Those of you who are Facebook friends with me already know this but I thought I should make an announcement here, seeing how

1. I'll be passing my TEN YEAR DDN anniversary in a few months
2. I literally met my best friend here (shout out to YYD)

After 2.5 years of being long-distance (east coast/west coast) with the boyfriend, I am moving to New York.

I found out this week that I have been accepted at Columbia for the combined BS/MS program in nursing, which starts at the end of May. I'm hoping to eventually get my DNP and become a nurse practitioner.

I grew up in SoCal so this is HUGE for me.

OMG that's so exciting! Not the missing YYD, but a new city, a new course of study, that's such good news and such an adventure, good for you and all the best in this new chapter of your life :)

Do you realize you and I joined DDN at around the same time?

I hit my ten-year last summer and I don't think I'll ever stop coming here just so I can keep up with everyone's lives. :)

I'm super excited for you, what a wonderful adventure! You have an amazing future ahead. :) And also super happy for you that you'll be close to your sweetie.

We met on DDN and we would have hour long chats with our friend Defyinggravity. We would talk on a Aim for like hours!

The crazy thing is, we grew up, knowing each other as teens going through high school...majored in something other then nursing as a university student. Now DG is a nurse, which she pursued after college. Now Iliah is starting her nursing at Colombia, and I am finishing my prereq courses for nursing.

I can't help think that we molded each other's minds growing up or had aliens remove our brains and program them unto the same path. ( I'm watching too many Scifi shows)

I can't believe DDN chat brought us together, and we found best friends on this website.

I hope you love NY.... I do!

Yay Haili!
Super excited for you.

Is it weird that we are all grown ups?

Update:

I booked my ONE WAY FLIGHT for 5/14 next month.

I paid the first month rent/deposit for my new place.

This is really happening!

There is going to be so many tears tomorrow. Iliah came to visit me this past week for the last time before she moves to the East Coast. Tomorrow morning she is departing! :(

You guys need to take great care of her when she is on the East Coast! I would say she is my most prized possession but that would totally be inappropriate...considering she isn't a pet.

Speaking of pets, I'm sorry that my cat was an asshole and he sat on your face in the middle of the night. I am not sure if a cat butt alarm clock is how you wanted to spend your vacation.

Where ya moving to? I'll be in NY this weekend (too early for you) but I'll be back again in a month for my brother's graduation. Would be fun to grab coffee, or NY stuff like pizza or bagels, lol.

I'm waiting for like 15 packages to be shipped to my new place, which is looking more and more like a tornado hit it.

LOL.
