Unlimited Options

I'm fairly certain that I will not be returning to my current school for the upcoming year.  I don't need the abuse from the administration and frankly, I dread going to work each morning.  This decision is terrifying.  I have nothing keeping me in DC, so my options are unlimited. I've applied to 2 jobs in NYC a handful in San Diego. I'm also looking into applying to jobs in Charleston, Los Angeles, and possibly San Fransisco.  Although I was super stoked to travel to Alaska this summer, I may put those plans on hold until I get my act together.

I realized that my restlessness has been going on since college.  In college I was a big fish in a small pond.  I was very invovled, was surrounded by great friends and loved the community.  I have not been able to recreate that since.  Maybe thats why I keep itching to move, which the logic in me knows that I'll never create an exact experience nor will I develop those same strong friendships if I don't stay somewhere long enough.

With that in mind, do I stay and try another year or do I pack up the corolla and try somewhere new?

  1. That's why I'm moving back to Stockton--I know the exact feeling!

    PS I'm really bummed, apparently Google Reader hasn't been pulling your posts, so I just assumed you weren't blogging!!
