Lately I have wondered what would have happened if I had waited longer and found a job in Aitkin or Brainerd. Where would life have taken me?
My apartment is tiny, but I can walk to multiple businesses and neighborhoods. Walking from place to place is a little trickier up north. The trade off is the peace and quiet. Sure small town drama may exist, but it also exists in the cities.
I have no idea how long I will live in the cities, which is one of the reasons why I have resisted searching for a more spacious apartment. But I do have a love for St. Paul, it may never match the love I feel for Aitkin, but I don’t expect it to be able to reach that level in two years compared to what I felt for over twenty years.
P.S. a short post this week because I have a lovely 6 page paper to write, and a group presentation to finish, my final Economics class is on Tuesday, and then I will be officially done with the MBA program in August!
