Musings and thoughts on just about a little bit of mostly everything.

My Old Kentucky Home

Harrisburg City Skyline

Kentucky is where I was born and raised. I've only been to handful of other states - most in the south and mid-west. I've never liked it here, but hey the grass is greener on the other side, right? Don't get me wrong. It's certainly not the worst place to live...

But it's not the greatest, in my opinion, either. Louisville, my hometown, has a thriving artistic and creative community and I actually do love it, this city will always be my home! It's just time for me to see myself and the rest of the world.

I've always wanted to get out and travel, thanks mostly to my uncle and his stories of far off places and adventures! So when some events this past spring gave me the chance to take a last minute road-trip to see some of Pennsylvania I jumped at the opportunity! I was only up there for Memorial Day weekend. But it was a weekend that I would never forget! A road trip all by myself!

When the weekend was done and over with I enjoyed the time and freedom so much that I began the process of finding a job, packing, and moving up there! Those who know me knew that Washington State was my aim and my goal - and that hasn't changed!

I still hope that one day in the future I can see and live on the west coast. However, the market for design there is much more tech and code oriented; so I really need to take some more time and learn those skills before I'd ever be able to see a stable career out there as a designer!

So for now I'm making the Keystone state my new home! I cannot wait to experience the adventures that I'll have out there and the people that I'll meet!

That’s what all we are: amateurs. We don’t live long enough to be anything else.  CHARLIE CHAPLIN
