Getting it Together Thursdays: What’s Next
The hardest part about actually getting my life together, in a sense, was keeping it a secret. I dreamt of the day for so long where I would have a new job, would be leaving Pittsburgh, etc. etc. I truly thought it would never happen. I would get so frustrated and cry and feel like I wasn’t good enough to ever work anywhere else again nor was I really ready to freelance full time. I’m moving to San Francisco at the end of the month. I’ve wanted to move to SF for the past two years, to be completely honest.
I’m leaving social media, which took a lot of soul searching to feel like I was comfortable doing. Like I mentioned, I was feeling a little disenchanted with it, and even though I’m a marketer, I hated how it had just become all about making money and not about branding. I like to do both at the same time. If you couldn’t tell, I really try to limit the ads on Almost Getting it Together, I turn down sponsored posts and giveaways that don’t make sense, and really keep my social media profiles pretty focused. I’m all about the personal brand.
So, as you’re reading this, I’m either en route to San Francisco with my dad to look for an apartment or in San Francisco looking for an apartment and crying over the insane housing prices.
Commonly asked questions:
How are your dad/grandparents/family handling it?
Dad and I had a total crying fit on Friday because I mean, we’re best friends and all. He is excited that I will “be so close to Hawaii”. He’s already talking surf trips so it’s cool. My family is worried I will no longer like Pittsburgh sports but promise to visit lots.
Are you sad to be leaving your friends?
Uh, duh. I feel like in the past year I really found my groove and core group of friends whom I actually like in Pittsburgh. There have been a lot of emotional text conversations with all my friends and apparently, two bouts of crying with Angela on Sunday night. Also, my apartment is always open to everyone who wants to visit. Please do so frequently. I promise to feed you well.
So like, I’m trying to be an adult and getting it together. Don’t worry though, I won’t have it all together, I can’t change this blog name.
Chat with me:
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF MY NEWS? Do you live in SF? Do you want to be my friend? (I am totally looking for friends right now haha.)
