One year ago today, Alex and I moved to California. We had one way airline tickets from San Antonio, Texas to San Jose, California. John had moved out here about a month before us to begin his new job.
There have been so many changes in the past year. I started a new job as an academic advisor at San Jose State University and Alex started a new preschool/daycare. We had family and friends come out to visit. We took a trip to Disneyland. We have met lots of new people and visited new places. I taught a freshmen seminar class in the fall. We moved to a rental house. We wrapped up the year visiting our family and friends in Ohio.
After all of these changes and new things, I still need some time to settle in to life in California. Maybe another year? Along the way, I am trying to learn, grow, and enjoy it all.
