When I first started looking at law schools last fall, Seth and I sat down and kind of picked out schools according to where we could see ourselves living should law school take us away from Salt Lake. For those who don't know, Seth works in marketing and advertising so we couldn't have moved just anywhere if he was going to be able to continue in this field and have a chance for growth in his own career, so we looked mostly at bigger cities. For me, D.C. was kind of a dream because of my political aspirations and since I grew up close by. Anyway, I got my first acceptance letter from a school in Minneapolis. While we were both happy at that moment to know that I would definitely be able to go to law school, we were even happier when the next letter came in (from American University coincidentally) and we knew we wouldn't have to move to Minneapolis :D Well, after all was said and done, Seth and I sat down, discussed the options, and chose that a move to D.C. where I would attend the American University Washington College of Law would be best.
Now came the hard part - Seth finding a job. In our current state of affairs with such a struggling economy and even rougher job market, we knew it was going to be an uphill battle for Seth to find employment, especially in a good job in his field. Well, Seth doesn't have the nickname "Mega Seth" for no reason! He took the bull by the horns and actively marketed himself to agencies in D.C. and, within about a month, was offered a job at Essential Media Partners in downtown D.C....and he never even had a face to face in person interview!!! Yeah, I was pretty amazed myself but I knew he could do it and it made me feel even more sure that D.C. was meant to be!!!
Seth has now been working for a week and is really enjoying his new job. Although the first few days were a little rough having to commute from my Mom's house, it's a lot easier now that we are all moved in to our place and he can hop on the Metro to get to work! As for me, well, I guess you could say I have been busy too ;D I spent this week unpacking all of our stuff and getting the house in order (I even had time to get a little tan in haha!). Also, two of my best girlfriends are moving to D.C. and will be staying with us for a couple of weeks until they move in to their new place. Anyway, needless to say from all that will be going on over the next few weeks between Seth's job, the random things we already have planned to do, and Brooke and Amy staying with us for a while, I have no doubt that many more interesting posts are soon to come :Our nation's Capitol on the 4th of July.
