Five Quick Things

Brevity is the order of the day so four quick things-

1) I know my Seattle posts were dramatic. There were a couple rough days where I was working to reframe my expectations about what it’s going to be like to move to a new place where I know no one. Plans can change (quite quickly and unexpectedly – hello, MPA program?!), but if I can find a job, Seattle is still the plan. The Emerald City (and Redmond where I plan to live) will be a great place to live and work.

2) I am loving the sunshine. Yesterday we almost hit 60 degrees. I know those of you outside Utah don’t understand how warm that is for us, but even today’s 50 degrees feels glorious. It gives me hope that spring will actually come.

3) I saw Jewels and Mae three times this past week. That alone makes the week a tremendous success.

4) I got to catch up with so many great people this week - in person, on the phone, via letters. Some of you really are hilarious - thanks for sharing!

5) I had a dream that I was dating Luke Danes from Gilmore Girls last night. Perfectly delightful thing to wake up thinking about...have to be honest though, I was almost late to my 7:30am meeting because I wanted to keep dreaming.

Alright, back to work. Things in accounting class and Clipperland are dramatic, time-consuming, and really get unruly if left alone for too long. Love you bunches!

True fact: I served in the Redmond zone for 3 months. It's beautiful there. And TONS of members. You'll absolutely love it.
