August has been a month of big changes in my life. I have left Reno the city of sunshine, casinos and cheap drinks and traded it in for a life of rain, hipsters, and organic food in Portland. Its been such a whirlwind of an adventure sometimes I have to stop and remind myself that I am not visiting but I do in fact live here.
I joined the Storycode team as a Digital Publishing Specialist (sounds important huh?) Guys, I get to build apps now! How cool is that? Most of the apps we build are for tablets and they are mainly magazine apps for for sales enablement. This is something I dabbled in during college and I am excited to do something I am passionate about with a wonderful group of people. The best part: I get to make things all day long. Hello, the exact reason I started this blog was because I LIKE TO MAKE THINGS – and of course show off what I have made and see what other people are making too.
Since I moved here I have been living at a family friend’s condo in Portland. It’s been perfect. I am so lucky to have had a place to stay while looking for an apartment. It is in a great location and only a 15 minute walk to work. It’s been wonderful but I am looking forward to moving into my own place. My boyfriend and I will be moving in just a few weeks. I don’t have any pictures of the inside but here is the cute courtyard.
There will be more posts on my apartment since I am inevitably going to be DIYing all over that place.
So here’s to a new life in Portland.
