Relocating can be difficult, especially if you’re relocating by yourself. I have been trying to relocate to California for years. I know it’s a more expensive city than buffalo, but it has way more opportunities for me in the film industry. As an introvert, I do not want to be an actress. I am more comfortable working behind the scenes. My ultimate goal is to be a writer. My dream job is to be a staff writer on a television show or sell TV scripts or TV pilots to someone in Hollywood.
Being away from family and friends will probably be the hardest. I have nieces and nephews that I absolutely love. My friends and I don’t talk on the regular, but moving to a different time zone would make it even more difficult. Other things I would be facing is finding a place to live, finding a job, and actually trying to work towards my dreams and goals. Working towards the reason you relocated can be draining if things aren’t looking up for you because you’re in a new city, by yourself, and still trying to maintain and take care of yourself while still believing in yourself.
I’m afraid of going through this, but I’m more afraid of not trying to go after my career goal. I feel like I need to go through all of that in order to come out stronger.
