So, it wasn't my original intent for my last post to be so long and negative. I originally intended to end on a happy note but after I started typing, I just kept going and then didn't have time to do any more. So, here's part 2 of the Life, and all that it entails... post.
Life can certainly be cruel, frustrating, annoying, sad and sometimes just downright shitty, but it can also bring great happiness and joy. I'm glad to say that I'm in that upswing of happiness right now and am certainly hoping that it will continue for a long, long time to come. I have a very good friend, Julie, whom I've known for a number of years (going on seven now) and who has always been one of my favorite people and in recent months our relationship has turned into a romantic one. I spent the New Year holiday with her and her family, whom I love being around, and had a wonderful time (and ate lots of great food). So, needless to say, I am quite happy. In fact, the happiest I've been in quite a few years. It's nice having someone to look forward to seeing every day and know that no matter crappy my day at work might have been for the rest of the evening and night things will be wonderful.
So, yeah, I am quite happy with life right now.
Now I just need to get a new, higher paying job...
