Making Springfield Ohio a Home

Growing up I neve thought I’d end up in Springfield Ohio. I had always imagined that I would live in Utah my whole life. But when I married my wife from Ohio, there was always a possibility that we’d be moving to Ohio. That possibility became a reality almost 2 years ago. I had never lived outside the comfort of Utah. I have never made such a leap before in my life. We moved with no place to live and no job, it was scary.

Change is Scary

Even though it was scary not having any certainty in life. I was still excited for the opportunity to learn and grow. When we moved we were lucky to have family that we could stay with while we looked for apartments. I applied for job after job and had more interviews than I have ever had. Since I persevered I was able to find a job within the first couple weeks. That eased my mind a little. Meanwhile, we had to find an apartment and that was much harder, however through patience, we were able to find a place to live.

Finding Adventure

We settled on an apartment in Springfield Ohio and moved in. I never imagined some of the adventures that would happen in Springfield Ohio and the surrounding areas. Some of my favorite experiences have been the Champaign County Fair. We also went to the National Museum of the United States Air Force in Dayton. The museum was really interesting, they had Airplanes and uniforms of the past.

We have found a park that has a princess carriage that my girls have coined as the “Princess Park”. They love to go play in the carriage and run around on the playground.

Step Outside your Comfort Zone

Moving to Springfield Ohio got me out of my comfort zone. It gave me the reason and the courage to start my YouTube channel. I am able to share the adventures with my family back home. It also allows me to share my experiences in Springfield Ohio with the world. Because of this new opportunity, I have been able to meet so many wonderful people. I have new friends on Twitter and YouTube that share my the same passions that I do.

More opportunities

Even though I miss my family and friends back home, I never imagined I would have so many opportunities in Springfield Ohio. I’ve only scratched the surface of the possibilities that are out there. I can’t wait to have more adventures. If you know of anything in the Springfield Ohio area I should try, please leave a comment or feel free to contact me.
