|Really Important Plans
||[Jan. 31st, 2006|05:48 am]
Ari and I have been discussing my moving over to NJ a lot sooner than was planned. There are a lot of good reasons for this and I'd greatly welcome it even as early as this summer, but it's still a really big, sudden change that I really need to think over carefully.
His family seems fine with me living over on the other side of their house, which is really nice of them. And, it would be really awesome to actually be with him, for good this time. It would also be wise to figure out if we can handle living together sooner, rather than later (it would really suck to have been together 2.5 years or so, and to have made all these plans, only to find out that we get into arguments over soap or something similarly mundane). And also, to get the hell out of this house and Linda's increasingly downward spiral. Plus, our relationship isn't exactly flourishing under the long-distance conditions (the only thing that is is my cell phone minutes). It's getting increasingly frustrating the more attached to each other we get.
Though, if I do move over there soon it will take a lot of planning. Mainly with my job (will have to see if Matt can transfer me to a B&N over there), school (have to apply to Kean in time, get all the transcripts, get a scholarship/loan/etc), and most importantly, I'LL BE SO FRICKIN' FAR AWAY FROM MY FAMILY. I mean, I knew it would happen soon, but I'm still not relishing telling Mama about this. Or being 3000 miles away.
So yeah: in short, our planning this early move makes me 1) excited/overjoyed/relieved, 2) panicky, 3) think "That's across the country!"(yes, Amanda, I thought you knew this..), and 4) already nostalgic about campus and friends and family and work.
So, this is a great opportunity and I'm really excited. I just need to get used to it and plan things carefully.
Do any of you have thoughts/advice on this?
