I really don't know where to begin.

Alright... I'll try to get back to this. I mean, A) my life is more interesting now than it ever was(unless you were a college buddy of mine, in which case, you now drink in REMEMBRANCE of me instead of WITH me), and B) there are actually people to keep informed as to my life now. It's weird - I found it much easier to blog when I saw all my readers every day. And now that I live halfway across the country, I'm all like "uhhh..."

Seriously. I'm all like that.

Ok, first, I need to update myself real quick. When was the last post?

Job hunting, May 24th... Ok, so I was engaged, just finished at Kaplan... Ok, I finished the post by saying I'd let you guys know if I got a job, so that's where we'll start.

Yes. I got a job. I now work in the IT department of a famous nationwide department store, at the corporate location. Technically, I'm still just a "contract employee" - meaning I work side-by-side with the regular employees, but my paychecks come from my contracting company, and my ID card is a different color. It also means that I get paid less and my opinion is meaningless. But hell, it's WORK!

A full time job to help support my famiOH CRAP! Right, you guys don't know(haha) - I got married!
Take THAT, loser kid who never had a date to prom! Or... a prom to go to, regardless...

So yes, Leah and I tied the knot on October 9th, 2010, much to the delight of all involved. Nobody objected, Leah said "yes", all that good stuff. The ONLY bad thing is that, if my life is truly a TV show(as we all know it is), it's definitely jumped the shark. You guys know what I'm talking about:

"Oh, Chandler and Monica got married? Huh... their relationship is a lot less hilarious now." Suddenly wacky relationship disasters go from "Haha, how's he gonna get out of THIS one?!" to "That's sad... they're having marital troubles."
Hell, it's already started. I mean, look how rarely I update now! I can place blame squarely on my marriage. It's not a bad thing, it's just kinda ironic. Now that I have something to write about, I no longer have time to write it!

The other thing is... all the new stuff isn't really interesting to read about, but it's still new experiences for me. Everything from paying bills, to having my own place, to having a real job, it sounds dreadfully boring, but not to someone who's been waiting to be at this point in his life for a long time. I was never a "I don't wanna grow up!" sorta kid... I was a "Just wait 'till I'm making six figures, and you're serving time for petty theft! THEN we'll see who has the power! AH-HA HA HA HAA!!!!" kinda kid.

To answer your question - no, I'm not making six figures. Dream. On.

By the way, if you want to know how exciting my job is - I'm blogging at work. :)

I think I've made this analogy before, but blogging is a lot like confession. It's difficult to do TOO often because you don't have all that much to say, and if you wait too LONG, it becomes REALLY difficult because it's kind of embarrassing. That's where I'm at now. I could give more details about my feelings of married life, or my job, or my apartment... But I'm not gonna do that stuff. So, deal.

Oh, hey, Leah and I are flying back to Virginia this weekend! Really looking forward to seeing the fam. I still can't get over the fact that I pissed and moaned SO MUCH every time one of my siblings moved out, and demanded that they stay nearby, and then I promptly moved several states away. But hey - that's just the way it is.

... Some things will never change...

Sorry, that song's been going through my head all damn day.

Ok, that's all I got for now. Next post should be better - there'll be less to cover.


P.S. If my next post is 6 months later, I quit.
