the midwest is eating me alive

California Bound

I just got a call from San Diego Harley-Davidson. I got the job. They want me to start as soon as possible. I will be putting my 2 weeks notice in to my current employer tomorrow.
It’s really happening. I have a place to live and a job. I have friends that want to help me drive the UHaul across the country.
I’m scared shitless.

I’m spoiled here in Indy. I have the BEST group of friends. Literally the best. I have 5 or 6 dudes that will drop what they are doing and come save me if my bike breaks down. I have girlfriends that I can call at anytime to talk, party, or just chill. I know this city inside and out.
That’s why I need to move. I’m not running away from my friends, if I could take them with me I would. I’m moving away from Indy to get a new perspective on life.
I’ve done a lot of traveling this summer and it’s opened my eyes. Winters in Indiana have destroyed me mentally. I get depressed and this last winter was especially hard on me. I realized that I don’t have to live with that. I can pick up and move to a warmer climate. Ride year round. I don’t have to deal with seasonal depression anymore.
I know it’s not going to be a walk in the park. Or easy. I’ve put forth a lot of effort job hunting and exploring my options. I’ve networked and already started making friends out in Southern California. I’ve also reached out to old friends living there as well and they don’t regret picking up and leaving.

The hardest part will be saying goodbye to all of my friends. Tears are welling up at the thought of leaving everyone behind. I know they will be a phone call away but it’s not the same. Those that truly know me, know that I take pride in my loyalty to my friends and I feel like I am bailing on them.
I need everyone to know that I’m not bailing on them, I’m just trying to take a chance to be happier. I’ve already passed up the opportunity to move to California once, I can’t pass it up again.

I love you all. wish me luck.
