So here I am.
Jobless, been miserably sick, and, accept for a short visit with my Bishop, I haven't had human contact in days.
After finding out last week that I didnt get a job I was expecting to get, I spent a day in the Temple. I pondered, and questioned and prayed... asking for answers.
And the answer came.
I am moving to Idaho. I dont know if it is temporary or long term. I am going to live with my parents. Mostly, I feel that this is going to take the financial pressure off me while I decide what to do with my life.
I am still looking for jobs in Utah, Salt Lake Area. I feel this is where I have built my life. I have friends here that are like family. I love the city life, the shopping, the social possibilities. I am also looking for jobs in south east Idaho, closer to my family. But, I want to stay in SLC.
I also know that when the Lord says move, I need to act, and act fast.
I have my apartment up for rent. Several people are coming over today to check it out, and I hope to sale my lease and be out by the end of Feb. In fact, I WILL be out by the end of Feb.
Here are some thoughts:
I am looking into graduate school again. A second masters or a PhD. Counseling or Social Work. I want to eventually set up my own practice. A little office off the side of my house, where I can run my own business and set up my own schedule. Programs at the U, BYU, USU and ISU interest me. I am going to study up and get a better score on the GRE and apply for the schools this fall.
Dating you ask? I have been out with a few guys, but nothing is serious right now, and the guys have my number and know where to find me :) Perhaps the right guy is in Idaho. And I can't put my life and plans on hold for something that isn't substantiated.
This has been a really trying time, but I also feel that this is also part of the plan.
So now you know.
