I think it's time to move. I really love Atlanta, minus all the DL men and roguish people..oh and traffic. Well, I have a possible opportunity to work outside of the office daily in beautiful Miami. This would mean a raise but relocation expenses are not paid. Beside that, I feel like I have gotten the true experience of Atlanta. I have done almost everything here I wanted to do. I love most of the people of Atlanta. There is a lot of Black history here, and the majority of black and brown people have a certain pride and polish. Not to mention, Atlanta is a loc lovers paradise. I see locs daily even if they have lost thier meaning upon most of the heads of the people who wear them here.
At this point, I am making a pro and con list. The positives include having a more active lifestyle, starting fresh in new town, not changing companies, living near the beach, and a raise.The negatives include moving away from immediate family, moving to a city where I have hardly no friends and family, having to buy a new "used" car, selling/renting my home, moving and packing.
I am scared, nervous,and excited all at once. I am asking all my blogger friends out there for advice. Have any of you ever moved away for a job or change in lifestyle? If so, tell me about it. I moved away for a study abroad in school, but that was temporary. This could be a permanent move! Thoughts?
