Make A Move?

I’ve been thinking more and more lately that I want to make a change. I want to move. I considered LA and Atlanta but I think Chicago is where I want to be. It’s a big city where I can still have a career in marketing. Although I absolutely LOVE New York, I have this perception that moving will solve all of my problems.

My problems are:

  • Too tiny apartments in NYC (I want an entire room of clothing/shoes)
  • Having to worry about dating a man who doesn’t want to move from NYC
  • Driving anywhere (I just want to drive to Walmart and the grocery store, really)
  • Having peace and quiet in the suburbs (not as important)
  • Being closer to my family in Michigan (I’m missing moments)

I’m hoping Chicago could solve those problems. I could have a larger place with a huge walk in closet and full kitchen with stainless steel appliances. I could even buy a house or a condo. I could date knowing Chicago is where I want to spend my life. I could drive wherever I wanted to go and I could even go see my parents in Michigan (4 hours away).

It’s been on my mind for a long long time and I think I have decided to move right before I turn 30 so basically I have two years to enjoy NYC and then I’m leaving. When I came to NYC 5 years ago, I was different than I am now. It was meant for me to come here, grow, fuck shit up, have fun, and then leave. I’ve done that. I can tell my time is coming to an end, I’m bored but I’m also interested to see if something/one can change my opinion. I do know that when it’s my time to go, I will cry until the end.

I’m almost sure about this… BUT then again, If I hate Chicago, I can just move to LA or back to NYC.

One thought on “Make A Move?

  1. Wow! It’s hard to believe that it’s been 5 years! Time flies. I say do the damn thing. You’re young with no kids to hold you back. NYC is overrated. And like you said if it doesn’t work you will always have the option and ways and means to come back, if you would even want to.
