I'm Leaving Hoboken

| | Comments (1)

Hi everyone, you may have noticed that I haven't been updating the site for the past few days.

I have been very busy with a few things, and one of those things is a new job offer I got with my company (which I keep off these forums). They want me to move to the London office effective immediately, to head up a department there. It was an offer that I simply could not refuse, the effect it will have on my career is staggering.

It took me a long time to think about this, and I had to consider the pro's and con's to the situation. Going to London is a big step, but I figure that since I am young and single, with nothing tying me down in the states - I should take that risk and go for it.

What saddens me most is that i'm leaving Hoboken, my residence of the last 10 years. I can't believe I have been living here for so long and I have made a lot of friendships all this time. The hardest part of my decision was leaving the "small-town" feeling that Hoboken has, the friends I have made and how much I love New York City.

If someone asked me to move to any other city, I don't think I would be interested. If you know me, you know that I simply love everything about London - the culture, the music, the TV shows & movies. Plus London is the epicenter of Europe - a gateway to travelling around the other countries, and only a hop away from my favorite country, Italy. Plus I will be finally able to see Ireland, and visit another country that is part of my heritage.

I will be opening up a new blog called "philly2london.com" and I will be documenting my journey for all of you to read.

I really would like to take a moment to thank some Hobokenites that made me incredibly happy over the last 10 years, along with my family members....

HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY!


Actually some of you may know that I was going to be sent to London last summer, so i'm sure I had to fool some of you. Nah, you are still stuck with me. Have a great weekend!!

Furey,
Cute April Fools Joke. I was nearly crying in sadness to you (!!!???!!!) when I continued on to the rest and saw that you are staying. What would the Hobokeni bulletin boards (and the nightlife) be without you?

Truly,
Hoboken_Michael
