4 Months

I have 4 months to make some bigger decisions. Story of my life right?  What happens in 4 months?  In 4 months my lease is finished.  My amazing time spent in Chicago with my roomy will be over.  My heart will break many times over when this happens.  Chicago has been one of the best years of my life.  I will always remember it fondly and love it so so much.  So what lies ahead?  What is my next adventure?  My next home?  I have 3 destinations in mind.

New Zealand

This spot has been on my radar for a year or so now.  I had initially been talking about going there with my Ex, Miguel but that obviously fell through.  The thought and desire has remained though.  I'd like to go to New Zealand.  This is a great time to do that too.  They have a Work Holiday Visa for people under the age of 30 to travel and work for 1-2 years.  It sounds just perfect for what I need right now.  And I need to get out of the country again.  I'll be taking a trip to Europe in the summer or fall, so that will be nice regardless.

New York

There are friends and family and many memories populating this lovely area.  I have some opportunities that may or may not present themselves in the near future.  There is a clearer path of where things may lead if I go back to the east coast.


I've had it in my mind to go live in Cali.  It seems like a place I would love to live.  I'd be starting from scratch again, like I did in Chicago.  This isn't the worst thing in the world, but I'm starting to think like this: if I'm going to go somewhere to be somewhere new that is more health and environmentally aware, why not go to another country?  I do have other draws to Cali, romantic ones, I'll admit that freely.  But California is feeling less right for my NEAR future.  It is seeming like something I'd want to look into in a few years from now.

No decision has to be made now.  I do understand that, but I am feeling the weight to make one soon.

Wowza! I really admire your willingness to pick up and move wherever you're feeling you should go. Definitely not something I think I'd be able to do for myself!
