I moved to Cali.
I can't even believe I'm typing those words.
I started my new job a few weeks ago and it's been great.
It's fast pace and can be a little hectic at times (i.e. breaking political news), but I love the videos that I get to produce and edit.
It's been great getting to know my co-workers.
And everyone's been super helpful and welcoming.
I love having so many people around my age to work with.
But I'm not going to lie, this move was a bit challenging.
I think I handled it pretty well, the most stressful part about California is parking.
I have anxiety thinking about moving my car! The idea of walking at night has me nervous which is why I don't drive as much as I should.
But now that I know my way around a little bit, and remember how to parallel park, I do feel a bit better.
But I am happy!
Work is challenging, but in a good way. It makes me think differently, and I feel as if I'm constantly improving in the stories that I pitch and my video editing skills.
Butttttt I don't want to get ahead of myself, I've only been here for three weeks.
I've connected with some Auburn grads and made some new friends, which is good.
Because, even though I put up a front, I actually miss my family a bit (but I'm not going to tell them that :P
Besides the weather and my new job, the best part of LA has been the food.
Also, I have a killer view from my apartment.
Let's actually praise the Lord for a second because this whole adulting thing???
WHEW. Can't believe I'm actually doing it.
Anyways, if you've been wondering, I'm doing alright!
There have been some hard days, but I just think about all of the blessings and wonderful opportunities God has given me, and I can't help but smile.
