they always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.*


"There was that law of life, so cruel and so just, that one must grow or else pay more for remaining the same."
-Norman Mailer

Ladies and gentlemen, I am moving to Portland in September for reasons I cannot fully explain. I believe in following your instincts and your heart. I am starting believe that change is good for you or something? I never would have thought, would you? I am not to big on change, especially change of the severe and/or sudden variety. I know, I'm not moving for 8 months, but the decision itself was sudden. I made up my mind in about 20 minutes, actually, and I have not changed it. I will not change it. Lucky for me, Jessica, the lovely girl who inspired this whole plan, was just as excited as I was when I invited myself along on her adventure. It is all I can do to stop looking at house listings on Portland craigslist and live my life here while I have it! When I think about my move too long and too hard (like right now) I start to cry, but I want to assure you that these are not tears of uncertainty or doubt. These are the kind of tears reserved for those moments when your heart is so full that your excitement falls out of your eyeballs. The deep end is looking less and less intimidating by the day!

*Quote by Andy Warhol.
