Whole Foods i realize i have to be at work in….10 minutes so i will leave this as too be continued, but if you know of anyone looking or if you are looking, i have pictures!!
