With my lease ending in June and a good friend trying to get me to move where she's at I gave the thought of moving.
Once a thought is placed in your head its really hard to get out. It started as what the hell to I'm going to do it. My friend Katie keeps trying to get me out to Detroit. I called corporate and looked into what stores needs an installer. As I found out Detroit doesn't have a Container Store so that was a no-go.
Katie tried to convince me to go with another job but I don't think I could leave TCS (The Container Store) I've been with them for 3 years and it feels good to know I'm an expert at what I do. I really do not want to go back to square one trying to learn a new trade. This is stable work and I enjoy it a lot! That and it pays well enough that it will keep me from looking at anything else.
So when I called corporate I looked in to the locations that need an installer. Washington DC (been there done that) L.A (been there done that) Boston (too far) and Las Vegas. I've always thought about moving to Vegas. Not for the City but for the weather and the people. I have a good friend, my old roommate from DC and a old good friend from LA. Both I have not seen in quite some time.
So I think I'm going to do it. I've looked online and it looks like the economy is turning around and it would be nice to get in while rent is so much cheaper. Its a new store opening May 12 so it will have to be a quick move. The only thing thats going to hold me back is if I can afford the move. For I do not know how busy I will be. You never know, maybe a casino wants all new closets?
The more I look at it the more it looks even better. I have enough to live on for 4-5 months with minimal work till the main sale starts.
So tomorrow I'm going to let corporate know that I'll take it.
Time to get packing
