I’ve discovered that being an adult and traveling is TOUGH! Working a 40-hour week doesn’t leave much time for international travel. I recently managed to take a 10 day trip to Asia, but I’d love to take a longer trip in the future. It’s a catch-22, I want to travel while I’m young, but I also need to save money and build my life!
Through a whirlwind of events post-graduation, I’ve found myself working at an optometry office in Portland, Oregon. I love this city, but I honestly don’t know if I would stay here forever. I am not tied down and that feels pretty liberating. I enjoy knowing I could pack up and move if necessary. I have a great group of friends and a wonderful apartment, but other cities have that, too. I definitely see myself living in Portland for the next 5-10 years, but beyond that… who knows?! I certainly don’t.
