After our partner and I got a divorce, I wanted to make a fresh start.
I had a pile of debt and a couple of friends.
One of those friends lived in California and she offered me a stadium to stay for a few weeks, then she was willing to let me sleep on the couch for free while I looked for a job and got settled. I could not pass up the offer, even if it meant uprooting our entire life and moving across the country. One good thing about moving to California is legal pot. I smoke pot everyday, however I wasn’t living in a state with legal cannabis laws. I was regularly worried that I would get caught and end up in trouble. In fact, our ex partner tried to use it against me in our divorce, then thankfully, the judge was a medical cannabis recommend and didn’t view our pot use as a disadvantage problem, but after the divorce, moving was the right option for me, however my ex partner was a little mad that I took our dog and moved, however I genuinely didn’t care. I slept on the couch in our friend’s tiny home for 6 weeks! During that time I found a job in Santa Barbara. I help with hair and makeup in a theater. The Santa Barbara theater is smaller than most sites, but it is situated in a small and beautiful village. I care about the job and there are lots of affordable apartments in the area. I’m currently looking for something in Santa Barbara, but our friend is in no hurry for me to leave.
