So even though I have in effect broken up with my SO, I thought I'd just say again. . . it's still my plan to move to Whitehorse in the next few years. Yeah I know, there are plenty of you who disagree with this plan. (Ok disagree is putting it mildly. . .you think I'm nuts) The fact remains; it's what I want. Whether or not we reconcile doesn't come into my consideration the way you might have thought; and quite frankly, it shouldn't come as such a surprise from a girl who has been suffering from a severe Northern Exposure fantasy since the early 90's.
This isn't about moving away from something or someone. . . it's about me. It's about who I am, and how I feel. I realize it's hard for some of my family, and friends to understand this decision. I get it ok. I get that to you guys it looks like a ridiculous thing to do. Who moves to the Yukon?! Right? The answer is easy, people like me move to the Yukon.
Think of it as a plus, you guys can come visit me and tell everyone you went to see your crazy friend/relative in the Land of the Midnight Sun. Now that's a conversation piece!
So just to reiterate. . . I'm gonna keep planning. . . I'll keep telling you stupid facts I've learned about how Whitehorse has a Domino's or a Liquidation World; and you. . . you get to be hurt, you get to be fed up with my banalities. . . and at the end of the day, you get to love me still. You get to be happy that I'm going to follow my dreams. You also get to be loved by me, with the added benefit of knowing that if you ever plan on doing something EVERYONE says is stupid. . . at least I'll be there to support you :)
