dc to chicago ?

i've been doing a lot of thinking lately [see: where am i going? what am i doing with my life? will staying in a post d plan break up dc really make me happy? etc.]. to sum it all up...there is a good chance i will be moving to chicago in the not so far off future. i've talked to a few of you about this. now is the time you tell me what you think. there are a number of different reasons i have for wanting to move; for wanting a change. part of it involves a boy. part of it involves increasing tension with the 'rents. part of it involves not being able to find a job. and it's more than just that. i've been feeling trapped in dc now for a long time. when my dream job got filled by someone who wasn't me; that was pretty much it. a few weeks after that, when i found out another job type thing that i would have loved to do fell through, that was it, part two. i really need to escape. let me know what you think about me & chicago, please.

Poll #160336 dc to chicago?

knowing what you know of me, do you think i would be happy if i were to move to chicago?

yes
14(60.9%)
no
1(4.3%)

i say get out while you can, I totally want to escape as well, no offense to any of the lovely DC people, it's just, you know, I have lived here forever and it gets a touch boring.

Moving is a good thing. It gives you new things to do, new places to see, new people to meet/hang out with -- all of which helps hone your exploration of who you are and what you want to do with your life. And, y'know, there's nothing to say you can't move BACK. So you go there for a few months and you hate it: move back! You go there for a few months and love it: you win!

All in all, if it's the right time in your life, it's a win-win situation.

moving for a boy is questionable.

i moved to richmond for a girl, i moved here for a girl. things didn't work out. if you are sure that the relationship is stable for the time being and you would be okay if it didn't work out in chicago, then go for it.

chicago is a great place. but is the job market really any better there? it's shitty everywhere. if you go for it, good luck.

ps.

what was your dream job? maybe you can land an entry level position with the company, even if you can't be in the position you interviewed for.

yep. probably, but in chicago i haven't been shut out of the temp companies like i am here. i'm kind of blacklisted for the stupidest reason. grr.

anyways, my dream job wasn't for like a company and nope, i can't. i'll talk to you on aim about it. blah.

people who know tell me it's a nice place.
