A number of weeks ago I wrote a post asking for advice on whether I should move to Seattle. I was at a point where I didn't feel tied down to Minnesota, etc. and felt it would be a good time to pack up and try somewhere new, namely Seattle.
A week or two after I made that post, I was contacted for a second-round interview at a web development place in the Twin Cities that I had applied for and interviewed at a few weeks prior. I thought that this had to have been a fluke because I was so under-qualified for the position. But, lo-and-behold, I was offered the position the next day, and I couldn't find it in me to turn it down. (I want to be working in web/software development long-term, and they're paying me waaaay more than I ever thought I'd be making 4 months out of college.)
So, I scrambled to find an apartment. Luckily, two of my close friends were also looking for a place. We found a top-floor apartment in an old house in the Summit/Grand/Selby area of St. Paul, which has been an absolutely wonderful place to live so far (and a stark contrast to the neighborhood I spent four years in during college). I've also started teaching a computer class at the library on Monday nights and helping out at a bird sanctuary on Tuesday nights.
This is all to say that, although I'm a bit disappointed I didn't move out of the Minnesota for the first time in my life, I'm in a pretty great place. Thanks to everyone for the great advice in the previous thread (onehunna, thenewgreen, sounds_sound, insomniasexx, and particularly b_b for encouraging me to instead focus on finding a job that I'd really love). :-)
