So my fiance is having no luck finding a job in Virginia. With the job market the way it is, we’ve decided that it’s best that ONE of us is gainfully employed, and since he has the long-time steady job, it’s probably best that it’s him. Which means I’m moving to Ohio. I’ve already applied to school there and will be returning to get a second undergraduate degree in music education and elementary education (and hopefully, my Master’s in a few years in Administration), so that should be taken care of - I applied to Kent State and it doesn’t seem to be too difficult to get in. I’ve got a 3.6 undergrad GPA and 6 years of ‘adult experience’ under my belt, so we’ll see. If not, I’ll apply to other schools in the area.
I’ll be making my way to the lovely area of Canton/Akron. The fiance and I will have to get a new apartment that allows pets in order for me to bring Oscar and Emmy, the Wonder Cats ™, but mr. avabeth doesn’t seem too crushed about that - he wants a bigger place. The hardest part will be planning a wedding from eight hours away, but since most of the ‘big things’ are already taken care of, we should be okay with that.
So, any moving tips? Anyone in that area want to give me their advice? I’ve told my parents (whom I’ve been living with temporarily since moving back from NYC) that Ohio is a possibility, but have yet to tell them that it’s a definite. And I’m hoping to make it to at least one more MADinner before the move takes place. Any other Dopers in the Canton/Akron/Cleveland area?
