December 27th



As many may or may not know I haven't been around here as much. Between work and school, I've been loaded down with a lot of work and there's a reason for it.


I'm moving December 27th to my friends house right outside of Philly, PA. I have my own room and I also have a few job applications out and hopefully I'll hear back from them. It's a beautiful area and my roommates (the owner and his roommate) are really cool. The ones a philosophy professor which leads to some amazing conversations and the other is a German and philosophy teacher.


Enough about them, let's get back to me!


We met over the summer and struck up a good friendship and when I told him what was going on in my life he offered me support and such, but now that it's getting closer to my parents moving he offered me a place to stay for as long as I need to. I live a spit away from Philly and close enough to the area I used to go to school in PA that I'm starting to reconnect with old college friends. I'm also meeting some of my roommates friends and getting to know them.


It's a big change for me, moving off on my own for the first time and I'm scared, but at the same time extremely excited. I can be my own person and not worry about the parents finding out and giving me hell, and more importantly I'm near an area that provides a lot of gay youth out reach so once I'm settled I can look into volunteering in that area.


I have the key to my new place and I'm coming down here enough that I'm beginning to feel like a local and settle in (I already found my favorite town which is Chestnut Hill lol).


Well asi write this I'm looking at the clock and see that I have a few hours before I gotta leave. Damn you time.


Take care!

That's good news Eric!


Make sure you do your share of chores around the house and keep your areas clean. In fact, do something really OCD like keeping the baseboards clean. They'll end up letting you stay forever. :2thumbs:

Awww... moving out on your own for the first time is a bit scary but freeing at the same time. I was so young when I did it I was lucky my stupid phase was over. Sounds like you are ready to hit the ground running and are getting all the details out of the way before the move, good for you! I hope it all works out!!

Congrats Eric,


You will like it being on your own. I grew up in North Wales, North Penn HS and all, then worked in Norristown for years so I know Plymouth Meeting pretty well. Chestnut Hill is awesome, very much a fan of the retail area/commercial strip with all the shops and restaurants in addition to the super cool houses/architecture.


Best of luck with the move and school and work :)
