To all my friends in Boston

When I decided to move back to Boston last year, it wasn't a rash decision, it was my conviction. I had been threatening for months to move back, and then I had two sick family members, my cue to take action. I missed seeing my sister more than twice a year, and I wanted to go back to the place I was raised and be a young professional in Beantown. Things didn't exactly fall together like they did when I moved to New York. In fact, 2009 was a rough year. I realized I could no longer be aggressive and picky about the work I got, and my spending habits went from shopping sprees to savings to survival.

But I will never regret moving back. My grandmother passed away one month after the move, and the extra time spent with her was worth so much. I also made several new friends with inspiring interests and developed existing friendships. I rescued a dog from a broken home, ensuring she will always be loved and well fed. I got to spend time with my family, and realized that my sister was so busy that I saw her maybe once more than the year before.

But the reality is that I never want to be in a position where job security is an issue. I guess in these times, one is never truly secure, but I was so much more secure in New York, and it's time to move back there once again.

Now that I'm heading back into the health care advertising world, I want to be highly selective of the brands I choose to work on, because how I feel about the drug world as stated in previous posts still stands.
