I ventured to San Diego for a getaway with my college roommates, Kira and Amanda. It was our first annual trip together since we can no longer rely on multiple weddings every summer to reunite. We ate, endured the heat wave, and napped. Ideal? Yes.
Four years ago, I moved to Chicago with my best friends for a one-year adventure after graduation. Here’s a secret: I actually started a blog so I could document the experience and process everything I would learn. I wrote exactly one entry (spoiler: I hadn’t even left the Bay Area yet). Determined not to make the same mistake twice, I’m taking steps to set myself up for success this time.
