I’m moving to Denver! It feels a little strange to write that. I was accepted into a 6-month full stack flex coding program so come mid-October I’ll be packing up the pack and driving across country with my best friend.

I’m excited to further develop my skills, meet new people, and live in another state. Ever since deciding to apply and then being accepted into the program, I’ve been feeling a roller coaster of emotions. It’s a mix of both anxiety and excitement but I feel like it’s the right decision for me right now.

I’m looking forward to exploring a new city, finding new favorite spots, and being close to my family during the holiday season. In the meantime, I’ll be soaking up my remaining weeks in Philadelphia and trying not to stress about packing.

Speaking of embarking on a new adventure, have you ever moved across the country? What was the hardest part? Tell me all your tips, please!
