Sooner or later you sleep in your own space

Tonight is my first night in my new apartment. I am excited and relieved to finally be moved. Mostly moved. But it is also weird. I moved into my last apartment two years ago, a week after starting law school. (Not a good time to move, if you are considering it). I moved because I had been living with my (ex) boyfriend and he lost control more than usual one day and started throwing furniture. I signed a lease of my own the next day, but he started virtually living at my new apartment the day I moved in. So even though I haven't spoken to him in over a year, that apartment was a constant reminder of him. So I am very glad to finally be in my own space. And I am very pleased with the space I chose. I remember last fall feeling completely lost having to make decisions without anyone to discuss them with, but it was actually a relief to find this apartment without having to take anyone else's demands into consideration. It makes me feel really good about the year ahead. I am accepting a permanent job without having to discuss it with anyone. I am going to apply for clerkships with only myself to worry about. I can do anything I want to, and at last I am enjoying my freedom.
