It has been strange trying to adjust to our new home. I did not expect to miss Pullman so much. I think what I am really missing, though, is the freedom we had while Craig was getting his PhD. I got to see Craig a lot more often! That and I miss the people I knew and the familiarity of the town. I know that after we adjust, I will be a lot more happy in Western Washington, it's just a lot of change happening at once!
I did do a lot of happy things this month. Here is a little recap.
|Craig and I explored the local Asian market and I learned how to make sushi|
|We went for a walk at sunset. It was absolutely gorgeous.|
|Before my first in-person interview I got my hair cut. It had been 1-2 years and was getting too long!|
|I had an interview right near the space needle. I was actually offered the job- but turned it down sadly because it didn't seem like a good fit. It was a hard decision!|
|I ran a 5K that started a few blocks for my house. It was just for fun; I hadn't trained for it specifically, but I ended up getting a PR: 27:43.|
|I went back to my old high school with my best friend and we saw their production of Guys and Dolls- a musical we had been in together back in middle school!|
|I got to hang out with my friend and her adorable sons for a bit at a local state park.|
|Craig's friends from the university came to UW to see the cherry blossoms. They took us to lunch after at this amazing all-you-can-eat hot pot (shabu-shabu) restaurant in Bellevue.|
|The UW campus has so many gorgeous, brick buildings.|
|The campus was super crowded, but I was able to get one photo without anyone in it!|
So life has been pretty great, overall! I will update on my running this month later this weekend (spoiler: I ran 100+ miles and 3 half marathons).
