Sometimes, You Just Need Two Posts in One Day

Like when you get a job on the East Coast!

Exclamation mark times infinity!

I've been offered a job as 'New Media Coordinator' (or some such title) at MWW Group, which is located just across the Hudson in New Jersey.

And, yeah, I'm going to take it.

I start on June 4.

Which gives me exactly six weeks to: pack up, move belongings to Portland, prepare belongings for shipping, fly across the country, find an apartment, actually have belongings shipped, buy furniture, figure out if I need a car (::crosses fingers that I don't::) and basically organize my life.

First, I just wanted the preparation for New York to be over so I wouldn't have to worry about getting interviews.

Then I wanted the New York trip to be over so I wouldn't have to do the interviews.

Then I wanted the waiting period to be over because I didn't want to wait to hear back from anyone, I just wanted to know if I got a job.

Now I want this part to be over with because I don't want to go through the stress of actually moving and finding an apartment in a state that I've been in for exactly 24 hours. I just want it to be done already.

I'm hoping the trend will stop after this.

I think it's pretty safe to say we'll be celebrating my 22nd birthday in NYC.

You might want to go ahead and put the first weekend of August on your calendar.

Allison

I'm excited about your job. And I'm sure you'll love the east coast (having lived here 20+ years, I'm getting used to it).

Best wishes for a smooth move. And congratulations on the job.

That's wonderful news, Allison. Being in the same, "do I have a job, is it over yet?" boat as you were, I totally get where you're coming from. It WILL happen. The job did!

Congratulations! A word of advice (based on when I was living in California throughout the 1990s after leaving my family in Connecticut) is to start looking for airline tickets home to Portland for the holidays now -- not only will prices be better, but by August, all the seats will be completely gone (as in unavailable)!

Thanks everyone! I really appreciate all the support. I'm really excited about moving and I can't wait to see some of you again! It's so nice to have such good friends all over the place. Definitely makes the move feel a little less scary.
