New Things

I wouldn't have thought that I would be starting my career in Birmingham, AL but here I am. I grew up here... I never wanted to live here after high school! After college I moved to NYC for an internship and planned on staying after. I love New York and I loved living there but it wasn't right for me. I had a job, friends, and I even signed a lease on an apartment that I loved. The day I signed my lease I went back to the place I was staying and it hit me. I can't describe that moment but I knew I couldn't stay in New York. 

A few weeks later and I was on a plane home. To the place I didn't ever think I would be. To the place I wrote about in my journals that I didn't want to end up after college. But I was on my way back. After months of searching and interviewing I found a job. These past (almost) 2 years since being home have been amazing. I have met amazing people, challenged myself, traveled a lot, and learned more than I ever thought I would. 

Some of you might know me from my old blog. I started that blog in college as a way to meet new people. People that had the same interests and passions as I did. I loved having an outlet to express myself and I want that again. I realize now that a lot of those people I wanted to meet were right outside my door. You can live your dreams no matter where you live (you might have to move eventually), but often you don't need to go miles to find what you are looking for. Enjoy where you are. Work hard. Challenge yourself. Make it happen. 

I am excited to see what the future holds and to start sharing my journey here. I still have a long way to go but you have to start somewhere.

I agree a lot we what you just said. Challenging yourself is super important. Travelling and experiencing different things are very important in life. I believe is about experiences and moments. For me moving to London one year ago was the best desision I could take :)
