If you’ve been keeping up with the blog you might have noticed I haven’t been posting as much lately, and that’s mainly due to me working a lot. I am currently working two jobs, a full-time job at an Engineering company and a part-time job in Human Resources which are totally different from each other. It’s been really hard trying to work, write for the blog, work on my creative projects and keep my sanity. The reason I’ve been working so much is because I plan to relocate in October to a different state.
My goal to relocate in October has been my main focus and in order to do that I have to reach my moving fund goal. Relocating for me is really a big deal because I’m moving to a bigger city where I only know a few people. On top of that I plan to move regardless if I find job before I leave. So I have to make sure that I’m financially secure for a couple of months until I’m able to find work.
So why am I’m taking this big risk? I’ll fill you in …
- I’ll be 25 in January and my goal was to be out of mothers home before my birthday. Yes I’ve been able to save money by staying here, but I feel it’s time to move on and be on my own.
- I’m really not happy in my current situation period, don’t get me wrong it’s not like things are really bad because they could be a lot worse, but I know I could be doing a lot better, and I feel this place doesn’t give me the opportunity to do so.
- I feel like with my degree in Media & Communication I’ll have a better chance to find work in my field in a bigger city. For the last 2 years since I’ve graduated I’ve been working at jobs that are not in my field at all. It’s been a great learning experience but I’m ready to do something that makes me happy.
- I’m ready to experience something new! I’m 24 I have no kids, no commitments, I have a degree, it’s time to spread my wings and just go.
I’ve gotten mixed responses from my friends about me relocating. Some think I’m crazy to move without having a job and move to a city where I hardly know anyone. I can care less, I am confident I’ll find job and I’m sure I’ll meet new people. If I can live in England for half a year I’m sure I’ll be fine.
I’m curious to hear what you all think about me moving. Would you take the risk and relocate to a big city without having a job in place first? Or do you think sometimes you just have to take a leap of faith?
