Milestone #6: And the times they are a changin'

Welcome to grown-up land! It's terrifying.

I will be moving out in a couple months.  My Mother is still in a little bit of denial about this which makes it a little hard, but I know it is time for me to grow up a little.  

I graduated College

I went on an amazing two week adventure through Western Europe (post coming soon)

I am now looking for a true career with benefits, not just a job

And I'm sharing a bed with my Mother. 

One of these things is not like the other...

I know it's not the smartest thing financially, but at a certain point we all have to take a step into the scary and make a place for ourselves.  I do not want to be 30 and still living at home, having never left (with or without my husband).  If I fail at this, I'm going down swinging.  A life of having things handed to me and the way manicured and prepared before me has never been my destiny, I know this.  The Lord hasn't told me "no" when I ask him, so I'm going for it.  

Besides all this, I will get married eventually (*fingers crossed*) and I can only learn good skills by doing this.  Its an investment in my future.  Is it scary? yes.  Am I freaking out a little bit? yes.  

But I am excited, because it's right.
