Northbound - Part 2

Prologue: I've never written a "Part I" to this. The last time I tried (and failed) to go Northbound was something like a little over a year or so ago.. I don't remember the exact date. The result was disastrous and lessons were learned. I'm not going to go into what exactly happened, but, let's just say that for all intents and puposes the timing wasn't right... at all. (grin)

For the 2nd time in my life I will be attempting to move up North. The difference compared to my previous attempt is that I'm going to be a bit smarter about it this time 'round... and I believe I have a really good chance of succeeding. I can't really get into the details at the moment, but it seems that things are having much more solidity to them compared to the first time I tried this.

Some would ask "Why North?" I have several reasons for wanting to go, but the main one is that I got a liking for the North a long long time ago when I was little. My pop used to take me up there when I was a kid and I always liked it. In my later years I'm now finding out that the living up there is cheaper, the people are friendlier, the food is better (undoubtedly), the rock music scene is better..

Notes about the music scene: In Connecticut, the rock music scene is all but dead. I remember when it wasn't. There used to be cool bands everywhere you looked. And yeah I mean everywhere. At one point I knew about 15 different bands - several of them professional. Then suddenly and for no reason everything dried up and that was it; nothing was never the same again. Up North they have large rock venues all the time. What was a small murmur just a few years back has turned into something really cool up that way.

Concerning the whole "peace of mind" thing, I wrote here previously that either I was either going north or south for location. I've made my decision. I'm going North. This is the 2nd attempt and hopefully it will be successful.

Concerning recent events that have happened - it really looks like the timing is right this time 'round. Even so - I'm not going to make the definitive statement "Yes I am moving" until I 100% know for a fact it will happen. Trust me, if I get the confirmation I'm looking for, you'll most likely see a "Bug off, Connecticut, I'm outa here!" post soon enough. 🙂
