I suppose I should share my big news. Jess and I are planning to move in together. We have set a date of November 1st so hopefully this work out. We will be moving up to the Lehigh Valley area as this is where Jess's job is and I can get a job in either healthcare or customer service at least for the next little while. I shall have my degree in December and I shall start looking probably within the next month or so for library positions in this area.

This also means I must learn how to drive. There is public transit around here but it's limited and it gives me much more independence to drive. I'm kind of terrified of this but I do realize its necessity and so I suppose I shall. Plus, maybe this time (hopefully this time) it won't be such a scary experience.

Meanwhile, in the next few months, I shall look for temp positions in the Philadelphia area. I want to have some money before we move. Jess will be living with me in September as she does training for her job in the Philly area and after that the serious apartment hunting begins (possibly looking at apartments online when she is here. That has yet to be worked out.)

So,yeah, my life is changing. I'm both excited and scared although more excited. I tend to get a bit nervous about big life changes although I have an excellent gut instinct this is all for the good.

Life has been really, really good lately. Today I interviewed for three positions and I believe they all went well. At the last one the guy interviewing me said "If your references check out ok, I anticipate offering you the job and you starting on Monday." That did so, so much for my confidence and it felt really good. It would be a 35 hour a week position with decent pay. No health insurance but I can deal with that, I think, if I pay for it on my own. Which.. pricey but I can deal.

My relationship with Jess continues to get better and better. We just fit so incredibly well together. I swear we have the same brain sometimes which is both awesome and a bit scary sometimes. We have a lot of the same values, the same ideas, and the same level of commitment and adoration towards each other. It is so, so, so amazingly wonderful and good.

Also, I started classes this week and it looks like this class (Introduction to Research) will be a lot of work but nothing I can't handle. It will also teach me about research and grant writings and proposals-all of which are very, very useful skills in the library world.
