Another Year, Another Move

Would you believe that I've been in New Hampshire for 20 months? That's right, over a year and a half of being a teacher in a small city (remember that's a small New Hampshire city as opposed to a small California city which would be a very different thing). It's been fun! I haven't had a car for more than 40 days of those 20 months so I walk a lot and take the bus. I sit at coffee shops downtown and go out for drinks with friends on Friday nights. I really thought for a while that I might be able to settle here for a while, I love the area and my family is close by, but no dice.

So I'm on the move again, this time to New Orleans! Yeah, I know: I was going to move there a few years ago, but this time I have a work exchange set up with a hostel down there and a plan to tutor. So maybe it's not foolproof, but it's the start of a plan and with all the snow we've had up here lately even half a plan sounds good if it begins somewhere warmer.

Did I mention I just turned 30?


  1. Happy 30th birthday! (whenever that was :-) ) Hope the New Orleans plan work out for you!

    1. Thanks guys! It was only six days ago and I'm still kind of in shock:)

  2. There comes a point where one cannot move quickly and lightly, with or without wheels. Follow your whims, interests and inclinations. Find as many homes as you can.

  3. Happy Birthday Ashley! Well done on making what was in front of you work til you knew it wouldn't and hope the new adventure is a good one for you.

  4. 30! A year so far in my past I can no longer recall it.
