I don’t know if it’s been the snow, my general boredom or something I haven’t been able to identify but I’ve been contemplating finally leaving New York.
If I did leave, the only place I’d want to go is Los Angeles for a variety of reasons (already have friends out there, weather, etc.).
Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE New York. No matter where I ended up, I would still say New York is the greatest place in the world but lately that isn’t enough. I’m bored. I’ve lived in here my entire life (even went to New York University) and think some change would do me good. When I used to talk shit to my non-New York friends, I would cite how nothing ever closes and if I woke up at 1 AM and still wanted to go out, I could. The thing is I’m not going to do that. When I go out now, I’m most likely getting before what would be closing time everywhere else.
Then again, I’d miss my friends and family not to mention my sports teams (The thought of not being able to see the Yankees regularly actually weighed heavily on my mind as I was debating this) but moving might be fun. It also might be a terrible decision but at least it would be interesting.
(Don’t worry, given my financial situation and lease, it would take me at least a year to safely move)
