question of the weekend: Can moving solve all your problems?
Jezebel asked the question this week in reference to poor Lindsay Lohan and her planned move from Los Angeles to New York in the wake of her release from a brief jail-and-rehab stint. Lohan has deeper and tougher problems than most of us, perhaps — and unfortunately they seem to be the kind of problems you can’t run away from — but the question is worth asking of anyone.
Can moving solve all your problems?
It’s something I’ve certainly been thinking about of late. Where I’m living now represents my longest stretch living in the same place as an adult (and even as kid, but I don’t count that because it wasn’t anything I had any control over). Next spring it’ll be nine years I’ve been in this apartment, and I’m ready for a change. It’s not just my apartment: I feel like my whole life is in a rut and could do with a major boot in the ass to get things moving again. I do believe that, in the immortal words of Buckaroo Banzai, no matter where you go, there you are. But I also think that a change of scenery and routine can be a good way to shake yourself up.
What do you think? Have you ever moved just to get your ass in gear again? Did it work… or do you regret it? Have you ever thought about moving — new house/apartment, new city, or new country, even — just for a change?
