And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.
— Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist)
As always, it seems like everything happens for a reason. I was pretty devastated when things didn't go as planned with The Charter School of San Diego / obvious promotion. But now that I've had some time to cool off and get over it, I definitely realize it was because it's time for me to move on from San Diego. While I love the location & the weather - I haven't yet found my niche here, and I'm looking forward to start in a new and completely different city.
I wasn't totally sold on DC until it turned out that my friend Rachel happens to own a condo in Alexandria, VA. Not only that, she was looking for a new tentant for the fall.
While I'm not one to totally believe in fate and stars aligning and such, but I figured this all worked out for a reason and I signed my lease today. As of Sept 1st I will be a Virgina resident.
Hopefully before then I will find a job :)
