Today, I'm officially moving to Seattle, Washington and leaving behind Southern California, the place that I’ve called home since departing for college in 1989 (except for a three-year post-college stint in New York City). No changes at Collegewise or what I do here, just a change in where I’ll be doing it.
Going to college is good training for life changes. When you leave the place you call home, start over, and carve out a new life with new people at age 18, it’s less intimidating each time you have to do it again. The students who study abroad, or take summer internships in new cities, or even just cross-register at different campuses get an even bigger head start. Add “making new starts” to the long list of life skills you learn during your four collegiate years.
I’ve got the next ten days of blog posts queued, but I’ll be away from my email while I’m on the road and getting settled. Thanks for reading my blog, and I’ll see you in a future post from the Pacific Northwest.
