Things in my life are finally looking up.

I changed jobs. Even though I'm in a temporary position right now, I'm working full-time and I'm fairly confident that I will be a permanent worker with this company by the end of 2012. This is a proper 8:30-5pm office job and I have weekends off for the first time in months.

Finally, I have a purpose. I don't feel guilty for working only 15-20 hour weeks while Will works his butt off cooking at the restaurant, a popular diner chain that many who aren't familiar with mistake for a hotel. I'm going to be able to make enough money to pay my bills, and even buy menial things like tissues, shampoo, paper towels, toiletries. I took all of this for granted until I was unable to buy them.

We have less time together now, unfortunately, but that makes the time we do have sweeter. This has been one of the best weekends I have had this year, if not in the entire time since I've been back from Japan.

Tomorrow is our 2 year anniversary. I'm so happy we've made it this long.

In the past year and a half since I posted here, a world of change has happened to me. I found love, made some mistakes, got terribly hurt, but still, the boy and I manage. I went to Japan and thrived. I returned to America and graduated. I'm on the verge of getting my first proper salaried job, and maybe I'll even be engaged by the end of 2012.

I have a permanent account with a pretty layout that took me a few days worth of work over at LiveJournal. I have well over 200 slots for userpics, a handful of pictures uploaded, and a structured tag system.

Most of these things I can bring to DreamWidth some way or another, but that they already exist elsewhere makes it incredibly difficult for me to fully migrate here. But I am so annoyed with everything LiveJournal has been doing, and these new comment pages are ridiculous. With as many people as I've seen complain about it, something tells me it will be changed back by the end of the week, or even end of the year.

But if they don't?

Gah...thanks for "fixing" something that wasn't broken, LJ.

I have been without internet since Monday evening.

I don't know why it happened, but I was able to get it back this morning. I'm not exactly able to afford my own internet yet, so I've been hesitantly borrowing the one open connection around here. I'm kind of holding my breath now, but it seems to be okay. It kicked me off once a few minutes ago but miraculously came back.

I've been pretty bored without it. I've tried to keep busy by reading, watching movies, television (I marathoned S2 of Mad Men), dramas, cleaning...when you have no money, no cable, and no new things happening, I was surprised that even a recluse like me went stir-crazy. Sometimes I'd lie on my living room floor and stare at the ceiling. Pathetic.

I love my apartment still. I started work again too. Not too many hours this week, but we'll see how it goes when school actually starts. I want to get this coming weekend over with.

Pictures maybe later today, but my bathroom still isn't finished. =/ I still need a bathmat that either has strawberries or is red. A tissue box cover wouldn't hurt too, because the blue box I have really clashes.

I straightened my hair by myself for the first time Tuesday night. It took about two hours, and man, do I need a haircut. It's too long and fluffy. I think I'm going to shower before going out today in order to bring the curls back. Maybe after I can afford a haircut I'll start doing it again.

I have a boyfriend.


I just want to sleep in instead of go to work.
