...and did I mention that I'll be driving there?
Basically, I was offered an internship with an event/conference planning company that's based in Vancouver but also has offices in Denver and Austria (yes, like the country). I've been thinking of trying my hand at marketing or event planning for a while now (anyone who's seen me plan a surprise birthday party will get this), and I am very ready for a change of scenery so I'm going! Good thing I already like hockey and maple syrup:
Yes, I am absolutely terrified to leave everything/everyone I've ever known (again) to move across the country by myself (again) to start anew in a city I've never seen before. No, I don't have an apartment there yet, or even know where to begin with that. Yes, I am unbelievably excited to do this. And yes, my travel path is more likely to look something like this:
Stops include: Redwood National Forest; world's largest ball of twine, KS; world's largest dinosaur (??), CA; Portland, OR; various friends throughout New Mexico and SoCal; world's largest hot dog, CO; world's largest cowboy boots, TX (of course); world's largest paper airplane, WA -- (And yes, I'd love a passenger or two to join me on some part of the national tour!)
With that said, I think I've decided to take a short break from blogging. I'll definitely still post occasionally, but I need some time to recover from this tough summer, kind of re-discover why I'm even doing this, where I want threadbare to go, what I want to focus on, etc. I hate doing this after being such a sucky blogger the past few months, but ultimately I think it shows that I do need to recharge and refocus.
I love you all, and I'm so thankful for you guys following me thus far! Stay tuned for chapter two - first is the worst, second is the best?
And just b'cause:
