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.
