Times are tough. I haven’t been able to find and keep a job for about a year now. I love Florida, and I don’t want to leave. I have always wanted a nice place near the beach. And another major benefit is that my boyfriend is here. North Carolina is a drag. And even though I am going to be taking a break by living with the ‘rents, I want to come back.
For some reason, I just can’t get away from the idea that I am staying for my lover. I think the only reason I am sick of it is that I can’t get around and I am broke. I want to enjoy this place how it is supposed to be enjoyed: with a car, on the beach and having plenty of $$$.
There are two other places I would consider moving:
- New York City. I like the idea of living in the city. I have always wanted to go back there. I have family nearby in Jersey. I don’t have a car, and you don’t need one. And NYC is certainly a hub for writers.
- California. That’s the other place. The weather is always beautiful (except for earthquakes). I think I could assimilate into beach culture very well. Although I hear there are many shallow people there.
- (Key West- Like I said, I love the beach, but I’m already in Florida, so this one doesn’t really count.)
I am going back to North Carolina. The real question is, where am I going to look for jobs?
