A New Adventure


When you hit a dead end in life, it’s time to make a change. I’ve basically hit that point where I’m at right now. I’ve been putting it off for a long time, but it is definitely time to admit that I’m not in a good situation. Since there isn’t a whole lot left I can do to get myself back on the ground here, I’ve decided to go where the jobs (and my parents) are. The Big Sky Country. I’m taking off for the mountain-y-er pastures of Montana.

The plan as it sits is to head up to Helena in the next week or so and spend at least a month trying to find gainful employment. In a lot of ways, I think this move was inevitable. When my brother and I went up there in May, it started to hook its fingers into my soul. Now, a month and a half later, I’m going to accept that I need to get up there so I can get my feet back underneath me.

Part of me still insists that I don’t want to move up there, but I know that it will be a good opportunity for me to get back ahead of my life. I can’t refuse it. Sometimes, our own worst enemy is our own stubborn refusal to change. Change or Die, right, Mr. Ramsay?

I have a lot of preparing to do in a very short amount of time. I’ll try to keep the world updated.

  1. I am so happy to hear this! I think there will be more opportunity for you there than where you are now. You know I love Montana. It is where my husband is from and where I lived more than half my life. Of course I am biased in my complete love and adoration of Missoula. Helena, is okay. 😛 All or most of Jess’ family lives in Helena too so when we visit – whenever that happens, we’ll be able to see you too! We have friends all over there so you always have “connections”. I think this will be really good for you. 🙂

    Knowing the struggles that you’ve been going through, I’m glad to see that you’ve come to this decision. I know how much your parents mean to you, and I think that it’s great that you’ll be close to them. It will be good for you in so many ways. Always, the very, very best to you, Matt. I am excited for you!

    You’ll love it! Stop through on the way there!!!

    1. Unfortunately, I will not be passing through South Dakota on this trip. I’m going across Nebraska to visit family.

    I will not lie and say something emotional to try and keep you here ( I have trying to get you to move back down here!) but instead, I will wish you the best and hope all works out well! (and that is how you say it in one sentence!)
