I, for the moment, have dual citizenship. I have an apartment in Denver and an apartment in Grand Junction, CO. Both. At the same time … also … I’m moving again.
Although Junction is small, non-urban, politically conservative and, you know, far from urban, it’s a great little town with an amazing community of friends that I’ve really come to love. Some are new friends and some are less new, but they’re all incredible people with whom I love spending time.
One of the new friends I liked so much that I took her on some dates. Allison was a mutual friend several ways. We’ve been dating for a little less than two months now. She’s incredible and I still kinda get amazed simply that I know her. Even though we’ve only been together for a short time, it feels like a good idea to move out here and remove distance from the equation. So that’s what I’m doing. Starting January.
I’m writing this from my apartment in Denver which I have until mid-January. And a couple weeks ago I signed a lease on an apartment in GJ. I hope this isn’t the last time I have homes in more than one city—though, with any luck, the next time it will be vacation homes, and they’ll be in places like New York, Chicago and London.
I plan to be back to DEN/COS fairly frequently, but time will tell. Hopefully I’ll be able to see you friends here at least as often as I do now, if not more.
