I'm starting a small review blog for my own writing practice and your enjoyment. Check it out at http://reviewsbykc.blogspot.com.
This is it. This chapter of my book is closing. I made it to Wilmington and therefore feel that this blog has run it's course. I made the first step in the big journey that is my career. I don't know what is to come from this move or when or if my dream will come true. All I know is that I am on my own and for the most part it is amazing. I have never felt more alive or free and scared all at the same time. Something inside me tells me this is all going to work out and it wasn't all in vain. But I honestly wouldn't be here if it weren't for the wonderful support system that I have backing me.
If you had told me in January that by logging on to blogger and following Southern Gothic Productions that I would meet some of the greatest people and make some of the best friends I have ever had, I would have called you crazy. But that is exactly what happened this week in Wilmington, NC. I had the opportunity to hang out with 7 of the funniest, craziest and best people I have meet in as long as I can remember. Megan, Andrea, Becca, Lauren, Liz, Jaclyne, and Dani are people you rarely meet and the best part of it is that we all genuinely got a long. The stars alined and I was fortunate enough to be here in Wilmington when this lovely group came through. I could never have guessed that my integration into this fine city would have had a better start.
Thanks to my wonderful sister and best friend I had one of the best birthday surprises given to me in a long long time. My sister flew in my best friend Lindsay from Orlando to be here for my birthday. I had no idea she was coming and didn't think I would get to see her before I moved. It was the even more impressive because Lindsay can hardly ever keep anything from me and she held on to this for a week.
I have never been an open book, I have never wanted to share my thoughts with others, I have never been a risk taker, and I have never felt safer in doing any of it. Thats what the community at SoGoPro have done for me and I can never thank them enough for it. In a week I will be moving into my brand new apartment in Wilmington, NC. I will be away from my family (when they leave on Tuesday) and on my own for the first time in a couple years. I would have never made this decision or even thought that I had the strength to do it if it weren't for the wonderful people that hang around SGP (old and new webpages).
