I’ve finally landed on a place to live—a state with great job opportunities, lots of nature, all four seasons, high walkability score, no state income tax, and legal lettuce.
On the other hand, I’m nervous about driving on snow AND I’d be part of a super minority as only 5% of the population is Black.
The pros outweigh the cons, but I can’t help being scared of the unknown. In a way, I’m feeling like a school girl again with the same butterflies I felt before moving off to college.
There’s no handlebars this time—no long time friends moving there with me, none of the built in community that living on campus provided.
This time I’m making big girl moves all on my own while tying hearts on my chest to soothe my anxious soul.
