So the past few days have been pretty good!

After realizing I will be pretty lonely, bored, and broke my first week in Atlanta, I went out on a limb and decided to do something about it. I emailed everyone in my training class and offered to host a potluck supper at my place (since I'm sure everyone else will be broke) so we can get to know each other. The response was overwhelming and so far everyone except one person is coming!!!! It should be a lot of fun!

I did some more packing and cleaning out last night and posted a TON of stuff up on Craigslist to sell. If I sell it all I will make like $500 bucks, so keep your fingers crossed!

This weekend I am going to Ocean City for April's Bachelorette Party! I'm so excited to spend a whole weekend with my girls at the beach!!!!!!!

More updates later, now it's time for packing!

Yesterday I graduated from college!

It's been such a lonnnng time coming, and it is still so surreal that it is all done and over with. I went to the big ceremony at the coliseum, then to lunch, then to the departmental ceremony. THEN I had a cookout and party at my place, it was such a great time!

Thank you everyone who came out yesterday, but thank you even more to EVERYONE who has supported me over the past five years. I've had a lot of ups and downs, but in the end I made it though, and now I am officially a VCU Alumn. 14 days til ATL!

I'm really moving to Atlanta? Really?

Ok so now that school is ending and I'm actually getting ready to move it's getting time to start updating this thing more regularly.

First off--we didn't get that other place. It's a long story but let's just say the guy was an asshole and it fell through.

But the GOOD thing is that we found an even better place. In the same area (Midtown), ACROSS from the marta line, 2 bed 2 bath on the 22nd (top!) floor!! We LOVE it and I'm so glad we found a great place.

I started packing tonight. Not just a couple of things, like REALLY packing. I have seven big boxes done. All of my shelves are empty, my walls are bare, and in its place are these gigantic, stark boxes.

I found my yearbooks from highschool while I was packing. I was looking through the notes that people wrote to me promising to stay in touch, how we were such good friends, etc. It makes me sad to think that I was at one point so close to these people, but now we rarely talk. I know that's life.....but it just made me start thinking about what the next year will bring. How many of the people that I am so close to now will I still be close to? Who will keep their promises?

So here I am, sitting in Emily's room because she is out of town, Sam has people over partying, Lynn is out with her friends, and I feel so lonely. To the point it aches deep inside. I don't know if I have enough gas to get to Brian's house or not but I'm going to try, because the next time I feel this lonely he will be three states away.

So this is how I am going to feel every day for the next three years...awesome. I hope this job is worth it.
