Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved. ~William Shakespeare

It's finally set in that I am no longer an undergrad. Today I recieved the billing schedule for my student loans. I feel like a kid testing the tepid waters of adulthood.

I am dorming at the new house with really old college kids. I don't have many runins with my mom here, since I actually have a room. Also we aren't really around each other for an extended period of time. I work, she works etc etc. I just want my own place with Shane. I have to wait for Shane though. And living here saves money, so there isn't much to complain about.

I don't know what to do when I have time to myself. I don't have to go into work today until 3:15. Last night I made up all these grand plans to do stuff today, like get an oil change or move stuff into the new house. However, I just can't bring myself to do stuff. I got up at 8:30 with all this ambition and now it's gone. Blah.

Kaitlyn and I are still gyming it up.

Shane is not coming this weekend, because mom nixed those plans. BUT hopefully next weekend I get to see my wonderful man. It will also be my last weekend in the house, then it's the new house all the way.

Life at the new branch is going well. My start at Holden gave me good experience for the new branch, because the new branch is wicked busy. I don't sit down all day. I am guessing that I will move up very quickly there.

Shane is coming next weekend. And I am so excited. It's always wonderful to spend a weekend with him.

Tonight, I might venture out with the crew to the Shrewsbury Wine and Beer Festival.

Ugh, women! I think some of us females just thrive on drama. I am being transfered to another branch because of a comment that I didn't make to another teller (V). She (V) picked a fight with another teller (E) and told (E) that I said that (E) doesn't like (V). Why the hell would I say someone doesn't like another person? I am not stupid and malicious. I go to work, I help customers, I make small talk. (V) also claimed that I was trying to get her in trouble, by asking what time she needed to prove her draw. My boss now thinks I am a trouble-making gossip. Those comments hurt my feelings, because I have no ill will towards V or E. Nor do I cause trouble. Maybe I am a drama magnet? Why can't people just do their jobs and not cause petty crap? Sometimes I long to work for a male employer. I don't care if I sound sexist. Most men don't want drama. I don't want it either.

A part of me is happy that I am being transfered. I will be closer to the new house and hopefully I won't have to deal with, to quote Flava Flav, "dramatical" females. Sartre was wrong, hell is other women.*

Despite the aforementioned drama, I continue to have a sunny disposition. . The new house is beautiful. The friends are well. Shane and I are great. Life is fine. I wish I could say the same about the economy...ah well..can't win them all.

After a summer of hardly being near the computer, Lauren has finally left for school. Hopefully, this means more entries.

Jen and I have been trying to include new events into our usual routines. New restaurants, movies, going to Boston, new people etc. We have doing this without the knowledge of Kay and Kaitlyn, but yesterday they asked if we wanted to hang out and we asked them of they wanted to try a new restaurant other than a chain. Their response to our request was suggesting Applebees. And we ended the night at Barnes & Noble. Wild Nights This change thing is going to be harder than I thought.

The past week has been pleasant. I am sure most of you are tired of my happy posts, well too bad for you. The weather has been amazing and life continues to be great. Being happy really takes all the creativity out of me. The comedian, Patton Oswald said comedians aren't funny when they are happy. I relate to his sentiments at the moment.

Last weekend, I saw my new home. My family has moved. The house is huge. Shane said I am trading one mansion for another. I get a bed and my own room. It's so nice to actually sleep on a bed, considering I have been sleeping on a couch for the past two years. On Monday, Jen and I bummed around Boston. We mostly walked around the city, but it was fun to people watch and ride the T.

*After a difficult period in my life about two and a half years ago, I vowed to get revenge. Not by hurting or destroying anyone; rather, revenge by living well. I picked up the pieces of my life. I was not going to be defeated by pain or show that I was hurt too much, when my name and image started to be dragged through the metaphorical mud and is still being dragged to this day. Trust me, it hurt. However, I moved on. I am stronger while the past is weaker. My future is bright and it feels good. I suggest that others do the same. Don't blame people for your own shortcomings.

The past few weeks have been quite nice. I spent a weekend at the Cape with my friends. I have been shopping a lot (like I need more clothes). And I am still employed at the bank. I really enjoy the job. I take solace in the fact that I am doing better than most of my peers at the moment. I am very fortunate that I have a great job with benefits, friends, and a wonderful man. :-)

Man, no one tells you how draining working full-time is. I am not performing the most physical tasks at the bank but it must be taking a toll. I enjoy the job though. As of late, there has been a rash of check fraud going around and it's been cool actually catching people in the act.

I saw Shane last weekend. I already miss him. It's nice having your boyfriend around, just to go places together and enjoy each other's company. We had a discussion about us moving in together, but it was decided that it would be a while. He is going to turn 21 soon and I won't be there for his birthday. And that fact bothers me. His friends have a party planned for him and it's probably best that I am not there, so they can have fun with him. However, I feel like I miss out on important times in his life. I feel less of a factor in his life at these times. I am not asking to be attached at the hip, but being apart of his 21st birthday would be nice. I wouldn't turn down the opportunity to get drunk with him and his friends.

Shane got Lauren a Wii at a discounted price. I don't think I have seen her happier. And I am having fun with it too.

And that's all folks...
