I have a decent savings, so that’s not the issue. It just feels really weird to leave all my family and friends behind here, to go somewhere where I don’t even have a job lined up or the likelihood of even getting something decent.
If you can get a job lines up, that’s great and you should definitely try to get one ahead of time because it’ll make the transition easier. But, if you can’t do it ahead of time, just go. You have some savings to live on, get in the car and drive then work your ass off to find something as soon as you get there.
I’m speaking as someone who did just move and everybody told me that I was crazy at the time, but I’ve never regretted it. Every time I go back home to visit, I see people who wanted to leave the area but never did because they didn’t want to move away from their friends and family. It’s very sad, and they always ask me “How did you do it? How do you just leave?” then they look really sad and beaten down by life before I change the subject.
If you want to go then go, you go always go back if need be, just don’t be that person who spends the rest of their life wishing they’d have just taken the chance. You’re young, you don’t have anything or anyone to hold you back, so go![/quote]
I imagine it would be possible for me to live few years away from my hometown, but not coming back here to stay - impossible.
