This past week has been hard on me physically because my allergies bothered me. My allergies are constant and are always a worry and concern, but around this time of the year my allergies are at a peak. It was also this past week when I finally decided to stop delaying moving out of my current home.
Even though I’ve had it suffering from allergies, there are still a few problems when it comes to moving right now. The first problem is obvious: Covid-19. Cases are breaking out more and more and, as states start to shut back down, I may need to delay moving until cases drop again. I know the area I need to move to, but I’m worried about moving there because there is an increase of cases of Covid-19 in the area I plan to be moving to. So, I’m not sure if it’s a good idea at all to move before cases calm down within a certain amount of time.
The second reason is because I don’t have a job in the area where I plan to move to. Since Covid-19 has made many jobs I would normally take scarce, I will need to get a job in different field of work than I’m used to. There is always a chance I find a job located in the area where I want to move to and work remotely until the time comes to move, but I’m not sure about this. I feel like I’m asking a lot of my future employer to do this, but then again I’ve seen stranger things happen in my life. Being cured from an antibiotic resistant infection is one of them.
The third problem is I don’t have the money to buy a new home right now. I could rent an apartment, but I want to be a homeowner. Being a homeowner is also more important to me right now because it gives me more space between my neighbors than an apartment does. (Very important in the age of Covid-19) That being said, if I’m going to a new area, I think it may be better for me in the long run if I rent an apartment and buy a home after I know more about the area and if I will be staying there for a long time.
I have a lot to think about as I move into this next stage of my life. I really don’t know what I will ultimately decide on, but I know I’ll need to start making plans now… even if those plans aren’t certain and look more like a rough draft than an actual goal.
