May is always dubbed a transition month for me. Each year, something major changes in May. Last year, it was the decision to move to Nashville for the summer. May 2006 was the decision to start graduate school. Somehow, May is synonymous with change.
This May is no different. I’m officially moving out of Baton Rouge, LA and taking this show on the road to Washington DC. Since January, I had a feeling that I would end up either in Nashville, Washington DC, or Houston. I just felt that God was directing life that way. So, I started searching in those cities, and God started to open and shut doors. Houston shut first because I just couldn’t see myself living there. Nashville shut second. I sent out so many resumes there, had some bites, but doors started shutting in front of my face. I really didn’t understand it until April.
My friend E and I went to visit one of my most wonderful friends in DC. While we were there, I just fell in love with the city all over again. In love with public transportation…history…free community events….young professional single community….all of it. See what I mean? Its very Mary Tyler Moore, don’t ya think?
Once I saw that God gave peace about that situation, He started moving….fast. I interviewed for a job in April and, next thing I knew, I accepted my job and graduated the same day. Over the past few weeks, I had a place to live. Things are moving fast, but I’m so ready to be there and sad to leave at the same time.
So, thats the scoop! I’m sure there will be a few more updates before I leave, but if not, I’ll talk to you from the nation’s capitol!
