So it’s been 5 days since I’ve had the motivation to write. Napping really does become a daily occurrence when you’re unemployed. And has been quite the distraction. I’ve got to get back on a normal schedule. I’ve been spending my days doing yard work, job applications, binge watching New Girl and clearly, napping. (New Girl is SO GOOD!)
I did have a revelation the other day. I spoke with my mentor Iris from Career Contessa and she opened my eyes to something. I constantly think about moving to a big city, working for a Fortune 100 company and living the city life for a year. Then I think about how much I love East Lansing and the surrounding areas, the growth that is happening and being close to campus. I can’t seem to find a happy medium. But after my talk with Iris, she made me realize, that because I think about it often, why shouldn’t I do it? That’s my answer! So I made the call to be open to relocation. I can always bring me experience back to the East Lansing area or anywhere in Michigan. I love this state. But now may just be the perfect time to step out of my comfort zone once again.
I know, it’s a crazy thought. But I think that this is the time in my life to do it. I’m not tied down, I’m about as single as they come, and I do love a good adventure. (As long as it doesn’t involve camping, snakes or minimal cell service.) The one thing that concerns me about moving is how my cats will take it. Yeah, I’m aware of how ridiculous that sounds.
With that said, there are a few cities that I quickly fell in love with when visiting: Washington D.C., Boston, Manhattan Beach(outer LA) and Jacksonville, FL because I have family close. If anyone hears of any recruiting, training & development or event director roles, keep me in the loop!
