Seven things you should know about me…

First: After I finished college, I came home for what I expected would be a year or so. That was eight years ago.

Second: I have been kvetching about wanting to travel for at least 5 of those years, up until January of 2012 when I was laid off.

Third: I took my unexpected unemployment as an opportunity to thoroughly explore job prospects across continental United States.

Fourth: I have/had little to no savings.

Fifth: Solution? Ditch my apartment, slog 95% of my worldly belongings into my fathers attic, and move to the middle of the woods of western Massachusetts to live rent free and  save money till my departure on June 24th, 2012.

Sixth: I am freaking out.

Seventh: But I will be ok tomorrow.
