Jul. 14th, 2016

Sunday or Monday night, I had this sudden thought, bell-like in its clarity and force,
"What if we just moved back to Arkansas, buy a way nicer house than we'd be able to afford here in LA, and enjoy living?"

It's very appealing. In my mind, I'm already checked out. Every time some minor drama has popped up this week, I have mentally rejected it, without paying much heed to the long-term consequences.

I want to start my family before I'm too much older. I swore as a kid that I wouldn't have children as late as my parents had me, where they began to succumb to arthritis and old age when I still wanted to play, be active with them. It's starting to seem like a narrow window if I have to wait until I can get to the point I want to be financially out here.

Very compelling daydream

Sounds compelling, especially the "enjoy living" part.

What would you do in Arkansas?

The same thing, I think. There are quite a few tech companies in the area I went to college, so it should be easy to find another job in qa

Then why not?! :)

(is easy to say on the other side of the world where prices for housing are probably like they are in California, unfortunately I don't see where I could go to have that "enjoy living" and get a nice house)
