    I've lived in Idaho my entire life, and although I've traveled several other countries and explored the western side of the United States, I've been wanting to leave this place for good my entire life. I graduated high school this June, and at the end of this month I get to jump...

    I may be moving from the east coast to San

    Francisco but I'm afraid! Only my boyfriend lives there now and I have an awesome job lined up. But again... I'm nervous to leave my friends and family.
