I was chatting with someone last night and realized I hadn't made a post about this...

I'm moved into my new apartment (which is a total lemon. I've had to call maintenance over and over), but I'm already looking at another move... Across the country.

When I was out in California last year, visiting [ profile] kirax2 , I got a job offer in San Diego, which came with the offer of very reasonably priced living space. Just recently, I finally gave an official "yes". So, sometime this summer, probably at the end of June, I'm going to be packing up and moving all the way across the country, to a city I've visited twice, over a thousand miles from my family and the place I've lived me whole life.

I'm excited as all hell, and I keep having panic attacks and crazy mood swings (sorry,[ profile] faile_neume ) and this is the biggest thing I've ever done. I haven't told my family I took the job. I think I'm going to do it on Friday, and that's giving me a whole 'nother set of issues.

I want to keysmash forever. That's not very productive, though.

On the plus side, this means I'll be 1.3 miles from Comicon. Not that I have tickets or anything, because I'm afraid to spend a discretionary cent because this move is going to be expensive, and I'll be paying double rent for a few months, too.

I keep deleting keysmashes. My head is about to explode.

*hugshugshugshugshugs* And you don't need to apologize.

But I was a complete wreck at you! I feel bad. I was having some kind of bizarre stress/hormonal/emotional surge and spent the whole day feeling awful until I blew up at you. ;_; I really am sorry.

It's okay! I understand the need to freak out and I'm sorry I wasn't better at handling it. I love you and am glad that you could felt you could come to me.

Way to put a positive spin on it XD.

I always feel like I could come to - okay, yes, probably I shouldn't turn this into a dirty joke. I'll just say I love you and leave it at that. <3

Bad Jessie. Don't turn it into a dirty joke (but really do).

<3333333333333333 I look forward to you moving to California and me being able to come live with you for a month.

Dude the tickets are totally sold out. I checked like 2 days after they went back on sale and they were gone. I mean I was upset :<

But yeahhh calicali baby. We don't have swamps or gators or nothin but I think it's pretty swell. Hope everything works out smoothly for you!

I figure, considering how hard they are to get, someone else can have my spot this year and I will save the money. I know I'll hate myself come july, though XD.

I do like swamps, except for the hot and humid part, and the bugs. Won't miss the bugs. Or the climate. And the alligators tried to eat my dog, so...

I am really excited for you! I've moved a lot - across country and back and forth so if you need someone to talk too - please feel free to Pm me.

As a note: I work for a Realtor - if your apartment is really that bad you might be able to use that to break the lease and not have to pay double rent. You might want to check that out. :)

Good Luck!

Thank you so much for the offer! I'm trying to downsize to a minimum of belongings so that I can make the whole trip in my car, and buy new furniture when I get there. That was a hard decision to make, but it turned out to be cheaper!

The main problem with that is, I have a roommate. She'll be staying here. Though I've definitely been thinking about that.

Duuude. Craigslist. My entire apartment (with the exception of my mattress and box-spring) is craigslisted or found in an alley and covered in a few coats of spray-paint.

Eee! So happy for you!

[ profile] kirax2 has promised to hit all the thrift shops with me. I think she's more excited than me about going furniture shopping. I've got plenty experience refinishing and reupholstering, so I think I ought to be able to find stuff I'll be happy with without a lot of money or trouble.

New everything indeed! It's kind of terrifying ^_^; Thank you!

How exciting!! Congrats on everything, I don't know if I'd be brave enough to do all that. <333333 *lots of hugs*

I am not sure I am brave enough! But I'm doing it anyway! I told the internet (and, two hours ago, my mother). I can't back down now!

Congratulations! How EXCITING! (And by exciting I mean both exhilarating and terrifying.) I've been toying with the same idea, just jumping ship here and moving states away to a place I've visited once (sorta twice) and just... starting over. Making a better go of things. Just look at it like that and I'm sure your anxiety will lessen!

You have got the definition of exciting down, I am pretty sure. That is exactly how I feel XD.

Where would you be moving to and from?

I'm in Texas and I was considering Georgia. I want a change of pace that badly!

Good luck on the move! That is really a huge step, but congrats on being bold and going for it! I applaud your courage and determination!! While I'm sure there'll be some bumps along the way between now and moving day, ultimately I know you'll be successful.

Good luck with telling your family. I'm sure they'll be sad to see you go, but hopefully they'll also be happy that you're taking this opportunity and adventure. And if nothing else, remind them that now they have an excuse to go visit Southern Cali, which is beautiful and a very unique culture!

Slight problem with that... my parents hate Southern California ^_^; I hope you're right, though!

I can sympathize. My mom has a deep hatred for SoCal as well (something to do with the culture killing my aunt or whatnot), so if I ever moved there, well, there'd be waves.

I'll keep my fingers crossed, however, that your parents can see past that to what an amazing opportunity this is for you! Because, in the end, they should want what's best for you, despite their own reservations. ::fingers crossed::

Sorry to hear the new place is being a problem but I'd love to tender you a happy welcome to southern California.

Yay! You live out that way, too? Where?

I am nearly as excited about living near other fans as I am about the other parts of it! XD The only time I meet other fans without having to take a long trip is when someone decides to come down for mardi gras or something.

Dancing icons go!

I live in Santa Monica, so that's a a bit of a drive depending on whereabouts in the greater San Diego area you're located. Some of my college roomies hail from there so we make trips back and forth every few weeks. Actually one of them was just sleeping on my couch this weekend. So yeah! After you move our paths could definitely be arranged to cross =)

Hi! Okay, so you don't know me, but I clicked through to read your story and saw your news.

Congratulations on your new job. :) As a San Diego native, if you have any questions about basically anything, let me know. San Diego is a GREAT city and there is TONS to do, if you get hooked in.
