Back in Atlanta

Lisa and I are back in Atlanta for Thanksgiving.  I'm also here to go into the GameTap office for a few days and do my monthly Reserve duty.  It's definitely weird being here.  I've been gone for ten weeks now.  This place both feels like home and doesn't at the same time.  I recognize the locales and people, even have two jobs here, but I don't "belong" anymore.  It's not a bad feeling, I just have a home somewhere else.  

Despite having grown up in a military family (moving every 2-3 years, all over the world), I rarely ever visited the places that I used to live.  Since I consider Atlanta to be the only place I've lived in my adult life, this feels like the first time I've ever visited somewhere from my past.

I look forward to work tomorrow and seeing all the familiar faces of my coworkers and friends!  It's been far too long since we hung out, shared some grub, and played video games.  

How often do you visit somewhere you used to live?  How does it make you feel?


  1. I was in LA for 9 years post-college and when I went back to visit having been in Atlanta for a year, it was definitely surreal. Kept wanting to drive home to my old apartment at the end of the day. :)

  2. Good to see you back in the ATL. Maybe I can grab lunch with you guys at work next week before you take off again.
