Update #14: Big Announcement (+first Vlog)!

Hey Guys! How is everyone doing? It’s been a really long time (almost five months) since my last post. There has been a lot of things going on with my life, which is usually how these update posts start. For real though! There really has a lot going on!

I have some awesome news to share with you, drum roll please: I’m moving! Not just moving down the road, relocating! To Columbus! Here is a quick video update if you don’t want to read my lengthy post:

I’ll try and make the writing quick and also recap what I talked about in the video.

I know what everyone is thinking: how can you be THAT busy for four, almost five, months. Here’s how: my last post was on April 8th. I went on my first real vacation in almost 6 years from April 19th through the 24th. I got home, unpacked, then packed up again for a business trip from April 30th through May 5th. All of May, I had a stretch assignment I was working on in addition to my work-work. Then, on May 30th, I began the interviewing process. Over the next seven weeks, I went through two phone interviews and three in person/virtual interviews (including a original presentation) until I finally found out that I got the job at the end of July and received my official start date. The rest of July and most of August has been spent looking for apartments, figuring out finances, and wrapping up my current work, in addition to my normal life. Needless to say, I haven’t had much time to create content and share with you. I’ve also had a few custom orders from my Etsy that I had to get done and mail out. It’s been an exhausting, but exciting, last couple months.

I just wanted to give a quick update and let you know that my posts over the next month or so are going to be dedicated to my relocation experience. I’m going to start making short videos to go along with my move experience for those of you who don’t like reading my not-so-greatly written posts. Let’s face it, I’m no Shakespeare. I’m also very awkward in videos…

This blog, my blog, has always been about me sharing my projects and experiences in the hopes to inspire others. I try and make the content as relateable as possible and relevant to what is going on in my life. As much as my dad tells my I’m special, I’m an average person. I have a 40 hour/week job and I don’t have an endless bank account. I’ve got student loan debt that I’ll be paying on for the next million years and I still have to call my mom if I don’t know how to do adult things (like picking out medical insurance). If you can related to this, then you’ve come to the right place!

As I said, over the next month or so I’ll be sharing all the important milestones along my relocation journey. If you’ve taken this journey before or you’re thinking about taking this journey, don’t be afraid to leave a comment! Let’s share the excitement and frustrations together!

I’m feeling so many emotions! I’m nervous and excited. I can’t wait to share!

Talk soon,
Jennifer
