Since my last update, drum roll please....I got my first big girl job! Oh yeah, and moved away from home (as in Fresno). Pretty much the biggest life decision I've had to make so far. Leaving the only place I've ever lived, my security blanket of North Fresno, and both of my parents was definitely the hardest part of this big change in my life. I was so unsure about everything at first...Was I going to like it? Would I make friends? Would I like my job? What if I hate it? (plus a million more questions just like these).
Thankfully, everything is great over here in good ole' Mo Hill, California. I knew very little about the place I was about to move to, but turns out Morgan Hill is a beautiful, quaint little town in the South Bay Area full of wineries and...mushrooms (yes, mushrooms). I love love LOVE my job and the people I work with. I am so lucky to have found a job as an Event Coordinator for one of the leading bicycle companies in the world fresh out of college. Specialized is an amazing company to work for...filled with amazing, passionate people who I have already grown to love.
Being on my own has probably been the biggest wake up call of all. I am so grateful that I have the best parents who taught me valuable lessons about responsibility while growing up. Every day that I wake up in my little studio apartment I feel a sense of pride that I am able to be on my own and pay my own bills (I'm humming the song "Bills" by Destiny's Child in my head right now). ;)
Until next time,
