I went to make a post a couple of months ago, ended up with a SUPER long post and lost it in an accidental browser close. So it's been a while...
I'd just like to give everyone an update on my life thus far. Chris and I are six months strong and getting stronger every day. It's a wonderfully healthy relationship when I've had a slew of really shitty ones. I love him so much. He lifts me up, I lift him up... bla bla bla, mushy stuff!
So good news so far. I'm back in schoo. I start with one class starting next month. I'll be getting my AA or AS (I don't remember which) from Valencia Community College. I'll be studying Business Management with a direct feed into UCF becuase it's not a restriced program. There's also the possibility that I'll spend a little extra time at VCC and also get my AAS in Small Business Management. Those may transfer over as electives to the UCF business program and it will give me my specialization in Small Business.
I've been with Comcast for 6 months as of Monday. Doing well there. It's a call center job but it's one I'm enjoying. I'm trained as High Speed Internet tech support. I'll be getting cross training in Video troubleshooting, Digital Voice (the Comcast phone service), and maybe billing. I'm also hoping to move off the phones and into a job in the training department. I've put my bid in, my Supervisor knows I want it. The training department knows I want it. Hopefully something opens up before the second half of the year. Things are looking up though. And the benefits are awesome.
Speaking of Comcast benefits... I JUST BOUGHT MY FIRST NEW CAR!!! It was earlier than I wanted to get one. Chris and I were thinking about buying a new one in a couple of months becuase his car isn't doing well and we poured four grand into it. Then his car almost didn't start about half a dozen times in the last two days. So we bit the bullet and signed the papers. I am now the proud owner of a seventies retro green Ford Focus "green line". Manual tranny , which is funny becuase I don't know how to drive one so I couldn't drive my new car off the lot. And thanks to Comcast we took about $1,000 off the sticker price and got $1,500 from Ford for the down. We put $1,200 down. I'm happy. Chris is teaching me to drive it tomorrow.
Then there's the really great news: we're moving! After all the bull here at Country Place, I just found out they're changing the management. They want more money for my shitty little apartment. So we're moving. We got apporved at a place in Metro West, right next to Jake and Lana acutally. It's three bedroom, two and a half bath, three story town house. Washer/dryer hook-ups so we can get our own appliences. Chris used to work at Applience direct so he's thrilled. The first floor is a garage. Living, dining, kitchen & one bed on the second floor. Third floor is two beds and two full baths. We're being greedy and keeping the third floor all to ourselves. Guest room on the second floor. We're giddy.
So that's my life. It's turnign around. Even with moving expenses an emergency car issue came up and we could afford it. It'll be tight for the next couple of months. But we've saved, so we're okay!
And that's my update.
Love you all, whoever's out there.
