Hey Gasomeday,
I lived in upstate NY all my life until about 3½ years ago. I finally decided to move to Maryland. I left a great job and great paying job at Xerox Corp. after 13 years. I figured I would retire from them. They would not transfer me due to cut backs in the area that I wanted to move to. So I decided that I would find a new job and move anyway. A job should never hold one back from doing what one wants to do in life.
Yes I took a lower paying job, however I am almost back up to my Xerox pay and am happy here. I am looking to move though to Ga also. I have friends there and possible employment opportunities, so I figured hey, why not move again. I have no ties, I am single and I left my family in NY. I see them a few times a year. And with me moving, it gave my friends and family in NY a place to visit that they have not been to before.
Good luck and go for it. You are still young and single and able to do it. I am older and single and still able. Millions of people do the moving thing every day of the year.
Good Luck,

All the best! You're young, if you find out GA isn't for you, you can always move back. I moved back to Atlanta after living in DC/MD for about 6 years & I wish I'd done it sooner. I moved "cold turkey", with no job, apt. etc. Worked retail (lots of those here) for a month, then landed something better. I bought a place in less than a year (with DC prices, NEVER would have happened) and haven't looked back since!
Go for it, at least you can then look back and say you tried.....

Im not sure if anyone answered your school question. I go to Kennesaw State in Cobb county, but Ga State is also worth looking into. I commute to Kennesaw, but it works for me.

Take the chance. GA is probably much cheaper than MD

I live in MD as well. am in a similar situation. however i do have a son whom i haven't seen in a year because his mother is not answering my calls. she moved and wont tell me where. anyways, i am involved with music and have been told by many that i am really talented. i believe in myself as well. atlanta offers more opportunity for my music that maryland does. also, i have family in georgia. more specifically a close cousin of mine. i havent spoken to him yet about it, but i'm considering staying with hime till i save up to get my own place. already found some promising jobs down there. i have a reliable car. its just a matter of should i do it. life in maryland has gotten really crazy for me and i really need to clear my head b4 i go insane. and i think a change of location would do me a world of good. plus i hate the weather here. lol i've been to atlanta once and i liked it. change is scary. its normal to be scared because ur not sure of the outcome or what to expect. but if u feel u'd be happier there, i'd say do it. my situation is a little tougher because i have a son in maryland. but id say go for it. life is short. its better to say "i tried and it didnt' work" than to say "i never tried. i wonder if it would've worked".
