Nothing like a short hiatus to help your figure your life out. I recently helped my boyfriend, Jason move to Nashville, Tennessee. While I was out there I have accepted a job offer to work in the marketing department of a company and found a place to live. So I am moving to Nashville myself next month, and my life is about to change forever.
Why Nashville? Nashville has always been special to me. I remember visiting my best friend there her sophomore year of college and saying, “I’m going to live here one day.” Since the first time I visited, I just knew in my heart I was meant to be there. It’s the perfect mix of city and suburban which is what I’m used to and feel comfortable with.
I have a musical past, I worked with talented artists for years and even was a concert promoter for a venue. Irony is that, I hate country music (sorry country music fans) but I can’t stand to listen to it. But I am looking forward to discovering talent, and checking out new venues and open mic shows! Who knows maybe I’ll start another music blog out there.
One reality that has been hitting me hard is the fact I have to do everything myself. There is so much planning going into my move, and thank goodness for my loving and supportive parents guiding me through this. I have to find doctors for everything, including eyes and asthma, as well as finding a dentist all under my insurance plan. I just purchased a car and having to make sure I have all my paper work in check to when I go out there. There is a lot to get done, and handle, but this is “adulting” figuring it all out by myself. It’s a lot to do, but it has to get done and I will do what I need to do.
This is growing up, moving to a new city, starting a new job, and finding new friends. I think with all of this I have learned, that it’s okay to be scared and that this will only help myself to a better future. I’m excited to see where this will take me! Thank you all for the love & support.
