I haven't told anyone other than my family and close friends about Seattle since I haven't discussed quitting with my boss yet- I don't want him to hear that I am leaving from someone else. I would like to speak freely about my life with my work pals, and I don't like pretending that I will still be here in a month. I plan on telling him on Friday, which will give me exactly a month before my proposed last day.

There are many aspects of life in Boston that I will not miss: Red Sox fans, the drivers, the way people drop 'r' from some words and add it to others. I'm going to be positive though and focus on what I think I will miss. Of course, you never really know what you have until it's gone, so it will be interesting to see how accurate my predictions are. Friends are a given.
- Coolidge Corner
- Having a Trader Joe's a block from my home and my work
- Egg and cheese muffins at Dunkin' Donuts
- The view from the bridges over the Charles River
- Free access to museums with my BAC ID
- New York for $30 round trip

David and I have decided to move back to the West Coast. We're sick of Boston, Massachusetts, New England and the Eastern Seaboard as a whole. I've found a subletter for my apartment, and as of May 10 I will no longer be living in Coolidge Corner. I'm going to quit my job, sell most of my things, and return to where the sun sets over the ocean.
