As you could probably see from the above title, i’m moving! This is on a whim/what i’ve been planning for years. Let me explain. Ever since my dad first took my brother and I to North Carolina when I was 12 I’ve wanted to live there. I fell in love with Charlotte and the surrounding area. The people are great, there is a lot of business, there’s so many recreational options (hello, Carowinds) and the weather is so much nicer than New York. Ever since that first visit I’ve gone down many, many times and each time I say i’m moving and I never do. This most recent time, last month I was on a serious job hunt (needless to say, nothing panned out) as well as visiting my family when I stumbled across the border to North Myrtle Beach.
Now, i’ve only been to Myrtle Beach once in my life and had never been to North Myrtle Beach, but it, just like Charlotte, has captured my heart. So, I’m moving to North Myrtle beach!
I’ll be up and outta here in 2 weeks and then it’s off to South Carolina I go. I could not be more excited or thrilled. This is the perfect time in my life to make a big move like this. Most of my family is in NY, but I’ve got relatives in NMB so I won’t be completely alone.
I’m really stepping out of my comfort zone with this move and I really think it’s going to be one of the best things i’ve ever done. Heck, i’m even signing a lease to a place I’ve never seen in person! Don’t worry, my uncle and cousin have gone in person and give both the apartment and the neighborhood a thumbs up.
Anyways, enough rambling. Just wanted to give you guys a big life update! Now, back to packing.
Have any of you moved far from home? Any packing tips or suggestions for me?
