LIFE UPDATE ⚠️
Ugh ok so I've been avoiding making this post. I feel like I've done way more than my fair share of life updates the last few years, and honestly I'm a little tired. There are many wonderful things about being a adult, but the transient lifestyle is no longer one of them for me.
I recently decided that I will be returning to college in Atlanta at the end of August. When I moved to Chicago in February, my intention was to be here for the foreseeable future, but life as a adult in America's second guilded age has been a lot harder than I imagined. I've faced so much rejection from countless employers, landlords, a failed attempt to transfer to a new university, and in a drag scene that is incredible, but completely oversaturated with talent. I have spent months sacrificing time and physical well-being for a corporation I don't respect, just to pay my rent. My relationship with Emory has been complicated to say the least, but the generous scholarship and the opportunity to study my passions (more on that later) is something I would feel stupid not to take advantage of.
The decision breaks my heart. Living and doing drag in Chicago has been my dream for years. And here I am, accomplishing that, but not even staying long enough to leave my mark. I am so grateful for the personal growth this city has encouraged, there is no doubt Chicago has left its mark on me.
Please reach out if you want to hang! I'm hoping to fit in as many beach days as possible before I go ♥️ Xoxo Pam
