Ok, so the last post was kind of a run-through of what has been going on for the past few months, but I'll try an elaborate here because I didn't really do justice to some things.

Getting engaged (unabridged)Collapse )

I just got a raise at work, 1k more a year, which is promising. Still trying to determine whether or not I think it's worth sticking around for, but when it comes down to it, I don't have too much of a choice right at the moment. That's ok, though.

Our roommate, Justine's brother, is moving out. At first we were concerned that it would leave us in a bind, but now we're starting to see it as a blessing. We'll have two bedroom apartment at a very good price and in a nice neighborhood. It's the perfect size for a couple, and then rather than getting a roommate, we're going to try and go it alone, and turn the extra bedroom into a reading room and relaxation space. We're both really excited about the extra space, not to mention the extra privacy and control. Ninety percent of the troubles we've had over the past eight months have been due to disagreements with roommates. We both feel it's about time to ditch the extra baggage and try living on our own, so this will be a good opportunity, I think.

I'm in the process of getting my highschool and college transcripts, so that I can apply for school again in the fall. I'm going to finish up my AA, with a discipline change to art, and then when Justine starts looking into colleges with a poetry program, we're going to be looking for art colleges for me in the same area. I'm excited about going back to school - I feel like my life is starting to get back on track again. It feels good.

My spiritual path is unfolding too. I think the next six to nine months are going to be really good. Good things happen when you follow your spirit. Good things happens when you follow your heart.

Today will begin my 4th week living and working in St. Petersburg. Work is going good so far - finally starting to get into the swing of things. In essence, I work for the company that makes the registers used at CiCi's pizza.

I've been sleeping on the couch of Justine's brother for the past 3 weeks. This past weekend, Justine and I loaded up my car with all of our smaller possessions and are now, at least partially, moved in to our apartment. We're living in Old Southeast with Justine's sister until at least December when the lease runs up. Then, depending on how things go, we may renew the lease or we may find our own place. We live about a block from the Tampa Bay. The neighborhood is working class, but nice and quiet. I work, however, in the ghetto, next to a CiCi's. But! At least it's only 10 minutes from my apartment, instead of an hour like when I was in Orlando.

Small stuff is moved in, as I said, and furniture will be coming next week. Following that, we'll probably organize some kind of housewarming party. Let me know if you're interested in driving 2+ hours to hang out. ;)

Anyway, this is it...

Now that I have a computer at home, I might be able to get online a little more, but it will still be sporadic until I get my own box in place. For the time being though, I am more than satisfied with having my g/f, a room, and my records.

For those who don't follow me on twitter,

I have a job interview on Monday in St. Petersburg for a Linux support position. The company is called R-Stream. I've already had a phone interview and was told I had a pretty good interview. I know it's not a done deal, but I'm pretty excited. If I get in, I'll be in St. Pete within 2-3 weeks. Justine's brother has offered me a place to couch surf for a month or so until I have enough cash to get an apartment. Speaking of, there are a couple of nice downtown apartments on craigslist for ~$595 a month.

Anyway, wish me luck! This is it.
