Also, I like the idea of being able to ride all year long. I like the idea of going someplace NEW. Almost like an adventure, almost like getting to hit a giant 'reset' button and just start over.
I know that if I'm gonna go, NOW is the time to do it - before I get tied down with a girlfriend that doesn't want to move, a wife, kids, etc.
I wanted to go AWAY to school, and didn't (unless you count "away" as 45 miles from home - I don't.) Then I figured, I'd graduate and move away then. That didn't happen. So now, I'm stuck in a job I hate, I don't have very many obligations... maybe now is the time to do it. The last thing I want, is to wake up one morning, 40 years old, tied down here hating every minute of it, and regret never going when I had the chance to.
All I know is, I *don't* like Chicago. I hate the weather, hate the scenery. The only thing keeping me here is my friends.
I've already applied to probably 5-6 different positions out in SF. Tonight I will apply for the listings with Lockheed. I have an interview with Iveco (diesel truck company looking to open a location in Carol Stream, IL) on 1/14. That is the last IL-based company I think I'm going to apply to. Everything else will be in CA.
