So far so good. No complaints. Affordable housing, a decent city, great people and cool views.
Good for you. How long did it take you to relocate again? I am annoyed by how expensive it is to live in my new state. I do not really care for the people that I've encountered thus far. What made you decide to relocate again and why Pittsburgh?

I have not done back to back moves. However my last move was on a whim. I had packed up and left the state without knowing where I wanted to move to. However I must add that my job follows me where ever I move to. I see nothing wrong with someone moving twice in a year providing they have the resources to do it with. If you are quitting a job to move and do not have something waiting at the other end you best have an explanation ready as it will raise a red flag when you interview for a new job.

You are fortunate to have a job that moves with you.

We moved twice within a year. We moved for my husbands job to NC from RI. He finished up one year and then was offered a job in SC. For us it was the best move. We were not very happy in NC and we are so much happier in SC. In fact we just bought a house and are in our 2nd year being here. I am very glad we made the two moves but it was brutal. I am sick of moving!!

Good for you!

I think I am going to let fate decide where I end up. I will be getting back into the job market in January and I will move where I find a job that suits me.
