Why hello! On my lunch break and wanted to update this. I get this urge every year or so or sometimes more, to come back to my old "stomping ground" and update. I have no reason why. Maybe one day it'll fade or pass and I won't update any longer. Since I'm 100% no one uses Live Journal anymore. At least...not anyone that I know.
Anyways, updates, updates.
Work: Going along very well. I went to the UK for work last summer and that was a great experience. I'll probably be going back this year, not 100% sure though. Depends on budgets and timing. I've been at Integralis for 2.5 years now. Kicking ass and taking names. I run an entire department and am one of the top revenue generating people in the US. I got added to the comp plan back in March (potential to earn 40% of my base) and just recently got a 6 grand bump in my base salary, plus 5 extra PTO days. So besides the usually complaints about a job and the weirdness that is my company, things are going well. Well enough that I'll deal with it now that I'm making more lol.
Life: Life is going along well. I'm very content with where I'm at. I guess the biggest update is with my dating life. I've got myself a boyfriend again! lol. I spent a year and a half single. (From June 2010 until December 2011). And it was an interesting experience. Dated a bit, had a complicated friends with benefits situation w/a coworker go a bit haywire, and spent some time alone contemplating my life. And then I met Robby! Very unexpectedly, to be honest. I wasn't planning on it, but there he was. We just celebrated our 6 month anniversary last wknd. We have our ups and downs, but it's really good. He's very patient with me when I start to close off because of all the issues I never realized I had from my exes. And I'm patient when he's a big dumb boy (and I mean big...he's a foot and a half taller than me!! 6'5"!!). lol. Due to some circumstances that are none of live journal's business (ha), we've been living together since...well almost the first week we met. It was a temporary situation turned permanent when we realized we liked living together and it was working fabulously. He's my boy and I'm very happy to have him. He treats me very well, how I've been wanting to be treated since Jim and I broke up (and a bit before that, to be honest...). My mom and brother have met him and adore him. And he loves them as well. We actually go to visit my mom once a month, sometimes more, depending on what we have going on. It's usually his suggestion too! It's nice to have someone who can interact with my family. We have a really great thing going on. He can hang out with my friends and I hang out with his friends. We have alone time and time together. I'm really excited to see where this goes. We're able to talk serious, but we also laugh. A lot. We have a lot of fun when we're together. It's refreshing.
The other somewhat interesting update is that I cut my hair!! AHHHHH! I've been growing it out for at least 2 years. It was really long and I chopped it off on Friday. It rests around my shoulders. And guess what??! I LOVE IT. Everyone loves it as well. I'm so happy that I did it...and that Robby helped me get the courage to do so. See, what a great boyfriend, right? haha.
So yeah. That's my update. I'm leaving out all the bad stuff, with friends, life, etc. Because why put everyone in a bad mood? Plus, I've moved on, grown stronger, and life is honestly going along so well right now. I feel like I'm finally coming into my own. That my life is finally going the way that it should. And that's an amazing feeling. :)
