Congrats on the engagement and getting your A.A. In Psych! I hope things continue to go smoothly in your future. You don't have to tell me about anything too personal if you don't want to. But if you do and want to get a weight off your chest or back or whatever, you can PM me.

I've been working a lot of hours, I'm not going to complain since I'm only part-time. There aren't any full time security positions open at the moment but I may get one eventually after the HR asked if I would be interested in it. So who knows. As for the depression part, I think it's a 50/50 between work and personal life. With work, my hours can be all over the place. I could work till midnight but have to return to work 8 hours later for another 6 or 10 hour shift. I would love to be full time so I would have a more set schedule and also would be able to see my husaband more. Now as for the personal part, I just keep thinking of things. I think I really made my husband sad when I asked him a "what if?" Question a couple weeks ago. His reaction and attitude still sits on my conscious and we barely talk about it since it's kind of a timely thing. Basically after our honeymoon in Europe, which was amazing, I had a feeling that there wouldn't be a way for me to move or live there. Which that is my husbands goal, to move back to Germany (more specifically). I alskrd him, what if I don't want to move to Europe? He sighed, paused a bit and said, well, we'll see what we can do. I'm glad he's willing to figure this out but I'm still worried. I feel like I just killed his dreams and I would hate to be the person to do that. I loved France and Germany but I just don't belong there at this time. Maybe if my parents were dead I could move but he's planning to apply to teach overseas witching the next two or three years. So, I've been really bummed about all that and trying to not overthink it but of course, I do.

Sorry for the late reply.
To be honest, ever since I came back from my honeymoon I've been doing nothing but work. I'm not going to complain but there are times when I'm called in on a day off but I suppose it's my fault to agree in coming in. So other than work I have been battling the ups and downs of depression as well. So it's been rough trying to overcome that.

How have you been?

I know, it's me again. I just found out this morning that my clearance came through and I start this upcoming Tuesday (on October 11th).

I hope we do too. My birthday is in November and I'm trying to convince him not to get me a birthday gift so he can save his money for rent and the utility he's in charge of (with his roommates, everyone is in charge of a utility). It's a good thing his dad officially transferred his (my boyfriend's dad) car to my boyfriend's name. My boyfriend didn't want to buy a car since he wanted to have some money saved in case this happened (and it did). One of my friends was let go as well. 3 layoffs in the course of about 7 months. I know this company is going under, or at least this office and I would be lying if I said I wouldn't rejoice if that happened. I feel bad that my boyfriend lost his job because he was good at his job and he finally found something he really wanted to do. Most of his previous jobs had nothing to do with programming.

I just feel like my boyfriend will have difficulties finding something in the field he wants (which is a developer, which was what his previous job was) because he doesn't have a Bachelor's Degree (he has two associates degrees) and I noticed that in the tech world, no Bachelors, no job. He wants to get one eventually, but financial issues and a negative mental state caused him to drop out the last time he tried. He said he wants to do it online through a reputable college (so not the online colleges that are advertised on TV).

So something positive! A month or two before I started my security clearance investigation, my cousin started hers for a job. She just got her clearance last week, so I feel like I'll get mine either before my birthday or before my boyfriend and I's first anniversary. At least I actually know what I want for my birthday this year (a book called "I Can't Think Straight" which was adapted into a movie. It's an LGBT book I discovered while searching through the large LGBT collection on Powell Books. Yes, They include the B and the T in their book selections which made me very happy to see the B actually represented in LGBT).

Happy belated birthday!

My boyfriend got laid off from his job yesterday sad

So be careful about selling stuff in the marketplace, receiving gifts on Gaia, and dumpster diving. Recently, someone has decided to buy kins with botted gold. The user would then gift the kins to random people. When that user's trading pass was disabled, she dumped them in dumpster dive. People who had an item bought from her, got her item in dumpster dive, or was gifted the item gets their trading pass disabled until the investigation is finished. There was a thread about it, but I don't see it anymore. Everyone who knows about it is being told to empty their marketplace listings, don't go into Dumpster Dive, and change the gifting settings to "Friend's Only (No Anonymous)". The user has been banned before, but plans to return. I don't know if this will blow over the next time you see this, but I'm warning you so you and Gwyn don't get your trading passes disabled by this.

Sorry it took me forever to respond! So I have a family member who recently retired from government work and I have apparently been lied to in regards of how long clearances take.

Another cousin just got her security clearance for a job. She applied for a clearance a month or two before I did, so I'm just hoping that I'll get an offer around my birthday (in November). It's putting all my plans on hold. Awhile ago, I mentioned taking kickboxing with the plan to start classes a month or two after getting a job. It's about time now to pack my short-sleeved clothes and I'm thinking if I have to wait until spring to start kickboxing (since I don't want to drive at night if there is ice on the roads. Yes, classes are at night).

Now I suddenly want cake.

I'm still waiting, and it worries me that something happened to cause a delay.

I hope classes go well! What major (or majors) are you studying, if you have declared your major yet?

I know you told me to keep you updated with the security clearance stuff. I'm still waiting, but I think I'll hear back from you soon. To forewarn you, once I get this clearance, I won't be able to tell you what I did at work. I can talk about general software developer stuff, though.

I know anything that's breaded has gluten in it (according to my cousin). When she eats pizza, she only eats the cheese and gives the rest to her son. I only know if a snack is gluten-free if it explicitly says it's gluten-free. She also had diverticulitis which meant there were even more foods she couldn't eat. She had surgery to remove the affected colon last year (I guess her diverticulitis flare-ups either increased or some other reason), so she isn't as restricted now.

You never realize what foods have to be restricted until either you or someone you know have a food intolerance or allergy.
