Life Update (Moving Out + My New Job)

Life Update (Moving Out + My New Job)

Hi everyone! I know, it’s been a while. I basically dropped off the face of the earth for 2 months, but I’d like to think I have some pretty good excuses for that. The past 2 months have been so busy for me and I've gone through some pretty major life changes!

Last time you heard from me it was the beginning of July, and I had just recently come home from a trip to Walt Disney World. A few days after getting back home from Disney, I got the news that I got a new full time job! Right before my trip I had a job interview, and I was so thrilled to learn that I had gotten the position. I graduated from college with an advanced diploma in Graphic Design just over a year ago, and this is my first real job in the industry. I now work at a mobile advertising firm and I work on and create ads that appear on mobile devices!

Upon learning that I had a new job in Toronto, I knew moving to the city would be ideal. I only lived an hour outside of Toronto, but commuting from an hour away would be quite hectic and time consuming. It just so happened that my friend Abby (who had just graduated from the same school and program as I previously did), had plans to move to Toronto as well! So after a few weeks of looking for a place, we found one, and moved in shortly after.

So in the month of July I started a new full-time job and moved out of my parent's house for the first time. Those are big enough changes to justify my lack of blogging, right? I hope so.

Anyway, now that I’ve been at my new job and living in Toronto for a month, I'm quite a bit more settled and I really want to get back to blogging. I’ve been lucky because a few of my posts on Pinterest have kept some pretty steady traffic coming to my blog, and I’ve even gotten some new followers (so hi to those of you who are new)! For the next little bit my posts still might be a bit sporadic, but I hope to work out a schedule that works for me.

If you have any blog posts you’d like to see from me, be sure to let me know in a comment below! And before you ask, I do plan on sharing some photos of my new place, but I still have some more things I’d like to get for it before sharing so sit tight!

For anyone still reading, thank you for sticking around and I hope to be back with a new post soon!
