The last few days have been so muggy that when I come home and look out my window it looks like it has been raining. (I stole this picture idea from Lynilu) When I first moved into my cozy little apartment I was worried that the wall a/c unit would not keep me cool enough in the summer. Much to my surprise it does so well in keeping it cool that often times I turn it off when I get home in the evenings. The fact that my apartment is also kind of a basement apartment and faces the north helps a lot with the afternoon heat. When I was looking through my old pictures looking for a good snow picture, I found myself so happy that I was no longer in my house. I had no idea how much anxiety the house was causing me.
Last night when I got home and it was so hot outside I started thinking about Minnesota and how much I love the summers there. It's been 18 years since I have spent a summer there, but I still remember it like it was yesterday. I have always had this dream of moving to Minnesota, but never knew how that dream would become a reality. Well, last night I decided to look at jobs in Northern Minnesota and found one in Grand Rapids. This is the little town where Camp Mishawaka is and I would do anything to move there. My Dad's parents lived in an even smaller town Northwest of there called Outing. Anyway, so this job is for a social worker and I called them this morning to see if the job was still open. Unfortunately the deadline for getting your resume in was last week. Darn.
A year ago I was more then ready to move out of Kansas City and I still think there is a huge part of me that needs to move up North. Last year I had no reason to stay in Kansas City, a year later things are a little different. I have a job that I absolutely love, I have co-workers that have become some of my closest friends, I have other friends that would be hard to leave and even though I don't talk to my family, they are still here. I keep telling myself that if I am meant to move to Minnesota it will all work out exactly the way it's suppose to.
Tomorrow is the big day and today I was actually excited about quitting again.
