A friend of mine moved away after high school and started going to college in Tennessee. I stayed around our hometown and went to another college that was in our town. I didn’t finish school and have been working at a call center that is in the area for years. My friend still lives in Tennessee and a few weekends ago she came in to visit. She contacted me on social media to let me know that she would be in town. We made arrangements to get together one of the nights she was in and I was off of work.
I couldn’t wait to see my friend and patiently awaited for the time I was going to get to spend with her. We talked about everything and I told her that I wasn’t happy living here and having the dead end job I have. She told me I should consider moving to Tennessee with her. She said there are lots of opportunities and lots of people in the area. She said there are jobs and they pay really great in the city she lives in. She said I could stay with her until I found a good job. She said all she does is work and isn’t home most of the time.
Since talking to her I have been seriously considering moving to Tennessee with her. I feel like I would have more opportunities to grow and meet lots of people along the way. I would also be able to spend a good bit of lost time with my friend. I would like to move and I really don’t have anything holding me back here except for some family members, but I could always come and visit.
I have been looking at jobs that are available where she lives and also looking at the cost of apartments in the area. Something has to give and I want to make some big changes. I feel like I need to get away from this small town and move somewhere bigger. I am still thinking about going and am going to decide within the next few weeks what I am going to do. I think it will be good for me and it would help me grow as a person. I am going to keep an eye on jobs to see if I find anything I really want to apply for.
