Here goes: We're going to Philadelphia, y'all!!! Okay, now I'm going to carry on.
|Moving day donuts|
So just a measly 7 days after Match Day, BF and I packed up our lives and moved everything over the span of two days. Luckily, we had friends and family to help us. We put most of our possessions into a storage unit for the time being, and we are living with my parents nearby for the next fews months before we officially move across the country. As you can imagine, scrambling to find a place to live 3,000 miles away in two months is less than ideal. Unfortunately, that's the name of the game with the Match. There is absolutely no way to prepare ahead of time and look at places, because you have no idea where you're gonna end up.
Though I'm very anxious to find a place to live in time, I'm actually getting really excited because we are going to buy a house! Holy crap - I'm going to own (co-own) a house! I never would have thought I could afford to own a house at this stage in my life, but BF showed me the numbers, and the housing market in Philadelphia is very buyer friendly. So this weekend, we're heading to Philly to go house hunting, and I can't wait! Wish us luck! We're gonna need some if we want to find a home in one weekend, and to close in time before we start working.
