I have difficulty remaining in one place for too long.
I quit college after a few weeks. I did this at two colleges at two separate times. I never graduated.
I'm a compulsive job-hopper. I have not worked for any one company for longer than a year and half. I have quit more jobs after a month than I have fingers. I prefer to quit without notice. I have held so many titles in so many fields. Remarkably, I'm doing extremely well for myself financially and I'm incredibly hire-able.
I've changed my place of residency frequently. I've never renewed a lease. I've never painted a wall, purchased expensive furniture, planted flowers, remodeled. I've lived overseas, in friends houses, apartments, homes, with my family. The second I get comfortable is when I get uncomfortable.
Between 2003 and 2009 (with six months spent overseas in the middle), I've owned four different cars. I've never owned one long enough to replace the brakes or have an annual inspection. Every car was a different color and model. Every car I've loved.
I have not sustained a relationship with a man that has lasted longer than two and half years. I've moved across the state, into another state, into another country for men. I've been dumped, I've broken up with men after proposals, I've ended things amicably. The second I get comfortable is when I get uncomfortable.
That being said, I have friends that extend back as far as elementary school. I have fostered excellent relationships with my friends and also my family.
What does all of this say about me?
I have serious commitment issues and weary feet.
