Whoa what a heavy title for a blog post! Well it's true. I am going to be leaving Dallas in April to move to Houston! I came to Dallas in December of 2009 completely on my own and ready to take on the world. I've loved my stay here. I've grown so much in many areas of my life. My career really blossomed when I became a manager for Regis and then eventually running my own business by opening a salon booth. It taught me a lot about the beauty industry and if I could I would do it all again. I took a break from doing hair to try my hands at other career options, but I've had trouble finding one that fits me. In Houston, I plan to work at a salon again and get back into the field I love most. There are about 6 different salons in the area that I will be applying at. I'm confident I'll be able to find one that is right for me.
It's hard to say goodbye to Dallas because of the amazing comic conventions and cosplay scene here. I've been able to meet a lot of fantastic friends and embrace a new hobby that really gave me life. Houston has some conventions of it's own and hopefully once things settle down I can start making costumes again. I'm thankful for all the great opportunities Dallas has provided, but I am looking forward to new doors being opened soon.
There are some other reasons that I am moving. Y'all know I've had some ups and downs recently. I don't plan to mention or dwell on much of it. Let's just say I know this will be for the best. However, I felt it would be good for me to go ahead and share this news because y'all always lift me up with your kind comments and words of encouragement!!
If you'd like .. and you don't have to so don't even worry about it .. but if you'd like you can donate a few dollars to my move fund by using the PayPal donation on my Twitch channel. If I am live streaming your message will appear on stream and I can thank you personally, but if I am offline your message will be for only me to read. And you don't need a Twitch account to donate (I don't think) and there are no fees this way! So it's just there if you feel like it - I appreciate any support!
I'll probably be pretty busy the next couple of weeks, but once I am in my new place in April I hope to get back into the swing of things again with regular posts and streams. I'm excited to go on some new adventures in Houston and have new things to actually post about! :P For now the best place to see updates from me is on Twitter - @OMGLITZY - if you want to follow me there. Thank you all for reading and being so sweet and kind to me! HUGS!
