So, I am pretty excited! I am moving to Chicago May 1, 2011.
I have been thinking about this for a while and I got serious about it in the last two months. I have talked for years about possibly moving to California, but nothing has come of that yet. It's scary for me to imagine uprooting myself from friends and family to move across the country like that; I've lived in Indiana for so long.

I decided that Chicago would be a good step right now. It allows me to uproot myself but still not be too far away to visit now and then. I was quiet about this publicly because I did not want to always be talking about doing something and never doing it.
Well, it's official now. I went apartment hunting this past weekend and applied for one on Sunday. I just received my approval; I'm officially moving to Chicago! The apartment is a nice one bedroom with east and west-facing windows, so it has lots of sunlight. That's important for me since I work from home. It also has a small sunporch, so I can work out there during nice weather.

Nervous! But excited!
