Some News

I've been fighting to get over a pretty bad cold this week; I woke up yesterday, and I couldn't speak above a whisper. The ridiculous amount of tea I've had so far has helped (at least I'm convinced that it has), but I've still got a bit of a cough.

But that's not my bit of news.

As you may know, I've been back in my hometown for the past couple of months. I've been helping my mom get the house on the market. I hadn't really made the decision of whether I was going to go back to Atlanta when this was done or when I was going to actually be done. I love Atlanta. My friends are there... My boyfriend is there. They have really good sushi. On the other hand, I haven't had much luck in the job market there, and neither have a lot of people I graduated with, from what I hear. There are some other situations back in Atlanta that are a little unhealthy for me, emotionally speaking. So I've made my decision.

In September, I'm going to be moving to Austin, TX. I already have an apartment to move into. I hear the job market is pretty good there. They, too, supposedly have good sushi. It will be a nice break from a small town. I never thought I would miss living in a city, but I do. This is going to be something really new for me, but I'm really looking forward to it.


On a different note, I've joined Passionfruit so I can start doing ad swaps on my blog. If you're interested in swapping ads, just go here: http://thedapperlass.blogspot.com/p/want-to-swap-ads.html and use the promo code "Dapper Swap"

Then send me an e-mail at thedapperlass@gmail.com!

  6. Wow, good for you for taking a risk and trying something different! I'm sure it's not an easy decision, but Austin sounds like a great place to jump into some new opportunities. Best of luck!
