After my last move, into Brian’s house, ten minutes away, I swore I would never move again. Well, that was a lie. I am moving in approximately a week. This time not across town, but across coast! Along coast. Something.
Brian and I are moving to Garner, which is just outside of Raleigh, NC. I am excited about this change. Excited and terrified. I go back and forth between two extremes. Moving somewhere new, starting over and making new friends and finding your way in a new city and state, is fun and scary. Quitting your job without a new job lined up is inadvisable, but it’s what I’m doing. My last day at work is Friday, and my next day of work after that is up for debate. On the one hand, I enjoy having time off of work. On the other hand, I also enjoy eating. Which of these enjoyable things will be in my future the most? We shall see!

Good luck on your move! Eating is clearly more important, but I’m sure an interesting job will follow. 🙂

Thanks Leanne! I do love to eat. But I also love to sleep. And sleeping is free! And for the weak, which is what I will be, from not eating.

I know I don’t like “know you.” But, I’m super curious as to what prompted this big move.

It’s a long story, but in a nutshell: -My boyfriend of three years is getting his degree at NC State, and I thought I’d come along.
-I have lived in Boston for 5 years, and while I like Boston and have a lot of great friends there, I don’t LOVE Boston. I never thought I’d be there for this long, and have been jonesin’ to try something new for awhile now.
-I am curious about other parts of the country. Like the Southeast!
So, there you go. My myriad and random reasons for moving– and actually, they are probably the most coherent reasons for moving that I’ve ever had. When I moved to Hawai’i I was like, ‘because it’s Hawai’i’. When I moved to Boston, I was like, ‘It’s cheaper than Manhattan.’
