I’ve been drawn to the color grey lately, like wolf cub grey, or foggy overcast grey, but not smoky ash grey. I’ve been attracted to the way it looks painted on the exterior of a house, or when looking for new linens. It feels calm and not overwhelming happy like sky blue, slightly pessimistic maybe. The color feels very Pacific Northwest and I am thinking this is where I’d like to spend the next few years. I’ve started researching nursing schools again and thus far, my short list is only two schools in San Francisco, two schools in Seattle. I don’t think that is enough. I could be rejected from all four. I’m looking for schools in cities in which I am willingly to live and practice for at least two years post graduation. I still like being close to the mountains and the ocean.
