Slow, deep breaths.

I am going to do it.

I am trying not to freak out. Moving to another state will be very difficult (unless I pay a lot of money and have movers take care of everything) but I will be making a lot of lists over the next few days; that should help me wrap my mind around this huge task by dividing it into smaller ones. I decided to do it because, besides Northampton, NYC is where I wanted to live my whole life. I have to respect that desire, even though it will take me out of my comfort zone. I love the city and I am very excited about the idea of living there. I figure my next full night's sleep will be sometime in April, after my brain calms down a little. I will be leaving a lot of people I love, but I'll be back for visits. And my friends will have a nice futon couch to sleep on when they come and visit.

If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere!

Congratulations--and good luck!

Holy crap. You are like the bravest person ever. Gosh, this Valley will miss you.

I think you should have a giant, giant going away party.

[Passing out with excitement.]

[Waking up, looking around; seeing monitor, passing out again.]

[Finally coming to.]


My goodness, but this is some exciting shit.
