Life is about moving on. There are so many ways to get what you want, that it actually makes me sad when people feel like they’re stuck. I thought I was since I turned 18 and didn’t immediately go away to college, or even go anywhere for that matter. I still haven’t lived anywhere else besides Jersey, but that is all about to change. This summer will bring the most monumental and life changing event I will ever experience. I’m leaving. Leaving because I want to. Because I need to. For some people, there is opportunity here. However, for me, there isn’t. I don’t want to stay here anymore. I fell in love with Washington DC the moment I stepped off the train. The moment I breathed in the air and saw the absolute beauty in everything I saw. I knew it was the place for me. DC feels like home in a way that NJ never has. I will always be a Jersey girl at heart, that can never change, but it’s time for me to move on. A fresh start sounds absolutely wonderful to me. August cannot get here fast enough.
