|From Terrier to Cardinal?|
The news forces the question though - am I ready to haul out to Washington DC after just one measly year in Los Angeles? Maybe it's time for another change of pace - away from the frenetic rush of teaching middle school 55 hours a week, and back into the steady churn of higher education. The theoretical side of my brain has begun to atrophy.
In any case, I now find myself with more than a few options. Washington DC, Los Angeles, maybe Pittsburgh, and I have been considering moving to France to teach English. I had been wondering what the right choice might be, and how to begin making that decision. I have friends in all of those cities and a million external reasons to choose each place, so I wasn't sure how I would begin to make that choice. Recently though, I had a few doors slam in my face - perfect timing really - so it seems that God is helping me to make this discernment about me. I have a habit of making decisions based on other people rather than for myself, but I think this next year is clearly going to be about what I need.
