away from the norm
 

While I was on the road I had a lot of time to think about everything in my life. I had time to reset myself mentally, physically, and emotionally. I had time to really consider all possibilities and to think about where I wanted to go next. Ten weeks of freedom and pure bliss do that to people. Of course, not everyone thinks that living in a van for ten weeks is worth the time but for someone who loves to get outside, hike, and explore it's a paradise. 

One of the things I thought about was work, I wondered what I would do when I got back and what kind of job I could get being in a touristy area where I had lived most of my life. I really wondered if it was worth going back to Florida at all or if I should consider other options. Then I thought about my boyfriend and realized that I was gonna have to go back no matter what. I did (and do) love him so not going back wasn't an option and yet I really didn't want to go back to the normal 9-5 retail/hostess business. That's all the Destin area really is and I was dreading the idea of having to put myself through that stress. 

So I got to looking online for jobs I can do that wouldn't be in those categories. For weeks I searched, applied, waited, and wondered if anything would happen at all. Even when I got back home I got nothing. Not a lick of response from people I had talked to and I was started to feel that I would have to go back to those dreadful jobs. Which would be literal hell on earth. 

Yet someone was looking out for me because I got a job with a business that lets you work from home. Now I can't exactly tell you all the details but its great because I can make my own schedule and for a month I get paid training and it's really good money. It's an exciting factor that I wasn't expecting and I am so stoked to get this job started. I have a few weeks left of waiting and I know I will be busy getting things down and learning something new but I am ready to do something other than sit and watch shows all day or go climbing. I need something more than that. Something that makes me get up early instead of sleep in and struggle to get through my day. 

I'm ready, and I can't wait for this new chapter to start. I feel like things are really moving in the direction I need and when I get things down at this job I can travel with it. All I need is a headset and a laptop and I'm good to go. SO many adventures and changes are coming.
