I went over to my friends Amy and Greg's house last night for dinner and it was great. They also had over our friend Chucky who I never get to see anymore. Amy fixed a delicious dinner of vegetarian canneloni and asparagus. The best part, though, was just getting out of my house for awhile and interacting with my friends. It let me forget about my frustrations for a little while. I just got to relax and be myself. I felt great until it was time to go and I realized that I would have to get up and go back to work. I am hanging in there because after January 1, I will be vested with the library and will be able to draw retirement. I don't want to find a new job here in Denver if I'll be leaving in January. Also, I need to be able to pay my mortgage. And by January, I will have racked up a lot more voluntary experience here in Denver that will help with my resume and job-hunting in California. So, I just have to try and make it until January.

ok, well, that makes sense. (although if you sell the house to move, no more mortgage, but I agree you should probably wait until you're vested, since it's not *that* much longer)

Uh-oh, Vieve...he thought you'd be one of his advocates to get me to California sooner. I look forward to moving but I'm just trying to be practical until then.

Well, I actually think you should move sooner. (anonymous, do I get my nice things back??) Practically speaking, I see the benefits of waiting until you're vested, and it's probably what I would try to do, too. But sometimes, some things are more important than money or being practical, and it seems like this might be one of those times.
