So, about the job. I am finally using my degree, which I could not be happier about. In fact, I'm not only using my degree, but I'm actually using it for it's intended purpose. The job itself is exactly what I wanted to do. So I am happy.
And about the move: I moved back to Pennsylvania into this teeny tiny town that doesn't even have a damn Starbucks. Like, I need a Chai Tea Latte STAT! And the closest Walmart is a half hour away, which is probably why I've needed to go for two weeks and still haven't. To be honest, I hated this place at first, but fortunately I am getting used to it. I am only 2 hours away from my parents, which is awesome, and I am truly enjoying my job.

For the last few weeks I have been staying with my aunt and uncle who live in the same town, but this Saturday I am moving into my new apartment. I found a cute little upstairs apartment for a very decent price. It's small, but that's fine for little ol' me. It includes cable tv, which I was not planning on getting, so I am super pumped about that. And the best part? They're gonna let me have a cat. Guess who's going kitten shopping?!
Of course, it's not all rainbows and sunshine. It was a very difficult decision for me, but after lots of thinking and lots of tears, I am pretty sure I made the right one. Sam and I are doing the long distance thing once again, which has been so far so good. I don't love it, but I don't hate it either. Also, after I made the decision to move I started having problems with my house, my land lord, and my one roommate, so I was a little glad to have a reason to get out. Honestly, everything seems to be falling into place, and so I'm trying to keep my chin up. The only thing I haven't come to terms with yet is the snow. I had to brush my car off the last two mornings. No thank you!
