Hello! I’m Kathleen. I live in Pittsburgh with two roommates and my dog, Tilly.
Now I’m moving to Houston for graduate school.
Tilly’s coming with me, but this will be the first time I’m living by myself. I’m going to write about my experiences in a new city, and about the things I love to do. On the surface, it looks like I’ve got things pretty well figured out: get into grad school, check. Pack up everything I own and move to Texas, OK. Get adjusted in a new place and make it my own, cool! But life has a funny way of throwing a few curve balls, and it can often be Harder Than It Seems. I’ll document the ups and downs of my new life, and do my best to explore and try new things when I’m not crazy busy with school. It should be an exciting and entertaining journey! Since everyone has to start somewhere, I thought I’d start by documenting my packing and moving process, and some things I’ve learned along the way, so look for a post on that soon.
P.S. Look at the beautiful goodbye card I received made by my super talented coworker Flannery. You know you’re off to a good start when you have so much support and friendship behind you, and this is a good representation of how awesome the people I know and love in Pittsburgh have been. 🙂
