I have lived on the west coast for our entire life. I grew up here, graduated from college here, have friends as well as family here, as well as a wonderful job here. Still, after finally working our way up in my field as well as making a name for myself, I have been given an opportunity on the other side of the country! It requires moving my life across the country to take this job, but it is seriously worth doing so. It would get my name on the map in my industry, as well as set me up for some upper echelon positions down the road! I’m not psyched to transfer to the east coast though. I will be able to get along wonderfully once I get adjusted, but I think the people on that side of the country have a reputation for being rude. People here are rude behind your back though, so perhaps the former is better. The weather will unquestionably be the toughest thing to get used to, as it can get pretty stinking cold in the middle of Winter over on the east coast. That’s something all of us just don’t deal with out here! Winter will be difficult to cope with, but having to use a furnace to keep warm could be a welcome change from the Summers I know. I know it’s not going to be like that all the time, but it just feels like it will be different, I guess. I will have to make sure to get a place with a great Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C system installed! Otherwise I might have a harder time adjusting.
