I'm on top of the world right now. In spite of my temp position ending and once again searching for work, things have been looking up as of late. I called the second office of the company I worked for, which resides in San Antonio, Texas. (After several weeks of looking again here in the northeast, I decided to take drastic measures.) I gave them my resume, and filled out applications. Literally, the second I got off the phone with the office director in Texas, my best friend Erin called. She and her new husband obtained a rental house 45 minutes from me.

"We're looking for a roommate to help cut some costs, and the only person we thought of is you," she said. "We'd love to have you."

I took a day to think about it, debating on moving down south alone, (oh the adventure!) or having my first moving venture be renting a house with my friends 45 minutes away. "Moving with Erin doesn't have to be forever," my brother advised. "I think this is a great stepping stone and a way to save money. THEN you can have your adventure." He was right. I took up Erin's offer. And so, with no concrete plan in place, I will be moving out in the spring.

I am elated. It's funny how life works out.


  1. Yay! I am so glad this is working for you! It will be fun to live with friends. If you just couldn't get a good, happy feeling about TX, then it probably isn't the answer for you now. Keep us updated!

  2. Thanks Hayley! I'll defnitely keep everyone posted.
