In an unexpected twist in my life, I find myself looking into the possibility of moving to Santa Cruz in a month or two. 24 hours ago the idea would have seemed absurd. I mean, I work and go to school here in San Jose. My family lives here. What would be the sense in moving "over the hill"? Well, I received a notice on my door when I came home from work yesterday afternoon. My rent is going up about $80 more. Not a whole lot, however, when I moved into my place last year I had no intention of staying. It was kind of a default decision at the time. I was relieved to find out this morning that I will on a month to month term on my lease, so I need no immediate action and can give this some serious thought.
I am going for drinks at Alison's tonight with some of the surf crew. I may go out for a paddle if there is any sort of waves, but the good stuff was this morning. Tomorrow morning for sure. I have a beer-bonding date with my friend Patty tomorrow night, so I can not stay in SC for the weekend. Plus I think on Sunday I am going start going through my stuff and get rid of things I am not using and start packing away items for when I do inevitably move.
