An Update of Sorts.

Wow, been a while since I've updated. Sorry about that.

Well, finals week came and went, and I graduated from the University of Montana on Saturday, May 10th. I've changed the name of my blog to reflect that :)

On May 11th, both my boyfriend and his brother (our roommate) left. Boyfriend headed to Texas, roomie headed for Arkansas. There was a bit of turmoil around that time, and quite frankly, I don't want to get into it. Basically my boyfriend attempted to break up with me, and then we got back together the next day and are working on our relationship.

Job hunting for me is going pretty slow. I can't apply for many of the jobs I want until the school changes my transcript to reflect the fact that I've graduated. I just checked, and they still haven't done it. I did apply for one job at the Medical Examiner's office in Houston, I'm hoping to hear back from them soon. Really hope I do. I miss my boyfriend terribly. It's very odd to be in the apartment alone with my cat. I've gotten a lot accomplished in the two weeks that he's been gone, and I think right now if I got a job in Houston, I could be completely packed and ready to move in 4 days. Working on getting that down to three days, but we'll see. My goal has been to throw away 10 things per day, and I've been meeting and exceeding that goal on a daily basis.

There's been some rather emotional self-discoveries made this past two weeks, but what doesn't kill us makes us stronger, right?

Anyhow, I'm doing alright. It's nice to know I can always fall back on myself in hard times.

We'll see what the future brings. I'm hopeful for it.
