Update on my big girl life

So whoever is reading this, I would hope you know I have moved to San Diego, CA. If you didn't know this, we aren't really friends haha.

Anyways, here I am finishing up my third month in the beautiful San Diego. My life has transformed. I have gone from waitress to working in the events department for a non-profit. Pretty much starting out at the bottom of the chain but hopefully it will take me to the top one day somewhere, who knows where.

I like my job most days. I am still dealing with "the public" which is where most of my battles come into play. Since I have a degree in Communication, its hard to realize that not everyone understands the importance of communication. Also, 75% of the people do not read/follow directions so I have to contact them and instruct them personally. So realizing how much time I could save if people followed directions in the first place, makes me a little frustrated.

I am living with my aunt since San Diego is crazy expensive. Being a semi recent grad, a server before I arrived, and now starting at the bottom of the chain at a nonprofit, the funds aren't exactly there to be completely independent quite yet. I like to call it being smart, not dependent. I enjoy it for the most part. Thanks to my amazing parents, I have my car and all the important things I need to make my room my own.

I believe that making friends in a new city can be the hardest but most rewarding experience. You can completely reinvent yourself. I am unsure if I have completely done this but I am sure I have on some level. I am only 22, reinventing myself is a daily task. Being this age has taught me that I think I have life figured out but can change my mind in a second. Who knows where my life will take me, haven't I said this before?
