San Diego!

Yesterday, I conquered a personal comments essay for entry into PLNU's Master of Arts in Teaching program. Yes, this is a far cry from medical school, but let's be honest...I am a teacher. I can't seem to get away from it. So I've chosen to pursue it until God directs me otherwise. 15 minutes after I sent the email containing the essay, one of my soon to be professors, responded with excitement to say I was accepted and would start this AUGUST! In a few short weeks I will be moving to sunny San Diego where I will live near the beach, learn to surf and of course learn to become a better teacher. :)

I was able to find 2 great roommates who rent a house near Ocean Beach...a total God send! One studied Biology at PLNU and works at Sea World...who wouldn't love that job! The other just finished her masters at Bethel Seminary in counseling and loves to surf in her free time. sounds perfect!

So I'm cherishing time with friends and family (especially little Owen) and simplifying my life's possessions in order to streamline the moving process. I've been dreaming of a sun-filled beach life for some time now and really can't believe it's actually happening. This past year in Bremerton has been crazy...the ups and downs of applying to medical school, a busy teaching job at my old high school, far from my friends...but I've been close to family, saved money for the move and feel rested for this next life adventure!

God is good...he has been preparing a way for me and I continue to follow him in expectation of his great plans!

If a dog can can I!!!

trips to Sea World in my near future!

and the San Diego zoo of course!
