I have lived in a suburbia area in the wine country my whole life. I have not ever lived anywhere else. My SO is content with where we live because it is great, he came from all over california, no one place, so he is happy with being here, but because of school I will be moving in exactly one year.
It'll be me, my son, and my SO all moving to this new, unknown place, in a more city like setting. I am scared/anxious all at once. It's some time away but because it's my first time leaving this county to live somewhere else I am nervous.
For instance...because I know where the safe and not so safe places to live are here, I know where I can live for cheap and feel safe, and where I would rather pay more to uproute a bit. So now we only pay $900 for a one bedroom.
Because we are moving to a city like area I have no idea which would be safer, so I looked around online and it seems like for me to feel in my element where I live We'll have to pay about $1200 for a 2bedroom. WHich isn't bad, for the bay area, but still.
I'm going to have to take out a small loan to cover school and whatever we can't afford for living expenses, I want to make sure I can be there for my son as much as possible, he will have no family in this area, and I see my mom every day, now I will be 2 hours away living in the city. :(
Have you ever felt nervousness over a move and being around people who are completely new to you, where you know no body?
