So I’ve decided to finally leave the state of NY, AND my wife and daughter!
(temporarily from my wife and daughter of course, but permanently from NY)
I’m tired of my job, and we are both tired of the upstate NY weather (and we have been for the 2 1/2 years we’ve been here).
I can’t seem to get an interview out-of-state, so I have decided to leave, get a cheap hotel for a while, and then a decent apartment soon after.
I can’t rush the apartment because I have to find a decent place for when my wife and daughter come to live there once I get a job.
Anyway, the reason for this post is to get any last minute advice, and to see if anyone else has tried something as stupid…err, um, unpredictable as this, and had it work out.
So, am I a complete moron for trying this?
I have enough money saved up to stay out there for about 6 months, worst case scenario.
I don’t have a degree yet, but have 7 years of electronic troubleshooting experience, 4 of which were in the Navy, and I have an active Secret clearance.
I have 3 years of college, but no degree because I was going for a BS in Information Technology, and they didn’t stop and give us an Associates after 2 years (I don’t know why though).
Wish me luck. I will have to cut my training short as well, and will only have bands, and limited, cheap, Walmart freeweights (and my bodyweight) to use since I need to be saving as much money as I can while doing this.
This is going to be a little scary, but you can’t gain much if you don’t risk much, right?
