I’ve finally gotten to my last days in London. I can’t believe how fast this amazing adventure went, but I’m thankful that I got to experience it. I’ve finally come to terms with leaving because I do miss my family a lot. However, I’ll be very sad to leave this city. It has become my home and even though I know I’ll always have it to come back to, I’m not so sure when I’ll be landing at Heathrow Airport again. Hopefully that will not be too far into the future.
I loved every minute working for Kobalt Music Group. They are such a wonderful company and they really have done so much for writers. I feel so lucky to have been a part of their world for the past six months and I will take everything I learned from them with me through the rest of my career in the music industry. Everyone I worked with really helped me feel at home here in London and for that I am forever grateful. This experience would have been a whole lot harder if nobody had taken me in.
Another thing I have to take with me from my six months in London was the completion of my third EP, which will be available on my website later this summer. I had a great time working with the guys at Resident Studios and I think this is going to be the best EP yet. I can’t wait to share it with you all so please check back into my Facebook page and website in August to hear the new songs!
As my journey here comes to an end and I’m starting to pack up my apartment to get ready to leave, I keep looking back on everything I’ve seen and accomplished with a smile. Who knew that I could move almost 4,000 miles away by myself and take on a major international city. I’ve traveled to three different countries and took even more day trips around England, all while working my first full-time job. The most important lesson I learned here is that if you want something you should just do it. I’ve always wanted a great adventure but wasn’t sure if I could stand being away from home. I now realize that this was only the beginning. So goodbye for now, London, and know you’ll always have my heart.
