Moving for a Job

Bonjour mes amis!

Do you guys ever wonder what it would be like to have to move for your job*? I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. I know there are some people who like it and some who don’t.

On the plus side, you get to experience new places, meet new people, and try things you’ve never tried before. On the down side, moving is a pain in the butt. Packing everything you own (and realizing that you just have too much shit) is a big fat chore. Saying goodbye to friends and family is never easy either.

But part of me still wishes we were able to live somewhere else for a while.

Outside of Hawaii.**

And because I’m really bad at segues…

Did any of you watch the Fionna and Cake episode of Adventure Time yesterday? I haven’t yet. I’m hoping it’ll be available online later.

What are you all up to this weekend? I highly urge you to make me jealous.

Much love, bacon, and sprinkles,
Arbine

  1. I’d like to just move to a new place sometimes, even if it’s not for a job. But I know I never would, I like being close to my family!

    1. I know I would miss my family like crazy but part of me still wishes I had the opportunity to live somewhere else. At least for a year or two.

  2. I can tell you that moving because of jobs is pretty much the worst. It sounds like fun until you are faced with the decision. Especially when you get stuck in a place that you’d never actually want to be. Recently, I was supposed to move from Utah to Indiana. About 2 weeks before leaving we were told that it was actually Kentucky. So we packed up and moved to Kentucky only to be there for a week and get moved to Alabama. It’s really hard because you get faced with the major problems that come along with moving, like having to say by to friends and family but then it’s amplifed by having to live in hotels for x amount of time until you find a place to live and whatever. Not to ruin your dreams but the reality of moving jobs is really, really hard on you emotionally.

    1. I totally see where you’re coming from. I grew up in a military family so moving around isn’t exactly a new experience for me. I’ve had to say goodbye to a lot of friends and family over the years. It’s just been quite a while since I’ve lived somewhere different so I think that might attribute to some of the longing.
