What A Grand Adventure 6

Grand Adventure// Being LeannaAfter 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 :-]

    Aww sad to see you go but so glad you’re doing what makes you happy instead of sticking it out and being miserable.

    I lived her for 2 years before I made friends, the population here is a lot older than I am so finding people with my interests my age was a task.

    • Thanks! Yeah, the population down here is much older than I am. The friends i’ve made are either my parents age or just out of high school. Definitely going to miss the beach and the weather but I can always visit!

  • Awww sad to see you go! I missed this post til today, and as a recent transplant myself, I can see how it is difficult to get into a groove here. Thankfully, I’ve got my work-from-home job that came here with me, which makes things easier, but my husband is still looking and it’s just so different from what we came from up north. Best of luck in your latest adventure!
