Life is filled with decisions. A lot of them are tough to make. This is one of those times.
I have an opportunity. I can't decide how I feel about this, whether it is a good move for me or a dead-end. I don't know if anyone can answer that for me, though. Actually I have 2 opportunities, to be honest. One of them I have this little bad feeling about. Everything looks shiny and good and yet something that was said stuck with me and made me think if I can find another one I should let this one go.
I have an opportunity to move to Nashville. Do you ever watch that TV show about Nashville with the cheerleader from "Heroes" sleeping around and her mother sleeping around and everyone sleeping around and sometimes there's singing? Yeah, well I have an opportunity to move there, not to be on that show or anything.
It would be a major ordeal to do this. I have a house where I am now. And the housing market here is really, really bad. And my significant other has a job here and they greatly value her at this job. But for her to describe her value to a new company in Nashville would be difficult. She's very nervous about that.
So, if I do this it means finding an apartment, moving into it in 2 weeks time, and living a very sparse bachelor's existence for an indefinite period of time with a LOT of traveling to really wear me out week in and week out and possibly kill me if some lunatic in an 18-wheeler beheads me with a sudden lane change (this happens A LOT on the interstate I'll be traveling most often.) It's a rough drive and it'll be every week, twice.
Then again, its Nashville. And Nashville is a nice place. Everyone who lives in Nashville loves Nashville. And what would that be like, to live in a place that everyone living there loves?
