On Tuesday, SB accepted a job in the DC area. (I’m too Google-paranoid to actually say where.) He’ll be starting at the end of August, and I’ll follow once things are taken care of on this end. We’ve advertised our apartment, and I’ve given informal notice at work. I’ve started reading DCist and getting excited about living in/near a city – while at the same time getting choked up all the time when I realize that this really is my last summer in Champaign. As I’ve said to a few people, while I never planned on being here forever, I also never really thought about leaving.
One of my goals for the next year (along with ‘get a job’ and ‘find subletters’ and ‘not get grossly in debt due to high DC Metro Area rents’) is to take a picture each day so that I can share our adventures and our new life with my friends who are scattered all over the country – and also so that at some point in the future, I can look back on this really stressful, emotional, exciting time and laugh at how young we were.
