I’m ready to leave Atlanta. I know I have said that before, but this time I mean it. There are a number of reasons why I want to leave. I won’t go into those reasons as I have made my thoughts on Atlanta very clear in the 10 years I have operated this blog. You can refer to my old blog for those rants….
It is time to go. The fact of matter is I’m not happy here and I haven’t been in a very long time. Right now I feel I’m in the best position to move. I hate my job and I’m quitting it. I’m single and I’m learning to live with it. I’m childless and I’m learning to live with it. I don’t have any major bills or responsibilities.
I plan to sell my house this summer. I think I will make between $50,000-$70,000 from the sale. The way I see it I can take that money (and my 401k) and go live my best life some place else. The only question that remains is where?
A big part of me wants to move to another country. I’ve been thinking about Finland, France, and England, but something in my soul is calling me to Cuba. I love, admire, and respect Fidel Castro. I hate capitalism. I hate living under capitalism. I’m open to giving communism a chance. I’m currently doing my research on the country, but it’s at the very top of the list.
I know I can always move to another state in the USA, but even then the question becomes where? Where can I, as a black lesbian, go and thrive socially and economically? I honestly don’t know of any other place besides Atlanta. I don’t want to struggle financially. I want an active social life that will allow me to meet and date black, single, CHILDLESS, educated women. Outside of Atlanta, I don’t know if such a place even exist.
Anyway, those are my thoughts for this post.
