yeah its risky, but i think i can adapt, and even though im averse to risk, ill take it if i feel itll improve my quality of life/make me happier

I hear you! I'm moving out of Arizona too, later this year, and moving to Florida. We are thinking of Tampa, Sebring, or Daytona Beach. We've been to all 3 about 4 times, in the past, and we loved it. Yeah, I'm with you on Arizona. It's not for me (never was, but we moved here because of his job here that he already had when I was in the Army).

I moved like this just a couple days after I turned 18. Couldn't wait to get out of my parents' house and away from the control of their religion (I was raised in a cult). They were living in eastern PA at the time, and two days after my 18th birthday I got up, packed a single suitcase, walked to the bank and withdrew the money I'd been saving for the occasion since I was 11 years old, and left on the next Greyhound out of town. Moved as far away as I could at the time (Northern Cali). Never went back. Never regretted it. Would do it again in a heartbeat, only I'd do it about two years sooner.

It wasn't PA that was cultish it was my ex-family. PA is actually a very pretty state.

Oh sure the landscape may be pretty but I'm usually focused on who's around me
I've heard more than once about cults in PA.
