I created this post on May 12. The day that I quit my job of 4 years. I decided to move my entire life from Denver which has been home to me for 24 years to Chicago, Illinois. I just let this post sit here in the draft box for 2 months because I was unsure if I should share blog posts about my life and experiences with everyone- you can choose to follow if you'd like. Here I am though back at it because this is something that I have been wanting to pursue for sometime. I consider it a form of journalism mainly using photos - if I feel like writing something I will. I personally want to catalog digitally this new adventure I've got going for myself.
I have been in Chicago for 2 months and 6 days- yes I'm counting and yes Fiji is with me (my Cat)! Recently I have been feeling so incredibly thankful for all the support I have had with this move. This has been the best change that I have been able to control for myself! For once I did something for me. I just wanted to thank; my mom who has taught me to continue to go for the things I want in life and has encouraged me to chase them, my Dad who has been helping me settle in & has been with me through this all, my siblings who continue to send me memes and check in on me, my Denver friends who told me to take the opportunity to work on my photography in a place that has more opportunity, my Chicago friends who have made me feel at home from day one. Really to everyone who has said to me "you can do this", you were right and I thank you for being my rocks and reason for success.
I miss Denver like crazy. But Chicago has given me some amazing experiences so far that I should of blogged about but I didn't cause real life had me busy. I'm glad I am here. I've been pursuing photography working with Fashion and Music. I'm looking forward to my new life here and what I can accomplish in the next several days, weeks, months, years!
