You'd think that I'd be capable of keeping a blog up, especially when I've had little else to do. I guess because I wasn't doing much, I didn't have much to blog. Or is it 'to blog about'?

But I am about to make a big step toward growing up. In ten days, I'm moving to Chicago. I won't have my own place for a little while, so I'm not that grown up. But I have every intention of finding a job, getting a place, and making my fortune out in the big world. Chicago has never been my dream - I've been burned by the Midwest before. But I have a network of friends and family there, and the other cities that I would consider moving to - Los Angeles and Boston - are prohibitively expensive. So hey, I'm being practical. More grownup points.

I have to succeed in Chicago. I will succeed. I will find a good job- or at least one that brings me enough money to live in Chicago. I will find an apartment and convert it into a swinging bachelor pad, where I shall woo all the single ladies, who will proceed to put their hands up.

Grown-Up Points:
Moving away from home town: +3
Choosing a practical destination: +2
Retaining a gleeful fascination with Beyonce: -1

Current Standing: 5
Not bad.
