Wow it has been wayyyyyy too long since my last update...

Well it's hard to believe that Bing is over and that everyone is off on their own tracks now but thankfully everyone has been good at keeping in touch...I've seen a few of the Bingers over the past few weeks and we've had a lot of fun...even my life parnter was able to make it up for one weekend and we had this-------------------------------------------------------------- much fun (clams casino bitches)...I always love hanging out at paddys and my house with the crew...

In other news I have a boyfriend now...his name is Adam and he is a really sweet, funny, down to earth guy...we've been dating about 2 months and I've met his family and friends, all of whom are very sweet...tomorrow I'm actually going to his family's house for Rosh Hashana dinner, I'm so excited! Anyways I'm very happy with him and it was totally worth a 3 year wait to find an amazing guy.

The family is also doing well, everyone has been good lately and it's nice to be home with them. I forgot how much I missed when I was away at school...even though I do miss living on my own it is nice to have my family around me during the day.

In terms of jobs and such I'm working at the dental office but I'm trying to find another job. I don't hate the office like I use to, in fact it's been really good there lately, but I just need to be making more money. I don't get so many hours and I need to make as much money as possible before I go back to school. I'm planning on finding another job (probably something part time at this rate) and applying for masters programs for fall 2007...I'm still debating between a masters in special ed and a masters in counseling so I've decided to apply to a few programs of each degree...I'm taking my GRE's on October 28th and applying so we'll see.

As far as Ireland goes, the job and the apartment didn't work out but that's ok...I'm going to go there in November to visit for like 2 weeks with my dad...it's for the better that I don't stay there for a prolonged period of time, there were just too many things to take into consideration...the job didn't work out, it was hard trying to find apartments and figure out the different areas, Dublin is a very expensive city and things started to settle here...my family and friends would miss me too much and vice versa, I met Adam, and I need to focus on my future. I love Ireland, it will always have a special place in my heart, but I've accepted that I can never live there permanently. I could never leave this behind and I've taken Ireland for what it was...it was a great experience that opened my eyes and helped me mature, an experience that changed my life...but it's not my life nor will it ever be. It helped me gain the perspective I needed and now I look back at it fondly instead of longing sadly for it. Today was the first time I looked at my Ireland pictures and didn't cry...I laughed and felt happy...I also felt thankful, thankful for such an experience and thankful for the appreciation it gave me towards everyone and everything at home and towards myself...I felt happy looking at those pics and happy that I've finally realized it's time to move on...that I will have new experiences, new things too look foward to, and new pics to put into my albums...I don't need to rely on the happiness I felt in the past, whether it be from Ireland or Bing, because its time to gain happiness from the great things I have now...Ireland is over but I will always think of it fondly.

Anyways I'm off to bed soon but I miss everyone and I hope everyone is doing well. I know it's a bit rough for everyone being away from each other and being in different places but I know we are all in each others hearts...and that's what matters most.
