i (will always) <3 new york
leaving new york is something i could never have envisioned for myself. it wasn't an easy decision. i had a bittersweet departure. i wasn't finished with it yet. but i don't think anyone can ever be "through with it." unless your bank account tells you different.
I got a lot of flak for choosing such an extreme change. some of it lighthearted, some of it not. and i enjoy a healthy dose of criticism.
"Dorothy, where's Toto?"
"Kansas!?,.. what are you gonna do there? Milk cows?"
i do realize i'm taking a big chance here. especially on paper - no job lined up. only spent 18 days with this guy. total culture change. away from everything i know. - but the risk only adds to the fun. i generally like to avoid comfort zones. and this might be my biggest challenge yet. i'm excited to be out of my element and experience something new. i loved my life as it was. but i think it's important to be open for change. and have the ability to adapt.
tomorrow michael and i will drive 17 hours straight to wichita.
