The Most Important Move of My Life

Sorry for the month-long silence (never have I gone this long without a post). I have a good excuse though.

I made a huge move this last month . . . and it has absolutely nothing to do with chess! I have moved from the Washington, DC metropolitan area (where I was born, raised, educated and had lived consistently for the last 29 years!) to Philadelphia.

I am on Day 2 of my move, needless to say that I am a little overwhelmed. Philadelphia is nothing like Washington, and I am just shocked by how big of a city Philly is. I definitely feel like a small fish in a very big ocean. The fact that (outside of my new work colleagues) I don't know a single person in the area is also nerve-wracking . . . I already miss my family and friends back home and I have only been here two days!

Well, the lonely days ahead means lots more chess (yes, my life is sad!). Who needs friends or family when you have exciting correspondence games on! Friends, schmends. Chess will fill the voids . . . please God, let chess fill the voids . . . .

Well good luck in Philly. I'm sure they have a decent chess club. I'm from North Jersey originally, so we don't traditionally like Philly (or LA) ;)

You are absolutely right. Some hoe I missed this. Thanks, I'll fix it when I get a chance.

I just got back from a week long stay in Philly. Very different from California, very different. But I liked it very much. The weather's not so good, but Univ-Pennsylvania is amazing!

Hope you like the new place.
