Here we are with summer fast coming to an end! And I have news! I have a job! Yes, I am rejoining the realm of the working. While I’m sad to see my time off come to an end (I didn’t accomplish nearly what I wanted to) I am glad I don’t have to stress about finding a job.
Finding a job was stressful!! A lot of unknowns. A lot of waiting. A lot of rejection. In the end I had a few different options in different parts of the US. I had lists upon lists of pros and cons. And my decision? I’m leaving St Louis and heading back to the Pacific Northwest, albeit a little bit south of my old stomping grounds. I’m off to Portland, OR!
Time will tell if I made the right decision. I’ve had a few moments doubt but overall I’ve been at peace with what I decided.
Now my days are full of boxes and trying to do all the last-minute St Louis things. I will miss St Louis. I will really miss Forest Park. If I could only move Forest Park with me, but sadly it won’t fit in a box.
