Is this real?

Is this REAL? PERMANENT? LASTING? 
I have been asking myself this a lot lately.  This chapter of life that I have been in recently has had TRANSITION written in bold above it and has made me question things I haven't before.  
You might be reading this and putting a negative connotation to it, but it is the complete opposite.

A little background... a few months ago I lost my job and it ended up being one of the best things that has ever happened to me.  With that being said, up to that point I had been an intern at two different firms since graduation and never had a full time, permanent, here to stay job.  Until now.
And now that I am at said full time job it just doesn't feel real.  I mean it should because I am enjoying what I do, love the people I work with, and have even gotten to buy a car.  There is just a part of me that is timid to settle down and make this my new, official 'work home' because I am use to it not being permanent.  But this time it is permanent, and I could even venture to say real.  And what a joy it is to get to say that!

With all that being said I'm not really sure what I am looking for out of this post.  I know that there are others out there that have been going through the same transition chapter as myself and they understand.  So this is not one of these 'am I the only one going through this post'.
Perhaps this is the end of this chapter?  No, I would just say the end of a page.
Stay tuned and we can see together what is on the next page and even upcoming chapter.

I haven't dealt with the issues of permanency in a job like that; but I struggle with it in our living situation. So often I flip between whether I should be preparing myself to pack and leave, because eventually it is inevitable or should I make it feel as much like "home" as I can and be satisfied for the time. Right now I'm happy with the permanency side of things. Living for today and ignoring the future (in a responsible way of course). I have to say, it makes life a lot easier!
