job offer...


I am getting a job offer from this company in the mail on Monday. This is a very good thing, but my emotions are definitely mixed. I don't want to leave Boston, I don't want to leave my friends. I feel like I just have so much unfinished business here, so many things left up in the air. I've been such a wimp about such things, and now I get to leave behind all these unresolved chords.

Plus, I have to move right after I got my room just the way I like it! No fair!

There are some upsides to this, though. Rochester has a lot cheaper rents than here. It sounds like I will like the job, too. Though perhaps on Tuesday I should pay them a quick little visit, meet the people, make sure I'll like it there, at least a little. That would also give me a chance to see these cheap apartments in person, as well.

Cutting off all these unresolved crushes (unrequited, but also unrefuted) may be just the ticket; a fresh start may get me thinking about relationship things in new ways, and I can stop sabotaging myself from the beginning. Also, there are a lot of distractions out here. In my years at DI I let my social life grow to fill my free time there, and it takes up so much of my time now that it's hard to do anything productive. A reset button on my social life may also be just the ticket.

I will definitely try to have a kickass going-away party. Watch this space. It'll be more conducive to hanging out and talking than, say, bowling. Honest. :)

So anyway, I'm gonna get a 2br place out there, so people should make sure to come visit, it'll be, y'know, idyllic and whatnot. Also, I'll be making sure to visit here on occasion. I will miss so much about this place.

I am really really really happy for you! Of course I will miss you, but the important thing is that it sounds like this will be a good thing for you, and if so, you should definitely pursue it. :)

A) congrats
B) Rochester, Where?
They list CO, Jacksonville, MPLS, Philly, SF and DC, but I don't know which of those is near a Rochester...
C) Be careful about the social reset...you don't want to be a hermit and evaluate how much community you need to be comfortable for the time until you create/find a new one.

That's great news. It also creates an opportunity with those crushes -- if you try
to follow up on them and they're not requited, you'll be leaving. If they are requited, an LDR is a great excuse to come back and visit!
