The last few weeks have been relatively uneventful with some wonderful people, good tournaments, and some crazy weather but that's about it. I played well at the Texas Women's tournament and came in 2nd. I got to spend a few days in Austin, Texas which really just makes me miss Portland!!!
Texas has been fun. It's a lot prettier than I expected, with lots of trees and humidity which reminds me of my home in Wisconsin. I caddied (for Eric) and vended at the Texas State Championships and Sunday was a whole slew of different weather throughout the day but we survived. I got the play the bEast course which is easily in my top 10 so far. If you ever get a chance to stop in Waco, TX and have a few hours, go play the bEast!
Tour life set in really easily for me. Living out of my car, or in an RV or hotel, it's grown on me really quickly, I like it and it's surprisingly comfortable. But... then my old boss called.
So I was presented with an opportunity that I really can't pass up. My old bank in Portland needs me for a few months starting around mid May, and I was offered whatever schedule I wanted and enough of an incentive that I just flat out have to do it. What this means for me:
Huge financial stability
More flying to tournaments instead of driving
A long distance relationship again
Spending another summer in Portland with my favorite people and courses
A really good future
What this means for you:
More pictures of airports instead of car windows
It's not something I expected, nor is it REALLY what I wanted right now but it is a great opportunity to set up my future self to be able to tour HARD and have some real stability. I will still be playing everything on my list with one exception. I will still run Whale Sacs. I will still train, but on my lunch break and after work. I could be done as soon as August, or go at it for a few more months. Whale just have to see. :D
Wish me luck, and I promise, I'm still living my dream, I'm just going to be WAY more comfortable after these few months are over.
Throw Frisbees. Follow Your Dreams. aaaaaannnndddd Recognize Opportunity when it falls in your lap.
Love you all!
