from Birmingham…signing off

This is the last entry I’ll make here before next week, because come tomorrow, it’s time for the big move.

I can’t believe that it’s finally here. It’s amazing to me what has happened in the past 14 months. When I got out of the MBA program, I was fully convinced that I wouldn’t be staying long here; a job was just around the corner.

I will fully admit to the fact that there were times that I really felt that I was never going to go on with my life. Ding letters, failed interviews, and job listing after listing with “x years of experience required” saw to that. But then I decided once and for all to go back to school one more time, and things have started to pick up again. They have led to this moment, the moment that I finally take the next step in my life’s journey.

I am looking forward to it. As I’ve said before, I don’t regret the time I’ve spent here. I’ve been able to be closer to my grandparents in many ways, keep in touch with friends from Ozark and college, and even make a random road trip or two. But it is time for me to move on. I’ve had a long enough vacation.

This move will be a first for me in that it will be the first time I have moved someplace where I will be entirely by myself. For an introvert like myself, that is somewhat daunting. Nevertheless, I believe that I will be up to the challenge of meeting new people again. I know that there are people in Alabama who like me…hopefully, Florida people aren’t too much different. 🙂

Anyway, I’ll see all of you on the other side of the move, sometime next week, once I get stuff into place, groceries into the refrigerator, and the computer hooked up to the new sweet Ethernet goodness.

    Wow! Apparently I do a really poor job of keeping up with the outside world, even though I look at your site semi-regularly.
    E-mail me when you get set up in Gainesville. We live about 2 hours away on I-75.
