The move to Portland has been very bittersweet to me. I made some, what I hope are, really good friends. People I really want to keep in touch with. That I feel like I can really share with, talk with, and have a good time with. I tend to be two different people - "work Liz" and "non-work Liz".
Having said that, I really am excited about the change. I feel hopeful that this will be a great step forward for Corey and I. We were able to get a place with little to no effort all because of good timing and things just seemed to come together very naturally for us this time around. Bangor always felt like I bit of a struggle. Like we were always having to work hard for what we want and never really get anywhere. Portland, though, is effortless. Everything a clicking and there isn't any anxiety over whether or not we made a mistake. It is an awesome change after the last few months of stress.
It helped that I immediately got a job here. I ended at McCue on Friday and started my new job the following Monday. No time off for this girl!
