I normally do not attend the monthly potluck, but I enjoyed this one. I am a private person and this apartment complex does not offer the privacy I like. I think it is because it is one building with all apartment entrances inside. It gives the feeling of a dorm rather than an apartment. That is why I will move next spring. Most people do not understand me and my idiosyncrasies. But at my advanced age I do not feel the need to explain them.
Looking for new place is easy and hard. I search the internet, but they always present the best of pictures of their properties. A visit might reveal a fresh look. Since I want to relocate to Jacksonville, I doubt I will be able to go there more than once, so I must plan and eliminate before I go.
Many people here do not understand why I want leave. They do not really know my past of periodic moving to experience new adventures. Most of my friends are native to this area and have never wanted to move. That makes it harder for them to understand my wanderlust.
But I feel that I must move to another place again. I hope one day I am satisfied with my home and can stay. I am getting older by the day and need to find it soon. I picked Jacksonville because 5 years ago that was where I was going to move. I was lured away from my goal by promises that did not come true. In the last 5 years I have been coming full circle. I hope Jacksonville will be the final location for me. Keep your fingers crossed for me, OK?
