She’s Nashville Bound… April 21, 2014

It’s a long, long road to independence…

But I’m leaving you for Tennessee…

I’ve got demons riding shotgun, telling me not to go…

But what they don’t know…

Is I’m already gone…

I’m already gone…

 

That’s a little snippet from a song called “Already Gone” that I heard on the television shows “Nashville”, written by Kyle Jacobs, Ben Glover, and Joy Williams—all of whom I believe have written other music on the show as well. Anyhow, it’s a good song…and a good show. It’s filmed on location, right in Nashville, which is nice. I’ve always had a lot of respect for the shows that are filmed on location, rather than those fake Hollywood sound stages and sets. I think the authenticity of shows that are filmed on location instead is like a character in and of itself, you know? It’s just better all around.

Anywho…I love to ramble, as we all know.

Speaking of rambling…this gal’s going to be doing a different kind of rambling soon…as in traveling. That’s right, there’s a reason I’m doing this particular subject matter for this post. I’m moving…to Tennessee. Nashville, to be exact. In December. I’m transferring to an amazing design school down there and finally finishing up what I started when I went back to school. I have to say that one of the greatest perks of doing freelance work like I have the past few years is the ability to do it wherever I want, on my own terms…which makes this move and uprooting myself really easy. It’s an amazing thing, really.

So why Nashville, Tennessee you might ask? Well…for starters, it’s Nashville. I mean you’ve got great music, great culture…all that Southern charm and hospitality…you can’t go wrong really. From what I hear, Nashville has more of a little big town feeling than a city and in terms of what I’m looking for in a new place of residence, that’s more along the lines of what I’m going for and what I want for myself…

Anyways, I just got back from a little trip I made there the past week. If I had to sum it all up in one word as to what I thought of Nashville, it’d be—without a doubt—AMAZING. And it was. I had a great time. The people were lovely…the places were incredible. I fell in love at first sight with the school I’ll be going to and the people there were the nicest and most welcoming you could meet. I have no qualms about fitting in or feeling at home down there…which is a little strange considering my entire life, New York has been home. I need the change though and honestly, I think it’s going to be good for me. A fresh start. A new life. A new beginning.

I’m excited…

xoxo MESSIE
