So, it has been a long time since I posted here. I stop in every so often to see if there are new posts. But today, after reading Bunk's journal entry, it made me realize that maybe I should give a brief recap of what I have been up to for the last 7 (wow, it has been a long time) years.
As of my last post, I was living in Longview with my girlfriend, Dani. I had started working at a hotel a few months before as a desk clerk, and I was a very vocal supporter of the Republican party.
Over the last seven years, most of those things have actually remained the same. I still live in Longview, work at the same hotel (far more hours and worse pay now than then, but at least it's a job), and Dani and I are still together. I no longer consider myself a Republican after the mess it has turned itself into the last several elections.
Dani and I are actually getting married in just a couple months. Just picked up our bands on Monday. She is amazing and I am lucky every day to have her in my life. Things have been interesting throughout it all. And living with her family has definitely been stressful at times. But we persevered, and found our happiness in each other.
My job is a way to pay the bills, even if the hours are long (~100 hrs/week, 3 days off per month), and the pay is not great for the time put in ($2050/month Net). But, my bosses are good people and are usually willing to work with me when i have issues come up. I am likely at this job until/if we leave Longview.
Since the decline of Netalive as a place to come and socialize with people I was comfortable around, I have found my way to Dungeons and Dragons Online (http://www.ddo.com). Having never played an MMO before, I really enjoy it. I have made some great friends over my time there and ones I hope to keep when the time comes for me to move on from it.
Outside of work, I really have no time for an actual social life, so I don't have much to report on that front. I hope all is well with any of you who read this, and maybe we can catch up some time.
if any of you are on FB and interested, Brandon Excell. Shoot me a friend request or a message.
