Almost, anyway. I have one more test to get done, and then I will be moving on to the next chapter of my life. I will have a two-year degree under my belt and will be well on my way to achieving the four-year degree at the University of Washington. To be honest, I am little sad. Shoreline Community College is a good school and most of my experiences with my fellow students and the professors has been good. It is hard to believe that a year and a half has gone by so fast. But I am moving forward.
Otherwise, things are moving along as they always do. The sun has finally come out for a little while in the Seattle area. That does not mean it has been really hot, though. We have still had a very cool year. I had a friend comment the other day that he was wearing a jacket and could see his breath on the morning of July 31st. That is a problem.
I had a guy ask me out not too long ago. After some careful consideration, I have decided to take him up on the offer. The reason why I have been cautious is because I am not interested in having my heart broken again. It happened once, just over a month before the wedding, and I still wonder how I managed to cope during that time. So, I will be going slow, and I hope the guy understands. This is not his first relationship by any means, either, so I am sure we have a few things in common in this area, though the circumstances leading up to our broken hearts are different. One step at a time, right? Perhaps I am overthinking this, but it is hard not to think about that past relationship as I decide whether or not I am ready to start another.
More to come.
