Moving to the West Coast for an epic life change!
We have made the capital decision to exit Northern Virgina / Washington DC stage left effective immediately. Thirty years in NOVA was enough superficiality to last three lifetimes! So to one and all Virginians…PEACE OUT! I encourage to look for places to live that has a better quality of life and cost of living. The world is a huge place and there are so many better places to live. Time to vote on your feel people & take your taxpayer dollars elsewhere, because you are no longer getting your moneys worth or your quality of life for what you are foregoing.
Though Reston, Virginia was a “great place” to grow up and live in the 90′s or about about 10-15 years ago, it has undoubtedly “jumped the shark.” And frankly, either getting devoured by a metaphorical great white or being turned into a mindless zombie was not just not very high on the to do list for this lifetime (sorry to disappoint). Reston as a town has certainly lost its original plan, promise, spark, values, and community. It is certainly not a place I would want to raise either of my children under any circumstances. I am really really really really really really looking forward getting off the never-ending hamster wheel and moving to the West Coast for an epic life change!
I have undoubtedly achieved one of my life’s goals as I am leaving Reston, Virgina / NOVA permanently. Looking forward to getting on a plane October 14th 2009 bound for Portland, Oregon.
