The Season Continues

Before we really dive into what happens next, you know for me, as Miss Vermont, let's knock out the first five questions I have been getting for the last 8 days.

How are you, you must be so tired huh?

Exhausted is putting it lightly. I'm the best kind of deliriously tired. Yes, I ran flat out for three weeks (yes, I'm including the week before I left, 'cause duh.) Yes, those were late nights, early mornings, and long days. Yes, it was two weeks of being on all the time. No, I have no idea when I will have time to actually catch up on sleep. Yes, I would love that coffee.

Was it amazing? I'm sure you had so much fun!

It was absolutely amazing, and loads of fun. And no, I cannot break down how magical every day of it was for you because I literally have no perception of how time worked while I was there. I don't remember on which day we went where, or visited what. But yes, so amazing.

Are you happy with the winner?

How could I not be? I got to watch Savvy's dream come true last Sunday. What the judges saw in her, and what America gets to see in her now, I so get it. She is already an outstanding Miss America. 

How do you feel, are you disappointed? 

Uh, we'll get there. But in short yes, and no.

Okay, but what happens next, right? The quick answer is that I get to keep having the best job ever. I'll still be Miss Vermont. I'll still be going to appearances, and traveling the state, and talking to people about my platform. Psst, book me, seriously if you know of something cool that's happening, tell me. I definitely want to come.  And yes, I'll also still work at The Hotel, and Pure Barre. 

So, nope, my plate is not getting any less full any time soon. That was the plan though. From the beginning, I knew I wanted a full and purposeful year as Miss Vermont. Coming home is just a confirmation that that is what I am supposed to be doing. 

In some regard things will get easier now, as I am not technically in prep anymore. Sure, I still plan 
on finding time for the gym as often as I can. And yes, I might entertain the idea of a social life now. But the truth is, I'm still planning on being the best dang Miss Vermont I can possibly be. And yeah, that means my life isn't going back to "normal" just quite yet. That is so okay.

Like I've said a hundred million times since May 27th, I just need to say it again, thank you everyone.

Thank you for cheering me on. Thank you for supporting me. Thank you for checking-in on me. Thank you for being there for me. Thank you for being on my team. Thank you for making the job of Miss Vermont so enjoyable, so cherish-able, and so doable.
