First, I just want to say, WHY is the password for this site so dang hard?! I had to put it in my phone because there is NO WAY I can remember it. Anyone know of a way to change it into something I can remember?
Second, I just got my first “Email Blast” from TFA-Oklahoma and while it was VERY lengthy, it got me really excited. Of course anything that remotely mentions TFA gets me pretty excited.
Third, I am struggling with figuring out if I want to stay in Tulsa or if I want to request to go to OKC. I realize many people do not get this decision but because OKC is new this year we get to request to go either place with TFA making the final decision. I have lived in Tulsa my entire life, with the exception of the 4 years in Stillwater which is an hour between both cities. It would be EASY to stay in Tulsa. I have family here, a home I can live in until I get settled financially enough to move out, and a mother that would by my groceries for me everyday. It would be EASY to stay in Tulsa. I am struggling because the reason I chose TFA (besides wanting to help children, and reduce the achievement gap) was because I needed a change from my normal. When I found out OKC was an option I began to think alot. OKC would be different, I would have to depend on myself for a change, I would have to budget better, I would have to get out there and make friends. Although it wouldn’t be EASY, it would be a change from my normal.
So I guess I will keep thinking. I would love some advice even though I know in the end it is what my head and heart decide, but advice is always helpful.
