I'm a New Mexican! :)
Woahhhh! Can it be? I see that it has been OVER two months since I last wrote anything and that is just downright lame! It is funny for me to look at the last post I wrote which touch upon a new assignment I had been given working on key accounts. Oddly enough, this one is somewhat of the same announcement...I was promoted! :) I am now working as a Territory Sales Manger over grocery stores all over the West Albuquerque area. I am/was totally surprised/honored/flattered/nervous/excited in the matter of a 5 minute span when my boss offered me the position for lots of different reasons. You know I believe I was itching to move in a way and God answered my prayers in a funny way I would say. I think time and again I am reminded that God's plans for my life sometimes do not come close to the ones I have in mind. Example A, I dont know anybody in the state of New Mexico (and I feel like I know a lot of people from a lot of different states). I don't know that I have ever prayed for God to move me to NM, but I am totally surprised how different my predicition of what ABQ would be like was from the truth that I know thus far. So far I have discovered that NM is way more like CO than AZ. Did you know that Albuquerque is actually at a HIGHER elevation than Denver? Weird, right?! So what does that mean or why do I care? Well the last month of my half marathon training will involve RUNNING in that! I think I was a little apprehensive about that idea earlier on, but to be honest, I think K and I are ready for the race! I am actually really excited about it now! I figure if I can train in the mountains, flat Phoenix should be cake right? Hopefully so...I guess the biggest obstacle right off the bat here has been the realization I have no friends in this state yet. I feel like it is completely different moving to a new city for a job than for school, because I remember not knowing a soul at ASU. It was a bit different because I knew I would find friends through all of the clubs I could be involved in. I am still in the process of finding what ABQ has to offer, so if anyone is aware of anything to do LET ME KNOW! :) I am in the process of unpacking still as I was moved into my nice 1 bedroom apartment a few days ago, so I am off! I will update on the job, place, and area in the near future, so stay tuned!
