Geek Man and I are contemplating doing something drastic. It is either really brave or really stupid. (Although, in my experience, there really is a fine line between the two most of the time anyway.)
We’ve been out of work for over a year and a half. The savings account is a joke. Everything has changed. We aren’t getting anyone knocking on our doors to hire him. (Gotta love the IT industry! They aren’t even emailing us for jobs.) Besides the normal things that make a place you live become a home (friends, activities etc), we have nothing keeping us here.
We are talking about getting out a map and throwing a dart at it and then looking into relocating there. I mean, it isn’t like we have anything to lose! We can be unemployed anywhere. Of course, my family in Houston told us to just get a map of Texas to do this. They don’t want us to move further away.
I don’t know how he feels, but I think it is rather exciting. I mean, seriously, we have nothing to lose. Why not?! Once you’ve lost just about everything you’ve worked so hard for years to achieve, what keeps you from just going somewhere new and starting over.
Of course, I am more sold on this idea than he is. But like I have been saying for a while, I am restless. I think it will be a great experience for all of us.
But then again, maybe I am crazy. *shrug*
