it is a slow day at work. so slow, in fact, that i decided to come check out livejournal and see what's up. in doing this, i've realized that i haven't updated my lj in over a year. damn.. a lot of shit has happened since july last year. i will do my very best to update on everything, but i'm not even sure anyone will read this.. soooo.. whatev.
lets start with the big things:
- i got a new job. yes, my friends, i have left blockbuster and joined the 9-5 world. i work for a publishing company. we put out stock reccomendations. i do customer service so i answer phones and emails all day. when its slow, like today, i sit online all day and wander around. its cake. and pays wayyyy ridiculously better than blockbuster. although.. i think i may work one or two days a month for blockbuster still. can't really say no to extra cash :)
- tony and i moved out from my mom's in canton.. to his mom's basement in dundalk.. stayed there for a few months, then moved in with mandy and steven in hamilton. Things were a bit hectic there, with a newborn, 3 cats and 3 dogs along with tony and i and mandy and steven. we couldn't take being cooped up in a bedroom all the time, so we found ourselves an apartment in dundalk. we're so happy. we moved in at the very end of june. its perfect for us. its quiet and peaceful, and i'm just thrilled to walk around naked all the time :) now all we have to do is work on budgetting our money so we can live comfortably. its been pretty stressful but i think we'll be alright.
- wedding date is set for oct. 31st, 2008. georgia and i are on a hunt for the best place to have it. i already bought my dress.. its staying with my grandfather so i'm not tempted to wear it everyday and ruin it. i'm really excited about it. obviously if you've read my livejournal since the begining you know how long i've been waiting for this. its like all the bullshit i went through was just that.. and it was worth it. all of it. because a)i can say i told you so to everyone who doubted me or what i felt for tony. b)because well duh.. i get to marry the love of my life, the one.
i think thats all for the big things.. a lot of other things have happened, as things tend to do over the course of a year.. umm.. i started modeling..nothing spectacular, just pin-up stuff mostly and i only work with a select couple of photographers. i'm in it for fun, not for a career. you can see some pics on myspace.... uhhh.. my hair is getting longer, past my shoulders now.. i'm growing it out for the wedding. my grandfather (dad's dad) passed away about a month ago. it was a sad time for the whole family. speaking of my dad, we're on pretty good terms now and i'm really happy about that. and i think he likes tony. i never needed anyone's approval of who i loved, but having my family like the person i'm spending the rest of my life with is important to me. my friends are fantastic. my family is wonderful. the people i work with are awesome. everything in my life is coming together so nicely it makes me wonder why i was such a whiney bitch just a few years ago. it makes me glad i held on and stuck it out through all the bad times. makes me proud to know i got here on my own.
alright.. i think thats enough for now. i'll probably update more now that i have all this free time at work hahaha.
soo... how have all of YOU been?
