After just four short months in South Carolina I’ve decided to move back home to a chilly New York. First and formost i’m moving back to be with my family and friends. After it settled in that I wouldn’t be able to go home for Christmas I got really depressed. You see, i’ve never spent Christmas away from my family. I didn’t think that I’d miss my family as much as I do and i’m more than willing do deal with the freezing New York winters to be with them. (Also, I now can’t get ‘I’ll be home for Christmas’ out of my head.)
The second reason i’m moving home is money. I have had to work two jobs just to get by down here and it’s really killing my vibe. Unfortunately, the town I moved to is more of a vacation spot than anything and there isn’t a great infrastructure for anything other than tourism. I was so caught up in the excitement that I didn’t think long term. So, i’m moving home where i’ll be with my family and making more money. I won’t need a second job to pay my bills and i’ll actually be able to save for vacations I want to take in the future. It’s a win-win.
I’m so glad that I made the leap and tried moving but I learned that being that far away from home isn’t good for me. At least not now. I’d rather spend my time vacationing different places than living in a vacation town.
Ya live and learn!
Oh, and if you somehow missed it, I moved from Albany, NY to Myrtle Beach, SC in August :-]
