The Good Thing About Settling

As a young man I have a bit of fire in my gut, fire about working my way up in the world, fire about finding my niche and my permanent corner and fire about relationships.

This fact has become evident to me acutely in the last few weeks as I’ve been looking for a place to live, finding new job opportunities and getting out in the dating world.

This stuff is all difficult for me recovering...
