Whenever you’re a newbie in town, it’s difficult to find local events because well, you haven’t a clue as to where anything is or which spots are best to meet people. But, after my first post was published, I had several locals message me on Facebook welcoming me to the town, which I thought was extremely nice.

I’ve never been the “new girl” in town because I’ve only ever lived in one house, so moving to another state is a bit of a change for me.

I believe everyone around him—including him—knew he had the position once they … Continue reading Deciding To Make The Leap To Move Is Quite Scary

You could be chatting with a fat and perverted man while his pictures … Continue reading I Met My Boyfriend On OkCupid, And I Am Proud Of It
By Hope Kumor Moving to another state when you’ve never left your house is pretty darn scary. It’s even more frightening when it’s 827 miles away.

You can be a whole different person because well, … Continue reading I’m Moving 827 Miles Away From Home With My Boyfriend, And I’m Pretty Scared
