this is a rambling post feel free to ignore
I’m feeling very lost lately and unsettled. I like my job but there is nowhere to go in the company. I don’t make much and it’s not what I want to be doing for the rest of my life but it’s good for right now.
I love Portland but my one major complaint is that I have no friends or family nearby. I live with my really good friend, which is great but we are both feeling like we won’t be in Portland for much longer. If she leaves, my mom will be the closest person to me and she is in southern California. I’m pretty introverted so it’s been hard to make new friends and I feel like I’m missing out on a lot of “young people” experiences but not having people to do things with. I love some alone time but I can only go the the movies or events or a hike by myself so many times before it gets lonely.
I’ve been thinking about moving back east to New England. I like it there, I have friends and family there, I could see my self staying there. BUT a few of my best friends are feeling the same restlessness and want to move away from New England. I would hate to move back to somewhere much more expensive to be close to friends that would just move away again.
I don’t know if I’ll ever go back into the architecture field, or if I even want to so I’m trying to really decide what I want to do and what would make me happy. I really don’t know though.
I might just say screw it and fly to Iceland and never come back. That could work, right? Someone get me a job in Iceland! I’ve never been but I’m pretty sure I would like it! I’d also take New Zealand. And if I’m gonna be far from friends and family, why not be somewhere awesome?
