So I was checking my email last night and I got an email from the state of Oregon and I have my teaching license for the state now:)  I am pretty excited and so blessed that the process was pretty painless.  I am actually surprised the process was so easy – I think I often forget that I am actually a teacher.  It was such a long process to get through college and then to actually get a teaching job but I did it.  And now I am just waiting for a job.  Don’t think I haven’t applied but I would love to work in the Portland Public School District.  Every district is waiting for the budget though so I will keep waiting.  The license also made me realize how final this is.  We are actually moving to Portland and I couldn’t be more excited – bring on the west coast baby.

Summer Vacation

Well I am all done with school now and on my first official summer break.  It’s kind of weird as I have had summer breaks but this is the first summer since I was 15 that I haven’t worked on my summer break.  Crazy I know but I hate being idle….so now I am trying to find stuff to do.  Also I figured I need to set some goals so that I stay busy and accomplish some stuff.  So here they are:


1. Move to Portland – this means finding a place and a job:)  I have applied to so many places now I just have to wait – annoying but what do I do.  We are flying out in 2 weekends to find a place so that is super exciting.  This adventure is going to be amazing and I feel this is exactly where God wants us

2.  Get a job – as I said above I need a job because I am going to go crazy:)

3. Cook a lot of different meals.  I love cooking and have gotten a lot better so this summer I am going to try a bunch of new stuff.

4. Tumblr more – I have wanted to do this for awhile so now I need to.

5. Kick my running to the next level.  I have kept up my mileage for awhile but I am going to be better at tracking my runs, do some more cross training every day, and join a running group in Portland.  There is an amazing one that a friend, who just ran an Olympic qualifying time, recommended to me.

6.  Enjoy my time alone and with God – I get so busy during the school year that I am going to enjoy this time.

That should about do it… hopefully I will keep up with this:)
