This thought has been in the back of my mind since I was a little kid, but it's come more to the front within the last few months. At 28, and on the verge of turning 29, and having finished school totally (getting a Master's) 3.5 years ago...and on top of that, finding myself single when all my friends are either in long term relationships, engaged or married, I think I want to do something for myself, and that would be to move to New York (I'm living in Los Angeles now, where I've lived my whole life). I've only visited, but I love it there and I'm constantly planning my next trip there. I've saved up some money and plan to continue my current job for about another year or 2 so that I can save some more. My mom is urging me to buy a home (in LA), and of course, this is smart, but I really want to live in NYC, even if it's just temporary. It's just something I want to do and say later on that I did it. I dunno if it's just cuz I'm feeling blue about being single and just want a major change to change that, but I'm starting to feel strongly about it. I've talked to a few friends and my sisters about it, and they're all supportive of me if I choose to move, but it is a major step, and I've never been totally on my own.
