Long time, no entry... Let's fix that.

Oh hey there. It's been a while. A long while, really.  According to blogger, my last post was May 19.  Oops.

In the last month and a half (or thereabouts), I have...officially moved out of school for the last time in five years.  I still can't believe I put up living with 200+ other people for 5 years, 3 of which were spent as an RA.  Yes, it was mostly great, but I'm glad that period of my life is over.  It's nice having (free to me) laundry and food again, and just living with my parents and younger brother (though they annoy me some of the time, but hey, free rent and a roof over my head is nothing to balk at).

But anyhow.  My new GA job and classes have been pretty awesome so far.  I really love the people I work with/for, and I've been given a lot of responsibility with the position (going so far as to being trained on different computer software systems the other GA hasn't even been trained on and I don't know if they will...this is the double-edged sword of being detail oriented).  I don't want to go back to my other part-time job, so I've been applying for jobs at a lot of different places.  I'm hoping to hear back soon for an interview.

All but two of the grandkids with my grandparents.
In other family news, my grandfather is turning 80 next month.  So, my aunt held a family reunion a few weeks ago to celebrate his birthday early.  My mom is one of eight kids.  All of those 8 kids are either married or dating someone.  And they all have at least one kid.  To say it was a full house is an understatement.  Vic joined my family for the trek down to see everyone and it was overwhelming for both of us (he only has two cousins; I have twelve, ranging in age from 8-30; and that's just a ton of people).  All in all, it was a good time (even though we both got sunburned during a 10 1/2 mile canoe trip...).  I'm lucky to have such an amazing family and boyfriend.  I can't wait to spend my forever with him.  I look forward to our future together.  I'm the luckiest girl in the world to have such an amazing guy in my life.

Life is good.
