- sublet my apartment
- quit my job
- bought a plane ticket to Saint Maarten
- all the while enduring horrible travel ordeals to spend Thanksgiving with my boyfriend’s family, only to rush home yesterday and spend it packing up all our personal possessions, in order to put them in storage before the subletters move in tommorow morning
It’s all worked out so well so quickly I’ve hardly thought anything through. That’s not exactly true, of course; I had been trying to move to the Caribbean for the winter ever since my boyfriend’s was approved to work remotely. But nothing was working out until last Tuesday morning, and now suddenly I have a whole new adventure ahead of me.
We’ll be there until March. I’m going to focus on my writing. I plan to finish my novel and start sending out query letters. I also am going to do some travel blogging, and hopefully scour up some other freelance opportunities. It’s a pretty amazing opportunity, even aside from the beaches and sun. That’s kind of like the icing on the cake.
I feel very, very lucky.
