I am turning over a whole new leaf. Patiently waiting for my new job to begin in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. There are some firsts: I am renting a room from someone; so, I’m living in someone else’s home (something I haven’t done since I left my mother’s house many many years ago). It is a strange feeling – not to be able to do what I want, when I want. There is another housemate, a much younger guy, whom I hardly ever see. But, I also have to share a bathroom – and I have to think about the other people in the house as far as cleaning, cooking, etc. This is very new for me, and feels totally awkward. Transitions – tell me about your transitions, big or small.
