Life is crazy, but at least it's moving! Finally. - Antarctic Blue
Life is crazy, but at least it's moving! Finally.
A couple of life-changingish events happened recently, so I'd better document it here for posterity (and let people know what's going on!).

1. I got a job after a year of unemployment. It doesn't pay very well (10/hour), and it's part time, but I like it. I'm converting/editing textbooks into word documents so students can use their computers to read them. I've had it for about a month now, and I'm slowly working my way out of completely broke and into mostly poor. Taking that job at McDonald's for one day might have spurred it on...

2. Yesterday, Dre asked me to marry him. I said yes.

Edit: Oh, and here's a picture of the ring, just uploaded: http://bacon.sandwich.net/engagement/ardring.JPG

I'm really happy to hear both of those bits of news. Congratulations!

Congratulations! A job's a job, and that one sounds not as bad as some you could have ended up with.

And getting married's a nice plus, too. We should talk soon, eh? ^_~

Hi! I feel the need to comment here so that the announcement doesn't seem so one-sided. Also, I wanted to thank everyone for all their sweet congratulations messages. So thanks all! ^^;

Squee~! OMG Congrats I'm so excited for both of you. *I smell something burning-uh oh it must be all those wedding ideas i have in my head. @_@

First we must decide on Color(s). . .
ardweden From: ardweden Date: October 3rd, 2009 12:56 am (UTC) (Link)

Re: ^_^

Purple! Our favorite color is purple, for both of us. So at least that one is easy!

Re: ^_^

I approve of this wedding color scheme.

Wow, congrats! I wondered when this happened. Man, I go on vacation for a week and miss a bunch of interesting things.

Re-reading harry potter I see. . .I thought you read all those books already. . . or was that just part of your staged "look at my gorgeous ring" pose. ^_^

Its truely lovely I had to show my coworkers-even they were excited for you even though they have never met you.

Re: ^_^

Not rereading or showing off, really; I'm reading through the series for the first time for a class I'm sitting in on. :) Dre happened to take pictures while I was reading.

I'm glad you like it! Also, I need you to call me sometime soon. I'm going to be up at the parents' on the weekend of the 24th-25th, and I was thinking we could get together and such. Plans must be had! (I left a message on your answering machine, but I take it you haven't checked it yet?)
