I don't really find myself perusing the forums/profiles of Internet friends as often as I should, but I'm feeling down and not much like working, so I figured this was as good a distraction as any.
To begin, I finally graduated (again) and got my degree and began working full time for a company here in Grand Rapids as an Associate Software Developer. So that's great news! I started full time a couple of weeks ago after working there during my final semester, getting acclimated to the team, the project, etc. I'm excited to see where this job can take me moving forward.
On a not-so-happy note, I found myself recently single. That was/still is a pretty hard pill to swallow. We had been dating for over 3 years and had gotten an apartment together, which we still have our lease for through July. This is still very fresh and it's still affecting my health and well-being, so I really need to get this figured out soon. I'm hoping making this post here will help alleviate some of those feelings.
Lastly, I've applied to be a Guardian once more and with my new job as a salaried employee, I can take the time off that I need and still take home a check! But on a serious note, I was super bummed I couldn't make it to RTX last year for my 3rd Guardianship, but I'm really excited to be able to (hopefully) contribute again this summer. I'm sure come August, I could use a real vacation, so I'm definitely looking forward to that. Only 6+ months to go!
Sorry for bringing this minorly depressing post into the world, I just needed to get it off my chest. Hopefully everyone has a great day/night, wherever you may be.
