    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.

    Moving From Ohio To Washington

    This summer, I'll be moving from Ohio to Washington to attend school. At first I was excited, and thrilled to be able to do something like this. I felt important. The biggest issue is that I wasn't scared or nervous until now. I really don't know if I want to do it any more. I...

    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.

    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.  :]
