Do The Scary Thing First
Just when you think life couldn't get any scarier, it does. Harley got a job offer in San Francisco. As in a job offer that's better than the kind we said we would maaaybe consider moving there for kind of job offer.
So, long story short, after a lot of rosé and pro/con lists, we're moving to San Francisco.
I can't say that I'm not disappointed about not going to Denver. With the mountains and the craft beer and the hockey there's really nothing to not love. However, living and working in the Bay Area is such a unique experience that few people get to enjoy, so it seems like a good time to choose the thing that scares you the most.
This means I have to sell my car, and everything we own, and start biking to the grocery store, and find an apartment for less than $3500 that is over 500 sq. ft., but after all of those things have set in I think this will be just fine. This is a huge transition from everything I've ever known, but I guess if the fun of life is breaking out of your comfort zones I'm doing a fantastic job.
I haven't even come close to figuring out the new logistics of this, but I'll be sure to update as I do. In the mean time, if you know anyone wanting to buy a Jetta and an apartment's worth of furniture be sure to send them my way!
