Um, so yeah.
If you haven't seen prosicated's post, we're moving to Boston.
I can't say I'm not scared.
excited, but scared.
yeah.
Boston.
Crazy.

*edit*
oh, and we survived the wandering bands of malls.
mood: too many.

welcome to the wonderful world of "moving to far-off, unexplored lands", bro. enjoy. treat it as a new experience in life, and take from it the good things you can. i can't say i'm not happy to be finally moving back home after such an adventure, but i think my life is better off having had the experience of moving to and adjusting to a completely different area. think of it this way: at least *you* will be no more than a 5 hour drive from home. we were a 5 DAY drive from home... best of luck homeslice!

thanks bro.
I am excited, Boston seems like a cool city, and I need to get my ass out of Philly. I've lived around here my whole life.
it's just... rent up there is insane. having trouble finding a 1br apartment for less than 1k. eep!
let me know if you need help unloading uhauls when you get here. you've got my e-mail.

I think I speak for both of us when I say we would love unloading help. We'll be in town this coming weekend -- by the 17th (saturday) or maybe before. Woot!

Good luck with the crazy scary apartment search.

You have my/meg's cell? let me know when you figure out when you're appearing.

well I do tech support at the moment, professionally qualified for deskside or phone support.
I'd like to be doing network/server administration, Linux idealy. I only have minimal professional experience with that though, an internship for a summer and some stuff I could talk up from current helldesk job.

any leads at all would be more than I gots now.

here's an edited copy of what I said in prosicated's journal, cuz it applies to you too sweetie: "isn't it a huge relief to know what path your life will be taking in the immediate future, after so much uncertainty? Aren't you excited to explore a new city, new people, new ideas? Isn't it wonderful that [you are] going with [her]? (And isn't it great that [you]'ll get to leave the job [you] hate?) And didn't you two have a great time when you visited? And isn't it neat that Boston isn't very far from us here in Phila, and your family in [PA]? Isn't it exciting that you might buy a house up there? There's so much to be happy about! ... This is a period of change after a period of stasis, that will be followed by a period of stasis again -- so it goes! ... But Ry will be leaving my band. and I will miss very much having you both close by. (Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!)"

And I am and will be eternally grateful to you for playing music with me, no matter for how long. And prosicated mentions you'll be nearby to the recording studio i may be frequenting, and I'm sure there's good fun music for you to play with people in Bean Town!

well, she's starting school in early september, so we're moving up before or around then.
there's a lot of figuring out that needs to happen before we'll have a date.
