About a year ago I quit my job. Went on vacation for a couple of weeks. Came home got a job at Pingree.  Once there I decided that I was not where I wanted to be.  I wanted to be able to do more. I ran away to Montana. I did not stop the car because I knew that if I did I would never make it there. As scary as it was I needed to make it to Montana.  Once there my aunt and uncle asked why I was there. I had no idea.  I spent the next morning at the library studying for my SSW.  I went back to the house and applied to Graduate school. SERIOUSLY! I had no idea what I was doing or why I was doing it. I just needed to have faith that I would figure it out. I started the process. I applied to 3 schools. All out of state. SERIOUSLY! I did not tell many people. I could not believe I was doing it. Applications were in the middle of December.  I was accepted to 2 of the 3 in February.  I should have gotten into the third...maybe still a little bitter. I committed to both.  The same day my car was totaled. I was emotional.  How was I suppose to go to graduate school, pay for it and have a car payment? It was rough. Things slowed down and I was able to make decisions.  Good ones. As the time neared to leave for school. I was a wreck. What had I done? I doubted and doubted my decisions.  However I was going to follow thru. I moved to Washington state. I currently live in the Tri-Cities and attend Walla Walla University.  They do quarters. I have one quarter done, and start the second on Monday. I will be done with my MSW in June. And, I LOVE it here. I had no idea where I was going to live. I had no idea what school would be like. I had no idea if I would meet people and make friends. I had to have faith in my Heavenly Fathers plan. I now live with 3 girls who are all LDS, whom I get along with and enjoy there company.  I have been on dates...some I wish to have not gone on.  I think its cause I am new.  Some serious stalkers in these here parts. It has been an adventure. One in which has taken some serious adjusting. But I am doing it.
I am celebrating change.
