I am home completely alone for the first time in I have no idea how long. It’s really nice. I forgot how much I love being by myself. I napped, had chips and dip for breakfast, lay in bed doing nothing but scroll through my phone and think, and did some laundry (proof that I wasn’t completely unproductive). It was perfect. I love mornings like this.
Everything else has been busy and good. I have been at weddings/wedding related events for the last three weekends, and I will be for the next three (including today). I don’t dislike weddings, but I’m over it. The only one I’ve been legitimately excited for us the one tonight. It’s two dear friends that I’ve known for 10+ years. And they know how to party. 🙂
I harassed my college into letting me graduate next spring. There was an issue with the electives I need vs the ones being offered. I submitted a substition request, got denied, made some phone calls, wrote a letter, bugged my advisor a lot, submitted another request, and viola. It’s crazy how difficult and time consuming it was. If I were less tenacious about it, I would be in educational limbo for who knows how long. The only thing that sucks is that I have to take two day classes for 2 hours and 45 minutes each week, so I will have to use PTO for that. A sacrifice I’ll have to make.
My boyfriend bought a house, and I’m moving in. He closes in November. I am excited but nervous too. I basically live there already. I stay there every night, I eat there, we buy groceries together and keep them at his place, I clean, I have two sets of toiletries, etc. There is just something daunting about completely giving up my own space. I am so ready to take this next step with him, though.
My traditional, religious mother was less than happy with me when I told her. She still isn’t, but hasn’t brought it up. I’m hoping she will get over it soon. She had my sister before she was married, plus my sister has three kids and is single, and my brother lived with his ex. I personally don’t have an issue with any of these things because I believe people can do whatever they want with their lives, but they don’t fit with her values. I’m sure she just needs time. My dad was 1000x more supportive, and that felt really good.
I got a free ticket to a country concert last night, because my co-worker’s husband works at a radio station. I was so happy she asked. I went with her, her husband, and another co-worker I didn’t know too well. I had a lot of fun! The show was awesome. I got pretty drunk and briefly remember having a heart-to- heart with one of them. Kind of embarrassing. But hey, I have to do embarrassing stuff once in awhile to keep me modest, ha. Since I rarely drink anymore, it’s much more of an uncommon event.
That’s about everything for now. I should really write more.
