I am a 23 year old teacher, stuck in a interesting place between adulthood and adolescence. In August I moved to a small town, 5 hours away from college, and 4 hours away from "home". I moved here knowing I would be starting with a new start. I did not realize it would be difficult, unlike college, to meet people. I teach high school math, so daily I am surrounded by teenagers, and my co-workers, most of whom are veteran teachers, are old enough to be my own parents. I am stuck in an interesting place where I can't find any people that have a similar lifestyle or interests. I am not single, but my boyfriend lives 3.5 hours away. So most of my time is spent doing things "solo". When I was in college this was fine, because within 20 minutes I could be surrounded by friends. I am 5 hours away from any friends or family. I feel entirely alone and don't know who to turn for something as simple as a hug when I need one.
