My place of work had me moving to Springfield Missouri.
At first I wasn’t too keen on the idea of being in Missouri.
I had also never heard of Springfield. But I got a nice pay bump and I am not close with my family. So why not move somewhere for more money. Now that I live in Springfield, I wouldn’t move again. I really like hte area. When I first moved it was a little daunting. It wasn’t as big of a city as I was used to. The weather was a little colder than what I was familiar with. What is great is that there are a ton of online resources for things to do in Springfield, MO. I found a whole list of fun hobbies that you could get started in. I started trying out learning a new language. Missouri State University offers a language program. You can learn any language and start as a beginner. I had always wanted to be fluent in German. So I started out taking a few classes and then I progressed through the ranks. I now have a group of friends that I attend class with after work. We then get something to eat after our class and hang out together on the weekends. We spend a lot of time together and get in touch during community events. I have never had such a tight knit community vibe breore. I think that is unique to the Springfield, MO area. I love my new state and city.
