moving out and moving on

July is finally here. We’ve been anticipating this for months. The trouble with the job hunt scared me, that our plan for me to move in with Jason was not going to go as smoothly as we had hoped. I have no idea how in the world I lucked out with GSI Commerce & Rue, but that part of moving plan went even better than expected! I got a job that I am actually interested in doing, making more money than I thought I would and it happened crazy fast these last couple of weeks, right when I’d given up hope and thought I was going to have to start applying for fast food and serving jobs (I actually told Jason I needed to get on it more than once…)

The job is not the most important thing though. I needed the job to be able to get to Jason… he’s the most important part of all of this!

After both saying we would never/never again live with anyone we were dating, we decided wanted to live together only after a few months of dating. It was never really a question, it’s never been scary, it’s never been a fear that it would make us fight, or hate one another. It’s been anticipation of the month of July, and wondering if it would ever get here!!!

I was officially offered my new job Tuesday, and accepted immediately! And they wanted me in two weeks— so in two weeks they will have me! Which means, moving asap. I’ve never been so happy to be packing up and moving!

I always dislike the moving things part, and like the unpacking and decorating part - I’ve moved every summer since 2005 because of college, and this is the first time that I don’t care to pack and move any of it. It’s like, I can’t get out of here fast enough.

I love my job (most days) and the people there, but it’s just not enough and it’s not where I want to be. And the new job is where I want to be, and it makes more money— if nothing else it can compensate for the loss of the people that I have spent the last year with. At least, that’s what I will keep telling myself if those thoughts creep up =) That, and I will be living with my incredible boyfriend who I have missed out on Monday through Friday for the length of our relationship…

A lot of people take things for granted. A co-worker once made the comment that it wasn’t fair that he “only saw his girlfriend through the week when he came home at night, and she was already in bed.” I was enraged when I heard this; all these months I would love to have had the option to sleep next to J when I came home at night. Now, finally I’ll get that!

I cannot get the word “excited” out of my vocabulary!

I feel like Jason and I just met yesterday, and now we’re moving in together… I love it. Only a few more days and I’m out of here!
