It's the night before I move. I'm supposed to be asleep..but obviously that's not happening. I can't sleep. I'M MOVING TO FREAKING LA. How am I supposed to sleep? 😓 Like the day is literally here. Like here-here. Man. This time next week, I would have already settled into my apartment & drank some margaritas by the beach LOL.

Honestly though, the only one I can thank for this step in my life is God. Truly. If you asked me a year ago from now what I was going to do after graduation, NO WHERE IN A MILLION YEARS, would I have thought I was going to be moving to Los Angeles, one of the biggest cities in the world. It definitely wasn't given to me though. It took hard work, dedication, and commitment to not give up. I faced so many obstacles, challenges, & so many rejections. It just comes to show that anything is possible.

I remember when my best friend Alexis was with us, we'd spend so much of our time talking about how we were going to move to NYC or LA and live in a cool apartment with exposed brick walls & have awesome jobs as fashion bloggers or something lol. Man...I know how happy she would have been for me right now..actually I know she's happy for me right now. 👼 She probably would have said something along the lines of "UM IM GOING IN YOUR SUIT CASE K?" haha.

Well....wish me luck on this long 21 hour trip I'm making with my dad. I'll need it. I have a great playlist already, my phone is charging, my bags are packed, and I just said goodbye to my bestest friend in the world, Cindy 😥

In the past couple of days I've been thinking a lot. Thinking about me, my health, my body, my mind, pretty much anything about me. I've decided that as soon as I get to LA, I'm going to start working out & eating better. It's time that I take charge of my health & get that banging body I want. ESPECIALLY since summer is coming up. I really need to work hard. I've been thinking about getting into yoga & hiking. I've never done any of those, so it would be something new. It's probably hard but I'm definitely willing to try it :) I just want to get a new hobby or something that will get me more in touch...with me. You know? I feel like I'm not spiritual enough or just in touch with myself overall. As I get older, I notice how much more important it is to take care of yourself not just physically, but spiritually as well.

Welp. Idk what else to ramble about. Byeeeeeeeeeeee.

Only God knows how pale I am.
Can it be Summer 2016 too much? Or am I asking for too much?

One of the things I'm most excited for, is the California sun. There's nothing like it. The beach, the wind, the sand, the water, everything. Just WOW. I can't wait! :)

Ahhhh! I'm screaming of happiness. Today my parents & I decided that my take off date is this coming Sunday!!!!😁 I wanted to fly to LA but shipping my car was going to be such a hassle and way too expensive, so driving is my best option. i've been talking to a couple people who are already in the LA area and I'm so excited to meet and link up with them. My roommate Natalia (funny bc that's my moms name) and I have been talking a lot about stuff we should do. Like SPEED DATING & hiking lol. I'm glad she's cool, the worst thing that could happen is live with someone who is a pain in my a**. Anyways, my countdown has stared. 7 days!! I say 7 because it takes 2 to actually GET there. 😖 But whatever, a road trip will be fun :)

I also decided that I'm getting my extensions back. I hate short hair. It's not that it looks bad, I just...look better with long hair. I found a great salon in LA that does the install for a great price. I can't start work looking ratchet lol. New hair - NEW ME haha.

Well….i’m kind of depressed. I said goodbye today to some of the most important people in my life :( I know this isn’t goodbye forever, but damn I’m gonna miss my crazy fun awesome friends. As I drove home…I just felt a grip of sadness in my heart. I've made the best memories of my LIFE there with the most amazing people. It's really like someone is cutting a piece of me off... :( Truly unexplainable, but I know that wherever I'm going, I'll meet new people & make new memories. 

On a happier note, I did fine a final place to live at today. It’s 6 miles from my job, 2 miles from the beach, and my roommate is a cool 19 year old, Polish/Canadian/Spaniard/ I really don't know what LOL. I’m really glad that’s finally off my mind and I can take a breather. I kept worrying and worrying that I wasn’t going to find a place to live. Now I just need to decide when I will be moving out there.

Everything is falling into place perfectly and I couldn’t be happier!!! I have one less thing to stress about :)

Hey guys, I just feel like blogging a little. My thoughts are like a roller coaster right now. I can’t stop thinking about Cali and the adventure that awaits. Today was my last day in College Station…it’s official. It makes me extremely sad. I made so many great memories that could never be replaced. I made friends who are one of a kind. & I also damn near ruined my liver LOL (that’s college tho). Man that’s crazy…my college-era is over. It went by too quick. I miss school. Like sometimes I want to go back…but like naw lol. Either way, my college years were the best years of my life (so far). Graduating a year early was pretty bitter sweet though. I had to end it early, but I get to start my career early. At only 21, 4 months after graduation, I got a really awesome job offer. Maybe it’s the ring ;) I could’ve definitely used more nights at northgate, more random apartment parties, and college boys in my life….but who am I kidding? LA will have all of that x1000. lol. It’s just weird to realize that i’m gone foreal. I feel like I just move to Cstat yesterday. Oh well…we have to grow up sometime right? :)

I guess thats all for now. Short & simple.

Today was my last day at First Convenience Bank…man that’s crazy. I spent a year and a half there. I hated it, I liked it, I hated it, I liked it, I hated it. That’s how it went out there. I wanted out so bad but I didnt know how to actually get out. Duh I couldve found another job, with better hours, better pay and better everything else, but Cstat is so freaking small, that I never got lucky. But today was it. My last day!!!!!!!!!! OMFG. It felt so great to walk out of that bank knowing I was about to start an awesome job. I am never working a retail/customer service job ever again. TBH F*** that. It’s pure slave work & I didn’t go to college to work some crappy job.

Oh gosh there’s so much to do so little time. I put my two weeks in at work on friday and I told her tbh this friday may be my last day. I have too much to do. Luckily I just finished all my subleasing stuff. so thankful I found someone to take my place at my current apartment so I dont have to worry about that anymore. Next thing I need to do is switch my suddenlink account info to my other roommate, and cancel my gym membership, which btw i used 4 times lmao. Then i need to figure out how the shiznets im going to move all my shit to california lol. uggggggggggggghh *STRESSED*

THE BEST PART OF ALL OF THIS: I have a roommate & I have a home already waiting for me in the LA area :) Thank you Jesusssss

*if you dont want to read all this just scroll to the end to get the long story short version*

Over the last year, I have felt very insecure about my professional future. I didn’t know what I was going to do once I graduated college. Sure you can sit back and not worry about anything and let things go as they go…but come on, no body got time for that! I wanted a plan to go by. I wanted a job lined up after graduation. I wanted money. a new man. a new car. everything lol. so what did i do? I started applying to jobs…10 months before i graduated. why? well like i said, i wanted a job lined up after graduation and i wanted money. I figured, well if i start applying now, ill have a job right after. UM YEAH NOT THAT EASY. Sure I got interviews, but that’s all I got. I literally went to 20 companies and they all told me no…shit, some didn’t even bother. A couple months ago, I also had a really long interview process with AT&T corporate for a sales position.I knew I had it in the bag….but when I got to the last interview, they asked me to do a case study and i completely screwed ALLLLLL the way up and lost an awesome opportunity. it’s really discouraging and at one point i was like screw this crap and stopped applying for jobs.

Well fast forward a little bit, i graduated (its still weird to know i have a real degree) and still, i had nothing, no plan, no job, no man, NADA. i did have my job at the bank, but i mean that’s no where near to what i want to do. so essentially i had two choices: 1. get a 1 year lease, stay in college station, turnup, make & save some money then move to Austin OR 2. move back home, save money, pay no bills, but live with my parents who drive me insane…….well duh i picked the 1st option lol.

Well, here i am 4 months into my lease, 4 months of working full time, 4 months of not being a student anymore, 4 months of working a job that im starting to hate. (I ALSO FOUND MY FIRST GRAY HAIR, i want to say it’s due to the stress of my job). so yeah, 4 months of boring routine adult gray haired life.

So here’s my turning point, if you’re even still reading. One day, like literally 3 or 4 weeks ago, i just had enough. i was so tired of my job and the crap it comes with, that i decided to stop being lazy and start applying again to jobs. in that same week, i landed 3 interviews. 3 awesome companies. 2 in houston, 1 in LA. which one was i more excited for? well you probably already know that answer lol. well whatever, i do all three interviews. out of the 3, i get 2 call back. of course im freaking out about the LA company…because um well its FREAKING LA. like wtf. i had to do great. i HAD to kill it. so that’s what i did. i researched everything i possibly could about the company, put my greatest selling voice, and sold the crap out of myself. ok so now what? i did good, i landed a 2nd interview, but little did i know that the 2nd interview was a case study. of course i freaked out. the last case study experience i had went awful and i lost an opportunity of a lifetime. That’s why this time around i did things differently. I studied. yes, i actually studied. i looked for tips, answers, questions, and even asked a ton of friends on facebook for advice. well i guess all those efforts worked out for me because i passed. Jordan (the recruiter) said i did great and offered me a final interview. *FREAK OUT MOMENT* LoL. I didn’t know how to act. I was literally soooooo close to getting what i had wanted for so long!

I wont go so deep into the last interview, since it was literally a 10 minute conversation with me & the Ceo. he asked me 3 questions and that was it. I didn’t really have a clear sense if i nailed it or not. at this point, im done interviewing, and i didn’t want to get TOO excited because i mean…look at me, 20+ interviews in with 20+ rejections :/ I also thought this job was too good to be true. its my dream job, dream city, dream salary (lol), like how was I good enough to get it?!

ok this is getting long. well the point of this blog is to document my life from me moving out of texas to me moving in to my new place, to making new friends, and exploring a whole other world. i needed this introduction to establish to those who may not know me, an idea of who i am and what ive been through to get to the position i am at now. so yeah thats it.

Long story short: I’M MOVING TO LA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
