Hey, lovelies. :) It's been what feels like a hundred years since I've been on here. Life got real crazy pretty quickly and stayed that way for a while. Here are some highlights.
• I graduated college! After five years, I finally got my BJ (Bachelor of Journalism Lololol). I've been applying for jobs for months and have had several interviews and turned down two jobs because they weren't quite right, which is really weird for a recent college graduate in a supposedly dying field. However, I am up for a job in Washington state that I would take in a heartbeat. Until then, I'm just hanging out in Nebraska, procrastinating on packing.
• Since graduating two weeks ago, I've actually gotten to read for the first time in ages. Books I've read: "The Night Gardener," "West of the Moon," "Divergent" and "Insurgent," "Looking for Alaska." Honestly, I'd recommend any of these. To the point that I'd be willing to pass them on if anyone is interested.
• I'm seeing a boy ... and it's complicated. There's this bar in town that does dollar beers on Tuesdays. I was there one Tuesday, standing out by the fire pit when this guy comes up to me and starts talking. He was super cute and nice, so I gave my number to him. And we started texting and made a date, which I nearly bailed on because dates with guys you meet at bars rarely work out and because I wanted to go home and cuddle with my cats. But I went, and damn I'm glad I did. I REALLY like him. He's a meteorology graduate student, and he's super nerdy but still really cute. And tall. So tall. His name is Eric, and honestly we're pretty perfect for each other. He met my best friend Sarah last night and it was awesome. She liked him a lot. And we slept of her couch together because we're really adorable. But. Here's the complicated part. I graduated. I'm going to move away. And he just accepted a job in Texas. So we see each other nearly every day, but there's no point in having the "are we dating?" talk because let's face it. We're not going to date long distance. We've only known each other for two months. And because Eric and I haven't had that talk, I'm still talking with Adam. Because I'm a dumbass.
• I lost my cat Toby. I have no idea how he got out. When I left my apartment, he was asleep in the bed. When I came back, he was gone. That was three weeks ago. I keep hoping that the Doctor just borrowed him and he'll show back up.
Anyway. Hope you guys are doing well. LJ is usually pretty dead in the summer, but I'll be thinking of you all as I look at your not-updated journals. <3
