It’s been on my mind for months now. I’ve been planning and arranging things and asking for all the advice and help I can get. I’ve told my family, my friends and now I’m finally telling you: this Saturday I’m ending my long distance relationship.
That is to say, I’m ending my long distance relationship to have a, um, normal distance one. Starting February 1st I will no longer be living in the beautiful, foggy city of San Francisco, but I will call sunny Los Angeles home! Long distance relationships can actually be a lot of fun — mine certainly has been — but they are tiring. I’ve put in a lot of energy to make things work hundreds of miles apart, and now I’m pretty stoked on replacing my FaceTime dates with IRL dates. This also means I’ll probably want to shave my legs more often, but that’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make.
The fact that I’m dating someone in LA is certainly a big reason why I’m moving there, but it’s not the only one. While my love for the Bay runs deep, I’ve never really pictured myself staying in one city forever and ever amen. I’ve spent 3 absolutely fabulous years here and can’t wait to go somewhere new for a while and shake things up. I am excited, nervous and very much looking forward to this change.
Needless to say, last week was stressful as I started to pack. This week is going to be insane. Not only do I have to finish getting my stuff boxed up and seeing friends before Saturday, but I have to devour as many Mission burritos as humanly possible. El Toro, La Corneta, Little Chihuahua…where to start? I will be a busy, busy girl. Anyway, while I pack on the pounds and try to avoid going into complete crazy woman mode, you can feel free to join me on my moving adventures to Los Angeles — I’ll be posting on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Expect at least two totally adorable photos of my cat riding shotgun in a U-Haul.
Now, aside from that hella cool announcement, I have something even more killer in the works. Very soon — like in the next few weeks — I will be releasing an awesome mini e-guide for you called Resources for Everyday Adventurers. If you’re wishing that all the great suggestions I make for ways to spice up your life were all in one place, then bam, consider your wish granted.
If you like what Tremendous Times has to offer, if you want more adventure in your life, if you enjoyed 30 Things to Do When You’re Bored or Broke (or Both), then you will love Resources for Everyday Adventurers.
