All my worldly possessions have been stuffed into the cardboard boxes stacked all around me. After I post this message, I will shut down my computer and pack it up as well. First thing tomorrow morning I will load up my rented U-Haul truck, and after saying goodbye to some very close friends, I will head off to my new life in Boston. This is the last you will hear of me until I arrive, probably sometime Sunday night.
It breaks my heart to have to leave my adopted hometown of Chicago, and quite frankly, I’m scared shitless of what I may be getting myself into in Boston. This is one of the most difficult choices I’ve ever had to make, but I’m confident that I’m doing the right thing. Hopefully someday soon I’ll find my way back home.
I’ll be driving all day tomorrow and Sunday… Please keep me in your prayers as I embark on this journey.
