I hate it that i can't have it my way

I'm about to stop being a graduate student -- after 11 years, one phd and 1 masters -- and all i want to do is finally reclaim new york city as MY CITY -- the city that i moved to to live in more than 10 years ago. I haven't had a "normal life" in the last three years and looking forward to livign and working in new york city has been my dream and the thing keeping me going.

my husband has been out of work for the past year and a half, and has just had a very successful interview .. in boston.

so -- as a good wife, I am supportive and happy for him, but i can't be happy for moving to boston. i don't wan to live in boston. i don't want to move. i don't want to leave new york when i'm almost ready to really live here.

even though my husband has living in new york all of his adult life, he doesn't have any sentiment for the city. but I do. and for me leaving now means leaving my dream, the dream that I managed to happen for myself.

i don't want to move. i wish my husband would focus -- really focus -- on jobs in the area. his priority at this point is any job is the best job, and I get it, and I also get that I must compromise after he supported me (financially and mostly emotionall) through graduate school, it's my turn now
