    Not Just Out of State

    All the way across the country. I'm going to college in California and I am so excited.  All that's left is to wait for two more admission letters (just to see exactly where I'm going), get some scholarships/financial aid/etc., and pack up I can't wait.  :]

    From New Hampshire To PA

    I am moving to Pennsylvania. Not only am I just moving there, I am going to a boarding school there. AND I have to get braces there. It's going to be so difficult. I have to live in a new state with completely new people, not even my family with me. I am worried.

    Moved to Idaho from New Jersey looking

    for work and it has been hell. Been stuck here. Got a job offer in Baker Montana making really good money to try and get us all back home to the east coast. Really hoping it works out. Only problem is I'm a Veteran under VA care and no VAs close by. Not looking forward to that.
