Crossroads.....

I love San Diego, perhaps it is pretty obvious. Though San Diego is the 8th largest city in the US and the 2nd largest city in California,

but it is as laid back as a small town.

A lot of times, when people think of a big city, what comes to their mind is simply the concrete jungle with little space to breathe in nice cool air, but not in my adopted city.

Despite having a population of 2,800,000 and being voted by trip advisor as one of the top ten beach destinations in the world drawing millions of tourists annually from all corners of the world,

but still, there is always a space in this city to find quiet and refuge.

I can go on and on why I love San Diego, but probably the very main reason why I love this city is that it is a big city that behaves like a country.

Sadly, I am afraid that one day, I may have to leave this city that I love, because there is no job for me. The unstable economy recently brought my city's school district to a budget deficit they probably never would have imagined, and as a result closures of at least 15 schools are considered. It is such a painful news to see this happening, which is not only limited to San Diego but across the nation. Presently, I am thinking of arming myself by slowly starting my own business, however, my most dreaded business-wise weakness is marketing. Marketing and advertising are important for any businesses to grow and expand, and I am not so sure if I would have the drive and talent to successfully market my product line. I can hire an Advertising Agency to help me promote and market the business effectively. In fact, even aspiring artists and talents hire advertising agencies to help them market themselves to the global world. How would I know which one to choose being a neophyte in this field? Hard to tell, but thankfully, online reviews and researches will help a great deal. Sometimes, I am thinking of letting go of this dream of putting up my own business and just simply move to another city where I would feel more secured with my job. But am I ready to leave San Diego yet? Crossroads.....
