Moving... [May. 17th, 2009|07:07 pm]
[emotional state |optimisticoptimistic]

So as some of you know, I'm thinking about moving. To Glens Falls, NY. (This is where lbitw lives. Roughly) I've spent much of the past week and a half out here. That wasn't supposed to actually be the case, some stuff came up, but it's what happened. And it's been eye-opening, in a "This isn't always gonna be perfect" sort of way. That's been good. I still want to move out here.

I'm cranky today. I've been feeling kinda sick. That sucks. I've been having other re-occurring health problems of the female-bits variety. That sucks too. And yet, I'd still say this was a good weekend. Yesterday I cooked. A meal. I was cooking for 6, so of course I made enough food to feed 12. Stuffed grapeleaves and baked chicken (lemon juice, olive oil, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper. immensely good) rice pilaf, a Middle Eastern vegetable salad. It was definitely the most amazing meal I have ever cooked. I mean, I worked on it for half the day (I rolled the entire pot of grapleaves by myself. My back was screaming by the end of the day.) but I was thoroughly impressed with myself.

So yea, I'm most-likely moving out here in the fall. I love it here and I love the people out here that I now think of as Family. I'm looking into going back to school, but that's up in the air right now. I do think that it will be a positive change for me... I've not been able to find "happy" for more than fleeting moments in about four years. Being with these people makes me happy. Being out of the franticness of the city make me calmer. So what the hell, I'll give it a shot. Logistics still need to be worked out, and I'm working on those, but the last 2 weeks have been amazing in a really mundane sort of way.

So there. I'm announcing it.

Sounds like you found a good thing! I'm sure the logistics and other things will all work themselves out in due order. Hooray!

You've been a while thinking about this. I hope it works out for you, but it sounds like a good decision (whether or not it does). Good luck!

Having said that, I'll miss you. *hugs*

Y'know, I do a lot of trash-talking about the Glens/bury area, but honestly that has much more to do with my own personal reasons than any actual problems with the towns themselves. The area has a lot going for it (gorgeous scenery! Six Flags! Balloon Fest!), and it's only going to get better in the wake of the work they've been doing to improve downtown. That, and you've got a built-in loving support system upon landing, which is truly essential.

I think you'll do really well here. Sending good thoughts your way in the name of a smooth transition, and wishing you the best.

If I'd had more friends out here in Amherst, I would not have been able to leave. The calm aspect of this area is very compelling but I'm terribly lonely.

I think you'll do well. It's good to take a break from the city.

Congratulations and best of luck.

I know I've not seen you in a while, but you will be missed.
