I'm going to blog way off topic today. Today is not a paranormal day. Nor is it a geek day.
You see, I've made a decision to move. Not just a little move. Not even a cross country move. I'm moving out of the country. Doesn't that sound dramatic? Truth is, I'm moving just a bit south of San Diego to a lovely Mexican city.
And please don't post dire warnings about the dangers of drug cartels. If riots break out in East L.A. does that mean people shouldn't live in Santa Barbara? Because that's the difference between the drug cartel areas and the area where I'll be living. Mexico is a big and beautiful country. And I've done my research. Enough said.
So why is this making me so teary-eyed and why should you care?
No reason. Just the fulfillment of a dream. The letting go of another dream. Small things.
You see I'm overthrowing the existing regime of my life. The regime that bought into the American Dream of great job, family, house, fancy car and dog. I'm instead embracing the Tamela Dream of single, fancy-free, pajama workdays, rental condo on the beach, vespa and cats.
I'm drastically cutting expenses and adding a maid. I'm cutting my workload, but more easily paying my bills.
Most of all, I'm focusing on my writing.
Oh, yeah… and I'll be driving distance to Comic Con. So maybe there was a geek moment to be had.
So how about you? Overthrow your own paradigms lately?
