Do you think it's stupid that you have to travel across Canada to get to Alaska and then you're in the United States again?

I'm in a different financial situation now and the money I'm putting into this is to improve my quality of life and put myself in a position where I need to do better. I'm cheap with money, I only want to make some kind of long term investment.

Enrique! dang. It does not sound all that happy, but... it could be! Alaska, hell yes.

WHEN ARE YOU LEAVING?

You will have to. When you stand in the woods in Alaska. You need headphones and music.

I'm scared, especially of the first month or so, but I absolutely have to do it. I don't think there's any chance my depression will end or my life will improve here. My flight is on July 10th, I'm going to Anchorage. Everything is booked. And of course you can come visit! Going skiing and break our legs together!

No and given the name it sounds like something I shouldn't read because it will scare me away from this idea.

enrique, you're beautiful and i love you. no sarcasm.
this is inspiring.

i don't want to come off as the guy who thinks he'd reached enlightenment or anything, but i've done pretty much what just you're talking about, only somewhat less cool. i moved to china. but, it was still wholly crazily uncharted territory, in the wake of brutal heartbreak, and it has been a skin-shedding complete mindfuck crazy progress of a process. if you need to, let yourself burn down to ashes when you go there. but keep going. embrace it and smell the flowers. i'm honestly excited for you and what you may find.

if it's worth anything, i honestly believe you are doing the right thing

Idk, moving to a different country where you don't know the language seems pretty rad. I'll be fine. I have enough money to last me through at least the end of the year so I don't think I'll burn down to ashes. But living with strangers, not knowing what gonna happen in the coming weeks after I land is scary and will be emotionally tough but I'm convinced it will drive me to constantly want to improve my life because I wont want to be scared forever.

Thanks for the encouragement. I'll probably be lonely enough to come back here. I don't want to tell my friend until I'm well into being settled.

so do I. not just because Alaska has been on my fantasy-life-list for a long time.

at some point, when you realize the life you live and the place you are in, are making you miserable, or keeping you miserable, AND you have the option to try something else - hell yes, go for it.
