Well, 2016 is certainly off to an interesting start. Just a few weeks into the new year and there have already been a few significant changes, I'm not sure where to begin. Typically I'd get all of the stressful stuff out of my system before mentioning the positive things but I'm pretty sure if I did that for this post Doodle Buddy and my therapist would both be like, "Seriously? You should have started with that". DB already knows of course, but you get the point. Okay enough stalling. On the 2nd, thanks to Hannah constantly harassing me about it, I (against my better judgement) broke down and downloaded Tinder. Within 5 days I somehow managed to find myself caught between two sweet airmen named Chris. I'd just like to point out stuff like this never ever happens to me. Like it's a "hey lets go ice skating because Hell has frozen over" situation. Also, I always told myself I'd never date/marry someone in the military because I didn't think I'd do so well with moving so frequently. Long story short it turns out I actually had met one of them before. My friend Aaron had 3 roommates on base last year and Chris was one of them. We all got together to see a movie before one of them transferred to a new base. Roommate Chris and I hit it off really well after matching on Tinder and grabbed dinner on the 8th. And I've seen him just about every day since :). He's incredibly intelligent, super sweet, and ridiculously adorable. And, at the risk of sounding cliché, it feels perfectly easy and normal to be with him. I don't know how to really explain it but it's like there's a comfort level there that neither of us has had in the past. We can go from having a serious conversation to laughing about something stupid while watching Netflix at his apartment seamlessly. Our personalities are so similar, both introverts and same type of humor, and we're both having to deal with some ridiculous high stress situations. Honestly I think we both enjoy laying around the apartment talking more than we like going out. We were talking last night about how weird it seems when we remember we've only being dating for like two weeks, anytime he talks about future trips he makes a point to say "we". I usually say something to the effect of, "We'll see, who knows where we'll be a year from now". To which he responds, "You say that like you think one of us may be going somewhere. Im already attached, so you're stuck with me". My mom loves him, my dad seems to like him, and he gets along with Penny. And? We both seem to be falling fast. Really really fast. Swoon.
School started back this week and soon I'll start my new job at an indoor trampoline park, so things are about to get crazy busy. I had to cancel my appointments with my hematologist and the consult with the gastroenterologist thanks to insurance screwing me over (again) so I STILL have zero answers regarding my scary health issues. The bruising is starting to become darker and more frequent again, but at least I haven't had a blackout spell in a while. Silver lining, y'all, silver lining.
I can't think of anything else to say, later all.
