A Little Life Update: What's Been Going on Lately

A Little Life Update: What's Been Going on Lately

Alright guys, this is going to be a long one.

In the past three weeks, Josh got a new job, I quit my job at Glassdoor, today I start my new job at a fashion startup in the city, ThirdLove and we signed a lease on a brand new apartment in SoMa. Whew. Now, to explain that all:

Where to start? #1: Josh's new job! Josh has worked at Square for the past two years, and he recently switched roles to a new team within the company and got a promotion! I'm so proud of him.

#2: Quitting my job at Glassdoor. I've worked at Glassdoor for the last two and a half years, ever since I graduated from college. It was the best first job I could have ever asked for, and I learned more in the last two + years than in the previous four, or even eight. I've definitely sensed for the past few months that I was looking for my next big challenge, but didn't really know if it was at Glassdoor or elsewhere. Then, ThirdLove came around!

#3: Starting my new job at ThirdLove. It's no secret that fashion is my passion, as I've continued this blog for the past five years on nights and weekends. When ThirdLove initially reached out to me to come work on their content marketing, social media channels and blog, I thought "I can't really leave Glassdoor, can I?" Then, the more I thought about it, I knew I had to take a leap of faith and jump into the unknown! I'm SO excited to be working at a fashion startup doing what I love - and today is my first day!

#4: Getting a brand new apartment! We currently live in a cozy one-bedroom apartment in Russian Hill that Josh and I moved into together after college. This was the first home we built together, so it's definitely bittersweet leaving, but it's on the opposite side of town from both Josh's job and my new one so it's not currently very convenient. So, on October 4 we're packing up and moving across town to a downtown highrise! If you've ever seen our current place, it's in an older building in a sleepy little neighborhood, so moving to a modern highrise with giant windows, wood floor and a doorman is definitely a big change - but one I'm so ready for.

I'll be sure to update you guys in the next few weeks as we move - and you can bet to see some before and after shots of the new place on here!
