I know what you mean about wanting to get out for sure. A lot of the time I feel like Jimmy Stewart from It’s a Wonderful life begging to get out of this city. There isn’t much here to do, the city is boring. And I’m sick of the cold. I’m sick of the lack of adventure. I was born and raised here myself but until we both finish up college we doubt we will moving out of the state. We looked at going to Iowa State and the OOS tuition was through the roof. We don’t have that kind of money. So until we finish up school (most likely in the state) we won’t be moving out of here. 

Our dream is to move out of the country…more than likely England or Ireland area.

I moved to be with Fiance while he goes to grad school and gets his Ph.D. We’ll be here a while. There are not a lot of options here for my job, so I am ready to get going … but his schooling is paid for as long as he stays, so I can’t argue with that!

I know what you mean as well. Both Boyfriend or Best Friend and I want out of where we are (me more than him) but we can’t just pick up and leave. He needs to find a job first (smaller market means he gets the job pickins first). I hate my job and want nothing more than to give it a swift kick in the ass the day I get to leave.

We just have to pick somewhere that’s going to be a good fit for the next 10 years or so. There’s a lot of pressure and I hate that there is.

We can trade places if you want. I would LOVE to be in San Antonio. But Indiana isn’t great so you probably won’t agree to this totally awesome trade. ๐Ÿ˜€

I totally feel the same way. We moved to this area because of the abundance of teaching positions and then Fiance enrolled in college. So, though we both would like to move back home (this place still doesn’t feel like home), we can’t until he’s done with school at least.

Sometimes though, it’s not worth it to wait…Fiance and I were discussing how many opportunities there are for his field in this area and whether it be worth it to stay. I guess we’ll see.

I know what you mean.  I’m really not happy in the South at all.  It’s sort of scary to leave though too.

I am in an itty bitty town going for my master’s (also in Speech Pathology! yea SLPs!!! haha) and pretty much hate it.  The town is WAY to small for the big university.  I hate how cramped it feels.  Thankfully it’s only for 2 years, and I’m done this May.  It sucks to hate the place you live, though… Hope you figure out the situation that works best for you! I’m pretty sure U of Iowa is the #1 or #2 ranked school for speech path.. for their master’s program anyway, but I’m sure if their master’s is that great, their undergrad program is probably very strong, too!
