So super long time no post. Thanks to yoursoulkitchen
, you're getting an entry. :P
I don't even know where to begin honestly. It's been so long since I've actually tried to sit and write an journal entry.
Not much has really changed in my life since my last update (despite how brief it was). I'm still working at the forklift company doing accounts payable and basic secretarial duties. When there's not much going on at work, I basically spend my day on the internet. Not the most professional, but I would be bored out of my mind if I didn't have access to the internet. I've also been doing a lot of the advertising and graphic work for the company and the new weight loss center my boss opened up. It's been fun and stressful at the same time because I am not a good graphics person. And of course, despite making 3x more than what I was making at the tanning salon, I still don't have a penny to my name. Lol. I'm trying so hard to pay off my debt and it just takes a toll on my wallet. Thankfully I still live with my parents and they don't make me pay any rent/utilities. Though my mom did pass my car not and insurance over to me so that's a big part of me not having any extra money. OTL.
The boyfriend and I are doing really good. We still have our hangups, but I'm pretty sure all couples do. It's still a learning experience for me, but things are starting to get serious. We're talking about buying a house in the next year (because buying is cheaper than renting around here) and talk of engagement has come up as well. I know we've only been dating for about a year now, but to me this is better than waiting 3 months. Like I said though, some of these things won't be for another year or so. So we're not rushing anything. And if we do get engaged sooner, there won't be a wedding for at least another couple of years.
I'm also in the process of getting a husky puppy! I have a deposit down with a breeder in Arkansas and I'm just waiting for them to have puppies. I'm going to find out if this litter that's due in November will be my time or if I have to wait another several months. I will be sad, but it might be for the best. My stepdad isn't particularly happy about me getting a dog, but I honestly need a dog in my life. I've always wanted a husky and I have been doing research for several months on this breed and believe that I can handle it. It's going to be difficult because huskies are not like other dogs, but I'm ready for the challenge - mentally and physically.
Not sure what else....
The boyfriend and I are going to Oktoberfest next weekend with some friends of his. It should be fun. We went to his friend's wedding last night in Gonzales at a really cute venue and I got to meet a few of his friends from college. We're probably going to end up meeting with all of them next weekend. I'll probably be the only sober one there, since I don't drink beer (or really drink at all). Lol.
Halloween is coming up and I'm excited about it! Unfortunately I still haven't decorated the house because no one will help me get the decorations out of the attic. I always hate waiting until a week before to decorate, but it looks like no one else in our neighborhood has decorated either. It's such a shame. This is one of my favorite holidays and it just seems that no one cares anymore. :( Our city is putting on a Halloween festival called the Rougarou Festival. There's going to be a zombie run, costume contest, and movies playing. I'm really hoping it gets a good turnout and they do this every year. I'm excited about it at least!
And I think that's about it.
Here's a pic of me and Sunny from this morning. (I look hungover. Lol.)
It took me about 5 minutes to remember how to code a link like that. *facepalm*
