Transitioning out of Transition-Part Deux!
Goal 1: Making something happen with "The Teacher"--I think he is the one and I need to be patient to see that through
Unless this is the first post you have read here, you already know that this goal went horribly aray after I wrote it down. Is that a good thing? Prolly so. I am instead in a relationship with a man I am horribly in love with...horribly. The man makes this control freak give up control--and not in a bad way. He is the sweetest, most caring and thoughtful man I have ever met--for that matter ever dated. Oh and if you wondering about the sex...good lawd he puts it down in that department so well that I...
Okay, is it hot in here or is it just me???
Oh, yeah and he's handsome, well-spoken and gainfully employed too.
Goal 2:Graduating with Honors and deferring law school.
Accomplished. I graduated with a 3.7 GPA (probably a 3.65 cause I went ahead and sacrificed one class for the sake of sanity) and as far as law school is concerned, I just might go ahead and apply and then defer.
Goal 3:significantly reducing the amount of cursing I do--NYC brings the worse out of me.
Uh, thats not really working out. I'm saying if the world--and NYC in particular, wasn't so full of fools...Hey, look its better than me hauling off and hitting muuufuuca's.
Goal 4:Continuing and completing my goal to be fitter, finer, and foxier before Trinidad in March--18 lbs to go and perhaps I will comfortably rock a bathing suit
Ok, this goal is a little convoluted. Back when I posted, I had lost 8 lbs. I have made a net loss in weight since then of a whole 2 lbs. But after my first vacation in years with a bunch of nudists--I can say I more comfortable in my bathing AND birthday suit.
Goal 5:Getting a job in Cleveland. Cleveland is where my passion lies and I have to get past the glitter and popularity of my last two residences in DC and NYC.
The statement imbedded in this goal is still true. Cleveland has potential. But I'm still having a hard time getting past the reputation of the place and no it has nothing to do with the new man. That fool said he'd move. But I do have an interview for a once in a life time gig there, so I'll keep you posted.
Goal 6: Living by myself with my own stuff and not having to deal with collecting rent from others
Working on it. But I have a shitty paying job--so that is a dreamed deferred. Until then I will keep mowing the lawn, triming the hedges and taking out the trash--all shit my lazy ass male roommates won't do unless I holler like I'm somebody's mama.
Goal 7 : Getting my finances back on track so that WHEN I am back in Cleveland--I can buy a house in 08
This one is going as planned...I'm cooking with an electric stove rather than gas---but I have paid off three credit cards, a couple collections, and have significantly lowered my debt load.
I'm feeling alright about where I am. Yes, I have my control freak freakout moments--particularly about career and money, but if I have not learned anything after 6 years of difficult transitions including unemployment, big breakups, and about with depression...the Man upstairs has a plan and all you can do is keep walking...it all works out the way its supposed to. Can't wait to see what happens next. Popcorn anyone?
