My best friend, julielikestumblr, and her Erika have been making vague plans to move to Seattle within the next few years. And I will most likely be going along. I’ve been telling people that I’m probably moving there. And they ask why. And I say because of Julie, mostly. That sounds silly. I also really want the change of environment, the feeling of starting over. I love Chicago, but I feel like I’m settling out of comfort. In recent days, I don’t have a desire to hang out with anyone here. I love my friends here. But I’m craving the company of everyone far away. And Seattle also has a handful of people I love already there. That’s a major plus.
I’ll be visiting Seattle for a few days in September, after stops in Honolulu and San Francisco. I have been working a lot on various projects for various people in addition to the one that pays the bills the most. And I’m burning out. At least this time I’ll actually earn my vacation days.
I’m not always in a state of self reflection, but it sure appears quite often. I need to be better, whatever that means.
