Feeling very, very, very happy

And no one can ruin that!

Things just feel so right. I love my job. Love, love, love it.

Today was such a good day- and it was Monday…and it was gross out! But I felt so happy!

HAPPPPYYYYYYYY!

Bout freakin time….

:D :D :D 

BEAMING!

So

Scott and I now own two brand new cars. 

As of yesterday, I still drive my 2012 Scion and he officially drives a 2012 Honda Accord.

Best part is WE pay for these cars. 

Not mommy or daddy. 

It’s a gratifying feeling… working your ass off and having something you more than deserve to show for it.

Sunday

Watching Dan in Real life.

Week old baby panda at Nat’l Zoo died.

I feel real emotional.

Dream.

I’ve had a lot on my mind lately, and I think it has to do with the fact that I have my first real world adult job.

I was so naive thinking that by June I would have a full time job. Whomp… Luckily I had an amazing ESL job (which I unfortunately have to leave), but applying for jobs gets discouraging. Scott and I literally talked about every option we had- including moving abroad. (We’re young. We can up and leave who cares?) 

But then I got the offer to work at my dream company. And I am beyond excited. 

You see, Scott and I pay for everything on our own. No help from Mommy and Daddy. I think I am more excited for Scott and I to breathe a little better because we’ve got a stable source of income in addition to what he makes. We’re going to be ok. Things get tight from time to time, but we make do. We’ve become better people for it- learning to budget, plan, pay, etc. 

And now it means the wedding planning can actually start. We can make the down payment on Budleigh, but we wanted to wait until we knew we could comfortably keep up with the payments. See, WE’RE paying for the wedding with LITTLE contributions from our families. We want to work towards what we want without having to compromise. That’s what our relationship has been: building on what is to create more. If that makes sense. 

And when I look in retrospect, I am smitten. I can’t stop smiling. I watched The Blindside last night and it made me think about where I’ve been and where I am now. I can’t watch that movie without balling for the first thirty minutes because it hits so close to home. Not having anywhere to sleep, not having lunch, and even taking naps in laundromats because it was out of the rain. I’m not kidding. I’ve been there. It sucks. But now I’ve got my dream job, my dream car, my dream guy, and I graduated from my dream school. If you would have told me 10 years ago that I’d be where I am now, I would have laughed in your face and told you that you were absolutely crazy.

But here I am, we are, and I couldn’t be happier or more blessed. I am thrilled to have someone beside my side that will be there for life. And I did it all without being spoiled, without being given everything that I’ve got. 

I’m so happy; and it makes me smile even more to see people who can’t do what I’ve done. 

Here’s to a real-world, adult, 401k savings plan, full time dream job. (:

Things you can’t unsee

The spacing of “Madison” in the FedEx Field end zone. 

It’s like they started off painting with the mentality of “Hey…We need to be considerate of the spacing and letters.” Then as they got closer to being done, they were like “Oh shit now we gotta spread it all out…”

It bugs me. Still cool. But noticeable.

You’re welcome.

ATTENTION ALL MRDS

if you’re feeling a little angsty and want to defend you fellow peers head on over to jmusportsblog.com and read the comments of the guest post.

one guy mentions that the MRDS ARE NOT TOUGH. 

go. comment back.

i can’t stand when people underestimate the MRDs.

This makes me angry. 


I stumble across JMU MRD tweets from time to time. The animosity makes me laugh, and the praise makes me smile. This makes me shake my head. 

There is NO reason to stereotype anyone for the activity in which they partake. We’ve had straight guys spin- but why does it matter? Your assumptions make you look stupid and ignorant. 

JMU has plenty of people who are open minded; but the closed minded ones are the worst to come by. JMU is the best place to learn to accept things that you may not be used to; and when you see someone like this jackass degrade someone for participating in the arts- there’s nothing to do but wonder and feel sorry for such an idiot.

This really makes me angry.

Whatever. Can we talk about how this guy isn’t repping football or sme MANLY STRAIGHT sport? Lacrosse.
