Hello, Indianapolis.Posted: May 28, 2013
No, this isn’t a post about movies, sorry if you are disappointed. If you find yourself not disappointed continue reading.
I noticed a trend when I first started my post grad life near Indy. People loved to say goodbye. They wrote blog posts saying a fond farewell to a city they outgrew. They thanked friends and family and talked about how much they loved Indy but they ultimately admit that they were always looking for greener pastures. That is why I am writing this, this is my Hello to Indianapolis.
When I first started my job hunt post college I wanted out. I wanted out of Indiana and I had no real good reason for it. Call it group think but I just found myself searching far and wide for a better place to be. Eventually I realized it just wasn’t in the cards for me because maybe there wasn’t anything “better” about Nashville, LA, or Chicago. I ended up getting a job at a fantastic company in Indy and I moved to Fishers. I guess I could have called this a “Goodbye, Fishers” post but we don’t need to focus on that. I am ready to be IN Indianapolis. Not in the burbs, but in the city. I grew up in Anderson and going downtown to Market Square Arena for Pacers’ games was like going to Disney World world for me. It’s not just nostalgia that is calling me to become a downtown dweller but the improvements made in downtown Indy in the past decade are amazing. The community is alive and well and people are starting to take pride in their neighborhoods and neighbors. Why wouldn’t I want to be a part of all of that?
So where do you come in? Well I am looking for a new job and a new place to live.
