Why I can't leave St. Louis.

Last night was one of those nights when I couldn't fall asleep because I had so many thoughts running through my head. They mostly involved the vastness of the world and how I want to see as much of it as I can. This then lead to a conclusion that I can't really appreciate a place while just zipping through as a tourist...I need to spend some time there to really get to know the place.

Then came a question to myself: if a situation came up where I was offered an awesome job somewhere else, whether in the States or not, would I take it? I think the conclusion I came to was that I probably wouldn't unless it was something I absolutely couldn't turn down...as in triple my salary or some other amazing benefit. I think this is because I have so much tied up in St. Louis...friends, family, school. I feel like I would need somebody really close to me to be in a place that I would consider moving to. The thought of starting a whole new life alone kinda scares me.

I guess that'll do for the random thought of the month.
