D.C. ended up growing on me, and I decided to stay for a few more years. It was a completely different experience for me to grow up in the D.C. burbs vs. being a young professional in the city, and I fell in love with my hometown yet again. There were a lot of good things about D.C.: the number of opportunities I had for both my old career and my blog was incredible, and there was always something fun going on in town. However, the fast-paced nature of the town and the high cost of, well, everything, started to wear me down.
I needed a change. I needed to get out of my hometown. I lived in Philly for two years during college, and I loved it. Rent prices are a lot lower, the food is incredible, and people just seemed a little more laid back. Last spring, I decided to pack up my entire life and make the move.
And here I am. A year later. And I’m moving yet again. Disclaimer: nothing bad happened to me when I was in Philly, and I don’t regret the move at all. Long story short, I just realized that it makes zero sense for me to live here, and it’s not the most beneficial for my career. Here’s why I’m packing my bags again, and where I’m headed to next.
