Yeah, I said it.
I left Los Angeles in May 2005 with $44 in my name and my fingers crossed that my 1988 Honda Civic could make it through the Rocky Mountains.
After spending the summer interning in Denver, I settled in my home away from home, New York City.
But with my college degree in the mail and my professional career established, it's time to head back West.
Home of the palm trees and the chicken and waffles.
(And really, there is no comparison to women in Los Angeles. Woof, woof, New York.)
There is just one problem.
I'm at a company now that has an office out in Los Angeles but my team is located mostly in Washington, D.C.
I'm faced with the challenge of making a compelling case as to why it would make sense for me to relocate.
And then there is the situation as to what happens if they say no to my relocation request?
Do I stay in a city that I'm growing to hate on a daily basis or do I pack my things and hope to find a new gig in LaLa land?
Don't worry Darren, I'm not leaving you just yet. continue...
