Personal Anecdote:

I was feeling stuck in a never-ending routine and yearned for a change of scenery. While sitting at work I Googled, “where should I move?”, which took me to a Buzzfeed website that had a mini quiz called “Where you should move to”. After taking quiz my options were either Denver, Colorado or Portland, Oregon. Being that I’ve never been to Oregon and currently had family in Denver, I couldn’t decide. That’s when I decided to leave the decision to fate and flipped a coin. Heads was Denver and tails was Portland.

Immediately after flipping the coin, I talked to my boss and put my two week notice in, sold my second car along with most my belongings, and broke my lease in the apartment I was at. Two weeks later I packed up my belongings and hit the road. I didn’t have a plan for my move beside making it a road trip and figuring it out once I’m there kind of mindset. I didn’t have friends or family in Oregon but wanted an opportunity to finally find myself and feel alive. After spending another two weeks driving through the coast of HWY 101 from San Diego to Portland finally made it and with 500 bucks to my name. Moving from New Mexico to being in a place full of giant tree’s like I’d never seen in real life, I decided to “camp” around Washington and Oregon for a couple months where I was constantly on the move, never staying in one place for too long.

Eventually, I found a job in a Portland and decided to put down roots. I started attending Washington State University, where I met like-minded individuals and became deeply involved in the local community. I was finally living the life I had always dreamed of, surrounded by nature and a supportive network of friends.

Looking back, I can’t imagine my life having played out any differently. I’m grateful for that fateful coin flip that brought me to this beautiful state, and for the opportunities that have arisen as a result. It’s a reminder to trust the journey and to let go of control sometimes, because sometimes the unexpected path is the one that leads to the greatest adventures and the most fulfilling experiences.
