I found out yesterday that there's a good chance that my dad and possibly my mom are going to gets jobs in DC in a couple years and stay there for a couple years. This is bad and good because:
a) if they both go, they're likely going to sell the house I grew up in. We own a house in SF, so it's not like I'll no longer have any roots here, but I'll be an undergrad and when/if I come home for the summer, it won't be to my hometown. I suppose this doesn't really matter because it's become pretty obvious in the last year or so that no one here really gives two shits about me or my feelings or that I bend over backwards to try to please them, to no avail because every other weekend I go on Facebook to see they're doing some other fun thing without me for no good reason.
b) I'm very strongly considering going to school in DC, partly for the express purpose of being far away from home. And then my parents are going to move down the street. This could be good, in case I hate being away, because my parents will be right there if I need anything. Also if they live close enough to campus, I could possibly live with them (which isn't so bad, I've learned, because they work alllllll day) and save some serious cash. Even if it is their money technically, sort of.
c) they apparently had the opportunity to do this when I was in high school, which would have been awesome. I had a lot of problems in my freshman/sophomore years that I honestly think would have been lessened if I'd had the chance to start over fresh somewhere else. They didn't do it, though, BECAUSE I was in high school and BECAUSE I was having those problems. Naturally.
