Getting Accustomed to a New City

Have you ever moved to a new city where you didn’t know where anything was? How’d you feel? How’d you cope?


I admit to feeling really lost around here. I want to meet people and learn my way around, but that’s honestly easier said than done. I’m not sure why I feel this way other than I don’t know where to go. It’s as if I’m trapped and highly dependent on my GPS. Then I also wonder where people are meeting up with one another at.


It’s not that I don’t go out of the house either. Although I’m a WAHM I still like getting out and about. I’ve even been looking for part time jobs to get me out of the house. This studio apartment is too small not to get out some each day. I just am not finding anything I really am interested in, especially since I don’t like standing 8 hours a day on bad knees. The other thing I’m trying to do is set up mystery shopping and writing work. At least then I can get out of the house more… even if it’s only to a coffee shop or something. Of course, I’ve also been trying to do volunteer work, but that takes time to get set up.


If you’ve ever found yourself feeling this way or you live in Philly and have some advice, help a sister out please…
