Hawaii in the next 10 years

I don't know when or exactly why, but somewhere between the time I was born until now, I decided that I was going to move to Hawaii and live out there for 5 years and then move back to New York before settling in perhaps another state that I found more suitable to my taste.

Don't get me wrong, I love New York, it's the state I was born and raised in and I can't live without the city life, I'm so use to it that it'd be impossible to move some place where everything closes at 6pm and there's no lights at night. I don't know why, but I figure that Hawaii would have some sort of night life, hopefully.

Well, I talked this over with my boyfriend, and to put it quite frankly, he liked the idea but didn't think it was practical. He wants to open up a car shop and work there as a mechanic and just picking up and leaving and moving out of state and kinda out of the country wouldn't work for his career choice. I understand that completely, but I hate being tied down to one place for too long with no real purpose or destination, such as New York, hence my transition to a college in Connecticut.
So, I made an agreement with him that we'd only live out there for 2 and a half years instead of the 5 I originally wanted to be out there for. (We naturally assume we'll be married by the time we make the transition.)

I guess in short, I'm coming to realize that I like to move around. I like switching it up, making a name for myself and then going somewhere and starting from scratch all over again. Prior to college I would have never said that. I thought I hated meeting people and getting acquainted with different groups, but I realized that when it comes to adjusting, I force myself to make friends with at least one person who I can share my thoughts with. I'm pretty good at just blabbing to people I don't really know to establish a connection and becoming friends with them afterwards. I just have to work on maintaining friendships. I'm not too good at that.

But I just figured that was something worth sharing or at least discovery about myself.
