Thoughts on leaving (and puppies)
By Elizabethjlocke on August 16, 2013
In a few hours, I'll be driving out of Dallas five years after arriving with a Ford Explorer full of clothes, no place to live and a three-month internship. I moved here in a state of total chaos hoping that life post-college would super fun and easy. Erroneous. Arriving on a Sunday night in 2008, I started interning at Southwest Airlines the next morning as a technical writer. Without a permanent place to live, I bounced around and lived out of a suitcase. For a few weeks I was even living in my friend's empty apartment on an air mattress that deflated every night around 2 AM. My friends had rented the apartment but weren't moving in until the fall so the apartment had no furniture. Just my little air mattress. It felt like a real low point.
