When is it time to move on?
Tonight I found out that 2 of my friends were offered jobs in other cities: G was offered a job in Houston, TX for a LOT more money, and C was offered a job in Paris!! (WTF?!) Of the 2 opportunities, I think that C has the MUCH better offer! Would I take a job in Europe? Hell FUCKING yeah! I am an American tried and true, but if the opportunity arose to do a job in Europe, there is NO WAY IN HELL that I would say no. It was tonight - after these 2 conversations - that I asked myself "Is it time to move on?" When do you know it's time to go? Should the status quo be enough, or is it smart to take an amazing opportunity somewhere else? This is something I definitely have to mull over. I have 2 best friends who moved to the English countryside and Switzerland respectively, and they both LOVE it there. Is this what I've been missing? Lately I've been thinking about moving to Los Angeles - but the allure of Europe is ALWAYS there. Always.
