Man, it's been a while since I've done this.. how're things with you, good? Good. Well then, let's get started.
These past few months have been some of the most interesting months in my life. For starters, I'm in a relationship now! Like, a relationship relationship! With an actual woman! Her name is Dolores, and she's as awesome as awesome can be. One of the few people on this planet who actually gets me, we started dating a little over three months ago, shattering my previous relationship record by 50%, and the spread is only going to widen from here!
I'm glad to finally see what all the fuss is about. There really is nothing like having a genuine connection with someone. Our interests are similar enough that we have plenty to talk about and can relate to eachother on, but different enough that things stay fresh and we're constantly learning new things about eachother. She's smart, funny, beautiful, cool, she's a gamer, likes the internet, and friggin' loves my ass.
That's ass as in my whole being, although I don't think she has any complaints about my ass, either.
I met her initially through DJ, my #2 over the past few years and her brother. I had a high level of anticipation in going to meet her, as the majority of what was told to me regarding her was "You're going to love her, man, I really hope you guys hook up!" Thos of you who know me know that this is the exact sort of thing to turn me off of a person even before I meet them. I don't like presumptions, and when people tell me things like that, I'm basically guaranteed not to like the person in question at all.
Still, we met, and I did an internal fist-pump and thought "Yesssss!"
I played it cool enough, though, and she actually liked me. She was only vacationing down here at the time, but moved down three months later (pre-existing plan) and at that point, we hooked up.
Like I said, it's been great. She's introduced me to Sushi and the wonders of cheesy horror flicks, I've introduced her to Checker's fries and... umm... the glory that is me? Sorry, the words are failing me now. My mind's going faster than my hands are capable of going. I'm too sober!
Annnnnnnnnnyway... the past few weeks in particular have been busy. I'm going to cut out the gory details because frankly, it's none of your goddamn business. In short, though, I don't think DJ and I are friends anymore, Dolores no longer lives with him, and we're on the cusp of moving in together at our friends Danny and Kris's house. I'm really looking forward to it, both in the sense that I no longer have to drive 10 minutes out of my way to brush my teeth and change my clothes, and I'll be paying roughly 75% less in monthly expenses. I'm finally going to be able to be ahead of the curve, and that's fantastic.
Also, a note to all you naysayers, I'm 1 semester from completing my AA degree. Nothing compared to all of you who are in Grad School and beyond, but it's a personal milestone, and I'm proud of me, at least!
So what's next? Well, I'll naturally be finishing out my AA in the fall, but beyond that, who knows? I'm not going to be able to stay in this region for long after that point, since I'll need to find a school that has a decent bachelor's program in psychology, plus I have the needs of my lady to consider. I'm not worried, though. The universe tends to unfold as it will, and I'm good at figuring out where I'm supposed to be at the right time.
Work's good, too! Hopefully I'll be getting a raise next month.
That's about all I have the patience to write for now. Y'all niggas keep it real, aaaite?
- Whoa! An update!
