The Rantings of an Indentured Servant

Sort of Self Explanatory, Don't Ya Think? If it's not obvious, stop. Pan up. Re-read. There you go genius...

New bed set and things...

Well, my new bedset got delivered today. Yay!

I'm trying to put my room back together into some semblance of order. I do love the set though.

As for other things in life...

It's a little bit complicated (but then life is never really simple.) Well, Ktreva would be happy to know that shortly after new year's the sailor and I split (mostly his choice to break, but I understood the reasons and so it was on relatively good terms... much better than my last break as most of you know.)

I am currently with a wonderful person who is a gentleman and a scholar and I shall refer to as "The Marine" (mainly because he is exactly that, although he will be out next January.) I am very happy with him. Actually, I believe this is it. I've never been quite so sure of anything before. I would not be surprised if in the future I became Mrs. Marine to be honest. I know this is probably a statement that is going to get me called an idiot many times... I even realize how stupid I sound saying it.

But nevertheless, there it is. Life is falling into place piece by piece and I've finally found the piece to fit this part of my life. It's such a good feeling.

I am truly content with things.

Grown up things....

Well, I went out today on a mission: to buy a bookshelf.

I own quite the number of novels, reference works, picture books, etc... Part of being an English major I guess (and English teacher!). I was also going to check out some beds and such. I've been sleeping on a futon since I got home. Now, I got a new futon mattress that helped increase the comfort level, but a futon is a futon.

I returned home the proud owner of a brand new (on sale) bedroom set. Complete with a classic Queen-sized Cherry Sleigh Bed, Dressor and Mirror, and 5 drawer chest. Don't forget the amazing real pillow top mattress and boxspring.

It felt almost like when I bought my car. lol. I was thinking to myself, wow... this is such a grown up purchase. I'm spending a lot of money. I know it's an investment. I can take this set with me to my future home. It came with things like warranties. That's good.

Yet, at the same time I was thinking to myself: wow... this is such a grown up purchase. Am I ready to really be a grown up? I'm doing okay at it so far, right? I have a career, I make my car payments, I pay my bills, I take care of my own needs... I actually even take care of other people's needs. That's rather grown up. Am I doing this alright? It's not like you can make the dean's list at being grown up really... no report cards that come in the mail telling you how you are doing at life.

I just hope I'm not going to blow it. I want to do this life right. It's the only one I've got.
