Save the Date: Going Away Party
Benji and I are moving! Help us say goodbye at our party on August 5th.
I hope you all enjoyed the day off on Tuesday! Some friends and I celebrated Independence Day at the FSU Reservation. It was actually such a fun time and I really recommend a visit before Summer ends. It’s free for FSU students and usually just $5 (cash) for members of the public.
One month from now, Benji and I will be saying goodbye to Tallahassee and trekking down to Central Florida. We plan to stay there until February and then make the move to DC! We both work remotely, so we’ll keep our jobs and stay there until we figure out what’s next — law school, starting a family, or something else! We’re both incredibly excited, but it’s still bittersweet leaving. Tallahassee was our home for almost 10 years.
I did the best I could to leave Tallahassee better than I found it and hope our city will be in a better place if/when Benji and I ever decide to move back.
Before leaving, we’re throwing a going away party on August 5, 2023. Please save the date! More details will be coming soon.
PS: I’m growing increasingly worried about the extreme heat events happening across the State and country. I’m not sure if there’s enough appetite within the local or State Democratic Party to address this issue (or the absence of utility debt relief programs), but something must be done to protect our neighbors who can't afford to keep the lights this Summer. If anyone has been thinking about this too, please lmk!
