Decisions, Decisions


I'm thinking about moving home. Not Hyrum, Utah where my parents live but back to San Diego. I feel like I have nothing for me here in Utah. I love, love, love the friends I have made here but I dislike so much about everything else.

Pros
I still have a lot of friends there
I could interpret a ton
I miss and love the amazing weather
No snow...ever
A lot less Mormons (don't take offense, i just prefer it!)

Cons
It would be away from my family
I have amazing friends here
I would be walking away from all the networking I've done the past 2 years
A lot less Mormons (dating potential goes up or down...hmmmm, I don't know)
Expensive

Help please! I need input!

Well, of course, I would beg you to never ever leave me. But then again, I know you need to do what's best for you.

Your networking will benefit you in San Diego too. Those of us here in Utah, will still be your friends (plus, we'll even come and visit you!) You exceed everywhere you go, and since when was money an issue with you? You can can make it work.

I totally agree you can't beat the weather in San Diego! If you prayed about it and it feels right, I say go and give it a try. You never know what might be waiting for you out there. :) Though I will say that once you get married and have kids, it is nice to live by family.

I've already told you to move out to DC. I don't support any other decision.

Dude, don't come to california. The state is broke. They cant even pay their police force. Their increasing taxes and insurance cost here. Everyone is getting laid off. Food prices are skyrocketing. Theres double the people begging for a handout. Stay in a place where the state government stayed within its means so when the depression hits it wont be as devastating. I too have had a hard time deciding to leave San Diego. But when I look at the bigger picture, staying close to family in a state where I am surrounded by people who share my beliefs brings a greater sense of security. You can be happy anywhere you are....except Provo.(hehe) I say leave Provo, but stay in Utah.

Julie knows what she's talking about. Listen to her.

PS You really waited to long to move. You lost your window of opportunity after we decided to migrate up to Utah. You are forced to live where ever we live.

hmmmmm, i say come. but julie will say stay. i like u.

kkrich said...

haha, nevermind i just saw that julie made 2 comments. nice. i was right. and after reading them frankly, i think it would be in your best interest to stay in UT. maybe try South UT?

the good life lies within, says beth hart in the la song. ( take a listen) you can be happy wherever you are. be sure you arent leaving to get away from things that are going to follow you. ( love you)

Natalie and Nathan said...

I think you should stay. Obviously people here are just cooler. Oh, and we definitely need you more! : )

Lindsey said...

you can leave when i'm done with you. which would be never,it is your decision.

Matt and Mal said...

We all love you to death and would be so very sad if you left us :( But we also love you enough to want you to be happy!! You're so amazing I know you'll be great wherever you are. But I'm personally on team Utah ;)
