Chapter 3

11 May

I honestly thought there’s going to be more chapters but it turns out that i can fit everything in just 3. I guess there are 3 things that influenced my life a lot – mom leaving, Bobby and what I’m going to tell you about now. They’re all turning points in my life. About a year ago my mom and my dad got divorced which was something completely normal, all things considered. I mean, having a long-distance relationship is not for everyone and that is what they were having. He lives here, in Sofia, she lives in Dubai and things were just not working out, so they split up. Naturally, my mom wants to have her own place so that when she comes back from Dubai for a vacation she would have a place to stay. Rally and I, on the other hand, want to move out and live on our own. Mom will be helping with the rent, of course, because we’re still studying (I’m 3rd year in the university but about that later), so we can’t have a full-time job and pay our own bills. We’re planning on living with two more friends, so it would be Rally, Geri, Vanya and me. 🙂 Sounds like a lot of fun, doesn’t it? We’re still searching for a place, so keep your fingers crossed.

The problem with the whole moving out thing is how Maria and my dad are taking it. They’re acting as if we’re kicking them out which is completely not true. I mean, is it so hard to understand that we were supposed to have left home a long time ago. It’s only natural that after a certain age, kids want to be separated from their parents. Not to mention that we’re totally different generations and we have completely different lifestyles. For example, we are young and we want to have our friends sleeping over, we want to have a party every now and then, we want to have at least 4 girlfriends at our house every day etc. Whereas, my father is past all that and he now wants a simple and quiet life. He likes all of our friends and they like him, but sometimes I can see that he needs some peace and quiet and he’s tired of always having so many people around. So, we had a conversation about us moving out about 2 weeks ago and it wasn’t my favorite topic to be honest. He is definitely hurt that we’re leaving but I think he started dealing with it. And he has to, because at the end of the day, it’s nothing personal with him. This is the way it’s supposed to be, isn’t it?
