One of the first blog posts I ever wrote was called What It’s Like To Move Out Of State.

After my first year in Florida, I thought I had it all figured out. HA!

Moving away from home for college was hard…it took some adjustments.

Now, moving as an adult? This is a whole different challenge.

When I moved to UCF, I instantly became a part of a community where everyone was in the same boat as me. We were all in a new city trying to discover what it was like to be on our own. We were all trying to make new friends and experience new things. I was able to make friends in class, on the bus, out at the bar, and at the campus gym.

I was so excited to move to Dallas to start off 2018, and don’t get me wrong, I’m still really excited! It’s been a great month and a half so far of starting my career and seeing new things. Dallas is an AMAZING city and I am so proud to call it my new home.

But, it’s been hard some days. It’s lonely. It’s overwhelming. I’m learning how to TRULY be on my own.

I’m learning how to be a real adult. I’m learning how to balance my personal life and my professional life. I’m learning how to put myself out there and create new relationships. It’s a learning curve for sure, but I’ve only just begun.

It helps that I work with some truly incredible people who make my weekdays enjoyable as well as some friends who keep my life interesting on the weekends.

This new chapter of my life is still new and sparkly, but it’s honestly the chapter that I’m most excited for. I’m building my career during the day and taking the city by storm at night with my girls.

So, if you’re ever in Dallas and want an adventure…Let ya girl know 😉

XOXO, Jazmyn
