This Was Bound To Happen

June 22, 2015

Update: Ok fine, I’m not moving to Berlin. I will still be going for a few days since I did buy my ticket, but my international move has been postponed for now. Don’t worry, I have my heart set on moving to a new city, but I’m just not done with Philadelphia yet!
So I’ve been telling a lot of my close friends this weekend, but I’ve decided to share my news with anyone who reads this blog.

    I was waiting for the punchline, but this is happening! How exciting! I’m sure I’ll see you in the next six months, but congrats and good luck anyway!

    • Hehe thanks Sarah! Every time I remember it’s happening I simultaneously want to throw up and scream for excitement. Cheers to the unknown!

    • Ditto @shadesofsarah:disqus ‘s comment… I was definitely waiting for the JK! @melissaalam:disqus, good for you girlfriend. That’s AMAZING and I’m all about Eat Pray Love moments. You’ll have such a better story than her anyway. πŸ˜‰ CONGRATS!

  • Congrats Melissa!! Been loving your journey so far. Looking forward to seeing and hearing about all that is ahead of you. Do stay in touch!


  • Hey Melissa – I’m moving to Berlin this December for very similar reasons. For co-working, I highly recommend Betahaus, and especially their weekly networking event “Betabreakfast”.

Hey, I’m Melissa!
