A lot of good has been going on. And I love it. For the past year or so my life has felt like such a mess. I was so stressed out and overwhelmed and just not loving life. It's like everything that could have gone wrong in the past year did. It seemed every time something started to go right I was hit with something even worse. It was terrible. So I really didn't have any high expectations once I graduated because I would just be happy if nothing went majorly wrong.
Well I couldn't have asked for life to be going better. I am so so amazed at how things suddenly fell into place. I am so happy about all that has happened the past month, I really can't believe it. In July my mom told us that she was going to start charging me rent in September (Jamal already had been paying rent). She was going to up Jamal's as well. I was so frustrated and upset because I wasn't expecting it and I truly think the amount she wanted is pretty ridiculous. So while we had been looking for an apartment the hunt was really on when we found that out. We needed to be out by the end of August.
If you remember from this post, a few weeks later Cody and Chelsey offered for us to house/dog sit for them for the month of September. It was exactly what we needed. An extra month to save some money and find our perfect first home. So we moved in the first week of September. A couple of weeks later I found the perfect job for me. I am now working at a credit union as a teller. While it is only part time (for now) and I had originally hoped to move up a little versus being a teller again I am really excited about this job. There are some great opportunities for growth and I hope to stay with the company for a while.
This is one of the pups we are watching, He does like me, he is just always very crabby.
About a week after I accepted my new job we found our new home. We have two different sets of friends that live in the same complex so we went to check it out. I was hesitant at first because it isn't in the best city but our friends really like it there and said it's super quite so I was convinced and we signed a lease. We move in next Wednesday!!!!
As if finding a place near our friends in a good area wasn't enough, the complex also had a special going on when we signed the lease. We signed a 13 month lease and then got the first month free! Another month to save up some more money. I seriously can't believe how perfectly everything has worked out for us. Just when it felt like my life was a complete disaster it does a 180 on me and things are going great.
I am so thankful for all that we have been given the past couple of months. Jesus has had my back :) I have been shopping like crazy trying to make sure that we have the coziest and happiest little apartment to go home to every night. I can't wait to see everything together. We still have quite a few things before it is complete but we have a great start. I am so excited to share it with you soon.
