Fall Back | Spring Forward

A post of woe and whining.

- So, we moved! Not very far, only about a 45 minute drive, but still. Moving sucks. Ugh. At least it's because Jaime found a job, so now we're both safely away from the horror that is academia. I kind of hate the town we moved to, but that's just because it's not Chicago big and/or interesting. It's really no worse than where we were before. I... yeah. Yeah, that's about it.

- I guess I'm getting married? Jaime and I have been together for over eight years, so it's not like anything's really changing, but... I dunno. We're getting married so I can get health insurance. It kinda sucks. I figured when I did get married it'd be... something. And I was always planning to take his name, but now that it's actually happening, I'm torn. I don't want to go through all the hassle of changing all my official stuff when nothing else is changing. No ceremony, no engagement, no real proposal even. Reality sucks, is the point here, I suppose. I know everyone says this, but I'm planning on only getting married once, and for it to happen with such little fanfare and in relative isolation and for such a mundane, practical reason... damnit. Just. Just damnit.

- I'm hormonal and I forgot to take my meds last night so my brain is a mushed up mess of profanity and nerves and I can't stop crying. Aasdlkfjpaoweijfasdlkfj-

:cries with you:

That does suck, bb. It doesn't matter what the circumstances or that it's practical; you love the guy and you planned to spend your life with him, sure, but you still deserve the big party and for it to feel like something big. Because it is. And I'm sorry you ended up moving somewhere less than awesome. I know what that's like, and it doesn't help make you happy, that's for sure.

Thanks. *hugs* I'm thinking I'm going to keep my last name for now - if we're getting married for practicality, then I'm going to keep things practical. When I change my name... that's when we'll celebrate. And yeah, location's not exactly great, but at least there's hope we'll move somewhere awesome after this. *sigh* Not exactly ideal, but I'll survive, of course.
