There are two words that I will hear more than any others this week, and they are “what’s next?” But, before we get to that, there’s another question that will frequently be asked this week.
How are you feeling about Miss Washington coming to a close?
Honestly, I am ok and doing well. While Miss Washington is maybe the best job in the world and undoubtedly one of the best years of my life, I knew it was just that- a year. I tried to make the most of it and know the blessings will continue to abound. I am so excited for the next chapter of my life and I am so grateful for the doors that this organization has opened for me.
So now, What’s next?
Well my friends, I don’t have all of the answers to that question, but here is what I do know.
I am moving! And no, I am not moving to a different house or apartment in Seattle, or back home. I am moving to…Boston! (Did you get that from the tea and red socks?)
Why Boston you may ask?
My college roommate and I, who lived together for two years at Eastern, have talked about moving to Boston for some time. She has connections over there that she wanted to move closer to and asked me to accompany her. With a college degree in hand, a whole lot of new experience from Miss Washington and nothing truly tying me down, I feel like I am ready to take on a new part of the world. So this now leads to…
What will you be doing in Boston?
I can’t exactly pin point what I will be doing quite yet. I have a few things in the works and some quick prayers would be appreciated.
What I can tell you is, because of the connections I have made as Miss Washington, I feel confident about job opportunities.
Do you know anyone in Boston?
I will be living with two of my best friends from the Tri-Cities. Demie, as I mentioned was my one of my college roommates. She and I have known each other since 6th grade. Whereas, my second roommate, Peyton, and I have actually known each other since grade school when our brothers played baseball together. We have all stayed close over the years and are excited for something new.
I will have all of my east coast Miss A sisters out there and have been fortunate to connect with a few people in the Miss Mass organization.
In addition, almost all of my new friends from the U.S. Open are from the New England area.
Let’s get a few things straight!
1. I LOVE the Pacific Northwest and will always consider this home.
2. Just because I am moving to New England, doesn’t automatically make me a Patriots fan. Calm yourself Hawks fan, I’ll still bleed green and blue.
3. Yes, I am aware of how much it snows there and I am up for an adventure!
4. I am on a roller coaster going up, so keep your eyes peeled for my future adventures.
So, thats’s all that I know on what’s coming next in my life. I do have plans to travel this summer and continue working for the Mariners for the rest of the season. I know that God will provide for me and His plans are much better than we could ever imagine.
Until next time,
