The Culmination

i can’t believe it. it is still setting in that i got my first official, no shit, salary-earning job offer of my life yesterday. everything i’ve worked for, everything i’ve done in college until now, every resume i made since my dad forced me to make one when i was 14, every lecture, all of it–this is what it was for. and it feels incredible.

i have never had such a fulfilling, rewarding, and exhilarating feeling in my life. :tongue: i have never truly been proud of myself until now. i feel like i have accomplished something and all the hard work and bitching and moaning since high school has paid off. it’s unbelievable.

i don’t really know what to do with myself right now.

i just got off the phone with adam and it was one of the nicest, sweetest, most fun phone conversations we’ve ever had. with him being gone so long to arkansas, it’s starting to feel like deployment again where we get the butterflies and can’t wait to see each other again. plus, he has passed all his qualifications in phase 1 of sniper school so far (only 2 more left in phase 1) and is pumped about that, i’m all excited about job opportunities, and our 3-year anniversary is in 15 days. we’re pretty much both ridiculously happy for the other’s successes and i think we’re reaching a new point in our relationship. i’m loving this. :kiss:
