In recent months I’ve avoided posting very personal content on my blog, but I think it’s due time for an update.
After three and a half [mostly] blissful years in Southern California, I’ve decided to move on. And while I’m sad to close the book on this chapter, I’m really excited about the things ahead.
I’ll be living in DC: an exciting, vibrant city with which I’m completely enamored. I’ll miss the 350 days of sunshine, the abundance of palm trees, and the Pinterest-perfect ocean views but I’m excited for the culture, the history, and of course, an entire new city of restaurants to try!
In about a month, once I settle in, I’ll start grad school at Georgetown. I’ve always known that I wanted to go back to school for an MBA and about a year ago I decided I was ready. Of course, as luck would have it, all of the admissions deadlines had just passed. Business schools don’t allow students to enroll in January, so I had the entire year to plan, research, study, and apply. I worked my butt off. I woke up at 5AM everyday for months so that I could study for the GMAT before work. I drove to LA and back several times for dinners and forums and interviews. And now that the application process is over, I’m thrilled with how everything worked out. As Sophia Amoruso would say, “I [got] what I want[ed] because I work[ed] for it.” And I’ve gotta say, it feels really good.
But first, an adventure….
