My partner, Vince, plus I recently moved up north in order to grow my partner’s business.
It was a actually hard decision for us to make because my friend and I both grew up down south, plus both of our families are down south.
My nice friend and I have been up here for about nine months now, plus it has honestly been quite a shock for us. It almost felt like my friend and I were moving to a different culture. I am starting to get used to the ways of the northerners, although I do not suppose that I will ever absolutely fit in. The hardest part about moving for us was actually not the difference in the “culture” however rather the difference in the weather conditions. My nice friend and I were used to only turning on the furnace for about a month plus a half per year. Now, my friend and I have to keep the furnace running for more than half of the year. It is just so cold. I find myself getting sick a lot more often, plus I assume, it is because of how cold it is here. Our living room used to get absolutely cold during the evenings, so my friend and I obtained an electric furnace to help put off some more heat. I turn it on about three hours before my friend and I plan to go to bed, plus the room is nice plus toasty by the time my friend and I are ready for bed. I told my partner about how much I hate the cold, plus he totally agreed with me. I thought he would like it because he was always complaining about the heat down south, but he actually misses the heat now. All in all, my friend and I are getting used to our up-to-date place of residing, however I’m not sure that it will ever feel like home.
