Thank you so much! To be honest, cost of living in Boston is really high too. My main reason for moving is the damn weather. I can't take the snow anymore lol.
Yeah, no kidding. My husband and I moved to Minnesota back in October.
The snow can be pretty, but I'm sick of having to worry about digging out my car and being afraid that I'll have to wake up several hours in advance for work to do that, and what do I do if the snow plow hasn't come through? ... Class maybe or maybe not getting canceled and not finding out until right before I'm supposed to leave, worrying about slightly warmer days (because the snow melts, then freezes, so everything is a slippery, ice-y death-trap)... I'm tired of it being brown, and I'm tired of not being able to see the ground or anything at all because it's just snowwwwwwww. Tired of wanting to go places, but having to worry about whether or not we're going to be stuck in traffic because someone slid off the road or hit someone, and the mess that snow makes... I'm so dry and itchy all the time, and I feel like the dry cold air makes me feel ill- not sure if that's a thing or not. Every time I go outside and there's even a slight breeze, I have tears pouring down my cheeks because it irritates my eyes... Oh, and I hate having to dress up really warmly, and then having to take it all off when I go into warm buildings so I end up having to carry my jacket and scarf, etc., around all day because I'm burning up, and trying to use a public restroom without having my jacket and whatnot brush up against the stall wall or toilet.
Ughhhhh, I needed to rant. Minnesota is a great state and I love the culture, but I don't want to live somewhere with so much snow. I like seeing the textures of natures and bright colors, and being able to easily leave home. Unfortunately for me, I'll probably stuck here for another 5 years or more.
Hang in there, at least you are on the path to being able to move, now that you've almost gotten your degree.
