I leave for the East Coast tomorrow morning (early). Baltimore, New York, Washington, West Virginia, not necessarily in that order. Traveling gives me an excuse to buy socks and underwear (as if I needed one) so now I own a pair of Hello Kitty pink check-print knickers with Hello Kitty herself on the front, holding an ice-cream, and saying: “MMMM! A Yummy Treat!”. Also, polka-dot boxer shorts and a pair of pink ruffled knickers with appliqué flowers.
I have been offered a permanent, full-time job at the porn company (a package! With benefits! And higher pay than I currently receive!). They are willing to help me with visa issues in any way they can. They are willing to hold the position open for me while I go home at the end of the year (on the assumption that I will come back). Holy hell, I have no idea how to make this decision. Perfect, interesting, entertaining job with much room for advancement? Or home, where my people are and my heart is?
How do people do this? Just thinking about it rips me apart.
(there is only one thing for it: you’re all going to have to move here.)
