Well it has been an extra busy couple of months! Market season is officially underway and we finally got our house up for sale! This has been something boiling up inside me for awhile. I've been wanting to get out of the Philadelphia area. This was never a place I wanted to settle, but you you know how it goes...Andrew got a job right out of college naturally I followed him out here once I was finished my internship for school. I'm not going to lie, it has been a real struggle for me. I don't like the hustle and bustle. It makes me anxious, and the traffic is terrible. People honking and riding your ass every day.
I had a couple of not so great jobs out here which made it worse. Then after quitting my second job, I found a good one working as a graphic designer. I worked hard and stayed at this company for about a year and then I started getting this itching feeling again. I always thought I would find a corporate gig, work in a cubicle and that would be that. Now, I'm really rethinking my life. Maybe it doesn't have to be this way...
So now Andrew and I are moving to Maine! We have only been there a couple of times; once visiting Acadia in the Fall and the second time was to go snowboarding in Camden...of course a blizzard would hit us when we were there in the winter. Regardless, I felt at home there. It was a new place for us. It was a place we could start a new life together. I think we need that.
We were lucky enough to work for such great companies that would allow us to work from home to make this happen. Andrew is going to stay full-time, but I will drop down to part time. I really want to be my own boss. I don't have an exact plan yet, but I think the fresh air will inspire me. I am hoping to continue photographing and doing markets to sell my images. I've been thinking about this a lot. It's what I think about when I wake up, all throughout the day, and when I go to sleep. Some people think you need a "real job", but you know what...I'm going to follow my gut on this one and see where it goes. If it doesn't work out, I'll be a lobsterman in Maine ;)
