briefly on moving & my IKEA wishlist
Once a month is NOT what I had in mind for blogging this year, but that’s my rate of posts so far. Oh well. Things have been so busy! I’m moving to a new city 5 hours away in under three weeks!
The new job is exciting. People keep asking me, “is that what you want to be doing?” which I find to be a very odd question. Do people ever get to do “what they want to be doing”? I think that’s rare to find. My answer is usually something along the lines of, “in the sense that I want to do something different than I have been doing, yes.”
I can be a functioning member of society without a clear career path, and so can you!
Moving is going to be interesting. Mostly terrifying. I’ve been very lucky so far and have been in contact with a great new roommate in the new city. We’ll have a place nailed down by this weekend, and the last week of the month will involve a Uhaul truck and trek to the new house.
Friends and family have been incredibly supportive - this is a great change for me and we all know it.
On top of a great new job, I will also be located near an IKEA rather than just within a 7 hour drive of three IKEAs. And I have some priority purchases to make!

Since I’m probably / maybe / definitely / more likely than not moving to Atlanta next month (the timeline is so blurry right now) I NEED TO MAKE SOME FRIENDS IN ATLANTA.
Help me tumblr you’re my only hope. Because I’m scared of reddit.
