heres a word of advice from someone who's been there. never place all your potential happiness on something happening. because nothing can give that to you. moving away may not be all you expected it to be. your new job will bring its own troubles. and lets say you achieve everything you want to do in the next few months? what will make you happy then? youll have to either look forward to something new (which will put you in the same boat youre in now) or you can sit back and be happy about the accomplishments youve made. that is a secret to being happy. taking joy in the things youve done. and that can start now.
