originally, i had planned to pay off my remaining student loans, get a new tattoo, and put aside some change for the move to grad school.
but now that the check is in hand, i have other ideas.
i could buy a pottery wheel and move to north carolina. i found three jobs advertised in today's local small town paper working with adolescents doing supervision, health counseling, and interventions. all full time, with benefits. and i exceed the requirements. plus, you can rent a 1 to 3 bdr house for $250-500 dollars in this town.
what started out as a whim suddenly seems exceptionally feasible. scary and thrilling.
