Some of you are going to like this post... some of you are not... and there's no amount of explaining that will change that... but I will explain anyway for the rest of you... so here it goes...
We're moving! Again. To the Northeast! I can't even believe I just typed that phrase! Yeah. Noah has been done with his credits to graduate since last quarter. He should walk in June. Instead, we're moving!!!
We found out in March that Noah did not get into grad school. Thus endeth the path toward sustainable ag. Any jobs Noah wanted in that field required at least a master's degree. After some discussion back in December we had decided that if it didn't work out for grad school he would look for jobs in his former career again, and he seems to be glad of the chance to go back to something that he excels at anyhow.
He's been job searching for the past few weeks while taking some easy classes. And these two fantastic companies have cropped up to fight over him! They're both East coast... one in Manhattan, NY, the other in Westport, CT. We were a little surprised at these 2 prospects at first, but now we're excited! Needless to say, there are quite a few details that need to be ironed out over the next few weeks and we will be flurrying and scurrying to get our act together and all our ducks (not to mention cats and dog) in a row.
I'm sad to leave here, sure. Our time in Davis/Woodland has been full of pursuing passions that, had we stayed in LA, we would never have had the chance to pursue. And I've made some good friends here that will be sorely missed.
That said, I'm so happy for Noah to have this opportunity before him. He's amazing and such a hard working, supportive husband... it's nice for him to get some external encouragement like this!
I'm looking forward to the idea of being able to do something I like for a while, too, now... and not have to be so focused on being the breadwinner. Having not figured out my own personal path yet, it has been a stressful few years of working at a job I despise (albeit with people I enjoy and appreciated). I'm looking forward to trying out my skills elsewhere and seeing what I can make of them.
Our departure date is not finalized as of this time, but I will keep this blog updated as we go through the process of moving... again :)
