The one where I have to make a decision

One year ago today, I started a new journal. I wrote the following:

I just returned from a weekend at home with mom and dad in Paris...I REALLY didn't want to start this journal until I could start it off knowing exactly where I was moving to. But, no. It didn't happen that way. So yeah- in 5 weeks- I will be moving. To the East or West. To Arizona or South Carolina.

Um. Little did I know what would REALLY happen.

It wouldn't be until 2 weeks later that my friend Grace would call me with a job opportunity I couldn't resist. Even if it did mean moving to Tallahassee, Florida where I knew no one.

And I would get an official job offer 3 1/2 weeks later. And then 3 weeks later I'd pack my bags and move.

Here I am, a year later, in Tallahassee, Florida with another big decision to be made.

I signed a year lease at the apartment complex here in Tally.

My year lease ends soon. I have to let them know today what my future plans are.

And I thought I should let you all know my plans too, seeing that you are more important to me than apartment complex people. :-)

I'll be signing a 3-month lease today with plans to move to Washington, DC in January.

In 2 weeks I'll be flying to DC to look for apartments.

Granted, when I'm there in 2 weeks, I could change my mind. I may not like the city. I've not been since 2001. I may not find an apartment I like.

If that is the case, I'll come back to Tallahassee, regroup, and figure out the next step.

But what I do know is I'll be in Tallahassee until January.

Then DC is most likely the next stop.

Who else thinks this is crazy?!?!?!


  1. If DC doesn't work out (DC?!?! WHAT THE WHAT?!) you should try out Kenya. Just sayin'.

    PS: Excited for you :)

  2. Chicago is my next stop, Minda...also in January. I think we've got a good thing going here! I haven't announced it on FB yet, but I just figured you should know...we are BOTH crazy! Wheee!! Also, I love you. <3

  3. That is so crazy but exciting! Ya know, Josh lived just 30 minutes outside of DC in Maryland so if you have any questions or concers call us, he may be able to shed some light. Love ya girl! Too bad you won't be there yet at the end of December cause we're spending Christmas and New Years up there with Josh's fam.


The one about moving to a new city

Moving to a new city is not for the faint of heart. Moving to a new city as a single adult is for SURE not for the faint of heart. I&#...
