Today marks my two year anniversary with Keith. I’m sitting here wondering how it could be possible that it’s been two years since we found each other. It’s hard to remember times without him, and impossible to think of a future without him. I think of things that I still want to do in my life (and there’s a lot) and Keith is there in all my imaginings. He’s a solid fixture in my life and I like knowing that. Two years like a long time to some, but when I think about being with him it all seems to blur together. And in the best way possible.

Once again, I’ve put off blogging for as long as possible, and now I have a ton of things to write about all at once. I have three distinct ideas in mind, each of which will get their own post. Keep up if you can, I’ll try to keep it interesting. But I’ll start with the one that’s most important to me, and that’s Keith. We’ve been together for over a year and a half now, and a little over a month ago we decided to take a big step forward, and so we moved in together.
Well the weekend has come and gone, but I’m sad to see it go. I spent the weekend constantly on the go, but in the best possible way. I spent it with family and friends having a great time. Sunday was my 6 month-iversary with Keith, and Monday was my birthday. Saturday was spent with different friends just relaxing and having fun, but Sunday was reserved for Keith and I to be together on the special day, and he even took off work Monday so he could be with me on my birthday in a way that nobody else ever really has. It was wonderful in every way it could have been.
Things have been crazy the past couple months. When I started this blog, I told myself I’d be updating all the time, but as you can see by the date of my last entry, this hasn’t worked out too well as of late. Allow me to explain. I was laid off from my job of almost 3 years at the end of December, I’m under pressure at school to maintain an A average in a class where a C is something to be prayed for, my car has required almost $1000 in repairs, and I’ve done it all without the friend I thought I’d always have at my side. The only bright spot in all this has been Keith. It’s nice to know that even when we both have horrible days, we’re always there for each other at the end of it all to sit with and talk and just enjoy the company. I don’t know how I got by without him in the past.
So much has changed in my life in the past few months. I learned that my job is being discontinued at the end of the year and that I’ll soon be unemployed. I learned that a very close friend that I trusted implicitly was no longer worthy of that trust and have all but ended the friendship as a result. And I met someone. Someone wonderful. Someone who makes me feel special and important and like I have something to look forward to when I wake up each day. It makes me feel silly and serious all at the same time. And I’ve loved every minute of it.
