I think this is something every blogger needs. That post to kick off the foray into just hobby blogging into full time travel blogger. This is it, for me.

I just quit my job! My last day was yesterday, on Christmas. Santa Claus knew just what I needed. I’m so grateful to be able to even consider quitting and freelancing full time. For those who don’t know, I’ve worked at a jail for the last 5 years. It’s been a really fun and enlightening time, I’ve definitely grown a ton and look at my 5 years of experience as a huge learning block. Very thankful for that opportunity.

As you may or may not know, in that 5 years, I sparked a love for photography and travel. I’ve gained a huge following (shout out to yall!) and created a somewhat successful business thus far. I’d now like to continue that but full time for once.

Get a hobby but make it your job.

I’m definitely terrified of what will happen. I haven’t been without a 9-5 job since i was 16 (im 24 now ahhhhh mid life crisis coming soon) so this will be so different and something new and challenging but I am up to the challenge. My plan, you ask? i plan to do what I have been doing really: traveling around, taking photos, being creative and helping you guys in the process. This blog is a way to keep everything all in one, neat little box.

I’ll be doing the usual travel blog posts here. Showing you where to go, what to do, how to do it. For photography, you can still visit my other site: celestimages.com. Thank you for sharing this journey with me and this is just the beginning. Let’s get to it. To start, I’ll be in LA and from there i’ll be going to Peru, Cuba, San Diego, Tokyo, Korea.. and that’s just the beginning!
