When I get older, should I move somewhere warm, like California, or should I stay in Iowa?
Reviewing your choices
Pros: It will be warm/ hot all year around which I love.
Cons: The traffic is horrible. I wouldn't get to see my family as often.
Evaluate the consequences
I would have to make new friends because I wouldn't have any in California.
I would have to take all my belongings with me.
I wouldn't get to see my family as often.
Assess and choose the best option .
I think the best option is to move to California, and if it doesn't work out, I can always move back.
Think it over afterward.
Although I miss my family, I think moving here was a good choice. And if anything bad happens, I can talk through everything with my parents and ask then what they think about me staying here or moving back.
