Hi DKos community,
This is a slightly odd diary, but I've had a job offer from around Perry Point, MD and i'm trying to figure out if I could live there. I haven't actually seen the area yet - the interview was by phone, and I plan to request a chance to go down and look around before giving an answer. Hopefully they'll agree to that. The job itself sounds exciting and interesting to me, but I'm anxious about the location. I thought some of you might have some insight about that area - could a bisexual progressive writer of fiction (not the way I make a living) make a life around there, or would it involve lots of hour long drives to Baltimore to be happy? Not that I'm adverse to going into Baltimore, but I know I wouldn't have it in me to do an hour commute on a daily basis - it would have to be weekends only if I had to go to Baltimore for everything. I'm an introvert, and I know I have to really push myself to make an effort to meet people and build community, so if it's really hard to do, I could be in trouble. I'd be leaving a city that, on the one hand has not offered me a lot of stimulation, but on the other, has been my home for a very long time and I have close friends, so it's scary to think of moving where I know not a soul. Thoughts? Advice? Places to look at when I'm there?
