A Time to Plant and a Time to Uproot

Hi Everybody,

I don’t have any pretty pictures for you today, but I do want to share a few updates on what is going on in my life.

For the last month, I was visiting my parents in Virginia, just to get a change of scenery. I did some gardening, some beekeeping, and a lot of thinking while I was there. The fact that I could just up and leave Vermont for this long with essentially no notice made me realize that there is not much happening for me up here. I do aspire to have a career in Marine Biology at some point, and while I’ve been volunteering in Vermont, job opportunities have been very limited.

At the same time, I spoke to a friend of mine from college, who had gotten a job in the same field by volunteering at the place she ended up working. As a result, I’ve decided that it’s time for a big change.

I’m Moving To San Diego in a Week!

While I’ve had a lot of fun in Vermont, I’ve had California in the back of my mind since college. I’ve visited San Diego, and loved it. Also, for a Marine Biologist, there are just so many more opportunities there. That is one of the problems I was facing here, in land-locked Vermont.

I’ve accepted a volunteer position in San Diego that will help me build experience and build a network of people in my field. I just signed a rental agreement for a room, and am looking for a job to support me while I volunteer.

Anyways, I just wanted to give everyone an update, and explain why my posts have become less frequent as of late. I’ve just had too much on my mind to focus on writing. I plan to keep on blogging, but it’s going to stay slow for a little while longer. I’m sure there will be a lot to write about once I get to Southern California!

In dwelling, live close to the ground.
In thinking, keep to the simple.
In conflict, be fair and generous.
In governing, don’t try to control.
In work, do what you enjoy.” -Tao Te Ching (8)

P.S. Thanks to those who have nominated me for awards! I’ll work on accepting them as soon as I have more than a few minutes.
