No, I'm not getting married, but thank you for telling me how I should plan my wedding...

So, I happen to know a few people who are getting married within the next year. And apparently this means that I must be getting married soon as well. This past weekend, the questions varied from the uncomfortable, "So, have you and Andrew talked about getting married?" to the downright presumptuous, "When you and Andrew get married, you can't wear heels. Well, not high heels at least."

What is it with you people??? I'm 22 years old. Yes, we've been dating for 3 and a half years. So what? What's the big freaking rush? I'm certainly not looking to start a family any time soon... so what gives? Give me some fucking space. Andrew and I are very happy in our relationship. When/if we decide to get married, we'll let you know. Until then, assume it's not happening any time soon and stop asking/advising me about it. Thanks.

I can has job!!!

So, the last two posts have been slightly... depressing.

But, I have some good news! I've had a few interviews to do paralegal/law related stuff and I have two follow-up interviews this Friday. Also, I interviewed at Kaplan to do test prep in the evenings and have a follow up interview coming up next week. Life is looking up.

Also, as much as my mother is driving me insane, my dad is being super supportive. When I totld him about one of my follow up interviews today he said "I can't wait until you have a job in the city. It's in the middle of everything and you're young and it's going to be good. And once you're working, you can move into the city and I can come visit you." I'm glad he gets it. It makes my mother being delusional a lot better.

Fingers crossed!!

Reasons I hate my life...,

So, I'm going to use this blog as an outlet. Expect a lot of venting.

In that vein, I'm creating a reoccurring post called "Reasons why I hate my life." Optimistic, I know. Anyway, each time I post one of these, I'll give a new reason. If this sounds depressing to you, too fucking bad. Stop reading my blog.

So... reason #1,

Every time I see there's a new message in my email inbox, I get really excited because I think it might be someone responding to one of the dozens of resumes I've sent out in the past couple of weeks. Every time, it's something else, usually something really pointless. Today it was coupons to Party City. What the fuck do I have to celebrate???

Screwing up or making a fresh start? You decide...

Mission: Grad School
Status: miserable

Attention passengers--this is your captain speaking. As you've probably noticed, we've been experiencing turbulence for some time now. In retrospect, the route we've chosen seems to have been a mistake. We need to lighten the load in order to reroute and preserve enough fuel to make it through the semester. Please throw all your hopes and dreams out the window. Hold onto your sanity for dear life and we may just make it out in one piece...
