My So Called Life - The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Embrace life -- both the sweet days and the bitter...embrace the joy and the sadness...the successes and the defeats -- for all of these things, both good and bad, have made you who you are.

Atlanta Bound! - Starting Over

It is official! I am moving to Atlanta. My time in Dallas has come to an end, and a new chapter is beginning. I am looking forward to the move for many reasons:

1) - I absolutely love the city of Atlanta

2) - One of my best friends Samuel lives there

3) - A new opportunity with new people and new adventures is always exciting

4) - I am done with Dallas :)

5) - Change is good

So stay tuned for an update on my progress of getting things settled for my move to ATL!

    Good Luck! I moved a year ago from Philly to New Orleans. I can relate to the excitement. Always remember why you are moving!

    Congratulations. I am so jealous, but I am sure I will see you when I am down there. I thknk you will come to enjoy it and love the people.

    Matthew... don't you have to travel THROUGH my fair state to go to Atlanta? Are you renting a U-Haul. I am 30 mins from I-12 ;).

    Well, if I don't get to meet you at a truckstop on I-12, I'll have to meet up with you and Sam in Atlanta. I flew there twice last year and have some really good friends there.

    congratulations Matt on making a good decision. Dallas is my least favorite city in the entire US and every time I'm forced to go there for business I swear on my soul I'll never return again... every time I return I cuss the devil for the entire trip.

    Atlanta is a good choice, nice people, and a beautiful city if you can take the heat (and the rain). Of course I would've picked Denver, but I'm biased.

    ;)

    Gock: What's wrong with the Big "D"?

    When I have been to Dallas, the men were INCREDIBLE and health conscience. They don't smoke like that nasty HOU and NOLA queens do!

    The only funny thing is the highway system. You can be on the far right where you need to be to make an exit miles ahead... and soon find yourself on the far left hand side. Sooooo many merging lanes every exit. That was an adventure!

    Sounds like someone has gotten into some trouble in Dallas. Most of the time when I leave Dallas, I'm glad to see it in my rear-view mirror. But thats only because I'm so hungover. For example...this past weekend. Whew.

    I don't know anything about Dallas, but Atlanta rocks, congrats!

    Thanks Nettie - I am excited about the move - more things got worked out today! So it is all set

    I will be there in September

    well, whether you think so or not, some in Dallas will miss you, and some wish you would stay. Just remember, this is a great time to shed the baggage you don't want to take with you.
    Also, think about who you are leaving behiind and who will be happy to have you back for a visit, keep in touch with them.
    Good luck and know that you will be missed

    A friend
