I may be moving pretty soon. Generally I don’t really like moving, but I will be moving now because I’m getting another job so that would be good. I’ve been thinking about changing jobs for a while now, anyway. It’s not that I don’t like my job, it’s just that a new opportunity came up and I’m trying to take it.
One thing I need is to find a place to live if I am going to take this new job. I’ve been looking at Charleston real estate to see what is available in the event that I end up going there. It’s not too far from where I live so I’m kind of familiar with the area but I still wanted to see what it’s like there. I suppose I could stay where I’m at now and just have a longer drive to work each day, but that’s probably not going to be much fun. I prefer to have a short commute, like under 15 minutes each way, because it’s easier that way and gives me more time to do what I want after work each day. I do have some friends who live kind of far from where they work who work from home a few days a week. That’s actually kind of cool sometimes as it means they don’t have to sit in traffic but do I really want to sit at home and work? I don’t want to associate my home with working. That doesn’t sound like fun.
So anyway, I’ve been looking at houses in the area and trying to decide where I want to think about living. I have a few friends in the area, or who used to live there, so I’ve been asking them where their favorite areas are. Of course, it takes a while to buy a house so I’ll end up living here for a while in the beginning anyway. And this is all assuming I end up getting the job. I haven’t finished the interview process yet and remember that interviews work both ways. They are trying to see if they like you and vice versa, although I don’t know too many people who have said no to a job after the interview. I guess it could happen.
Ok well I’m going to get back to looking at places online now and finding some I like. A friend of mine has given me some suggestions for areas to look and like I said I’m already kind of familiar with Charleston, anyway, so I have some idea of the areas I want to be looking in.
