New Chapter

Well randomly life has changed drastically for me. I went into moving into California thinking that it was going to become my new home for the next two years. Unfortunately life has a way of completely looking me in the face and giving me a good smack. I wanted to transfer to a Cal-State school and waited until I could apply for California residency only to realize once I was going to do this that none of the schools were taking transfers until fall of 2010! A whole other year of no school. As much as I love California and dream of it being my home someday I know that school is my top priority in life if I want to achieve any dreams of my career.

There was a lot of other personal reasons for me deciding to leave California but in the end school was the main deciding factor. I haven't lived in Spokane since high school and felt that taking a break for a couple months before going back to school in January might be a good idea. I plan on enjoying the stress free life of not worrying about roommate drama or paying bills. I'm really excited also to be back in Spokane at the age I am now. To reunite with old friends and discover things about Spokane I never took advantage of before. Have quality time with my parents and be close to people I grew up with and all together rediscover myself.

I learned so much about myself in California. I learned a lot about what I like about myself as well as what I don't. I went out of my comfort zone in California and experienced so many new and exciting things. As much as I enjoyed my life in there I am glad to close that chapter and start a new one. I'm ready to really re-plan my life. For awhile I've always had a plan with my life; always knew where I was going. I had been putting my life on pause and have been distracted and am ready to get back on track.

I miss my friends and the life I had in California but can't wait to rediscover so many things while being in Spokane. At the moment my plan is to decide if I'm moving to Seattle, WA or going back to school in Rexburg, ID. In the end it will come down to me praying and asking God what path I take that will in the end make me the happiest and be the most rewarding.
