Where do I belong?

I ask myself this question quite a bit - where do I belong?  I feel like I'm constantly wandering the desert trying to figure this out.  Some days I feel like I belong in Africa.  Other days, I feel like I belong in Austin.  Yet other times, it's either San Diego or Atlanta.  A few things I have figured out the past few months:  1) I doubt I'll ever go back to the northeast.  After having been out with a couple of New Yorkers; they are too high strung for me.  Austin has definitely taught me to slow down and calm down.  2) I don't think I want to own a house.  Don't get me wrong, I love my house and it's been a great investment, but I'm tired of doing "house" things.  I rather be with people and hang out with people.  3) While I could easily work for the federal government in Atlanta or DC, I'm not sure I'm ready to deal with bureaucracy again.

This trip to San Diego has been rather interesting.  I love how friendly everybody is.  Austin used to be that way, but I feel that over the eight years I have been there, it's become a bit more vain.  And I can't complain about the San Diego weather either.  At the same time, I'm not ready to let go.  I know I have about a year left to go with my degree, so I don't need to make any rash decisions.  I'm hoping God will clarify soon where I belong.
