Some Plans & Whatnot8:51 AM
Yay, more engagement photos! There are so many awesome ones you guys, I am having a hard time trying to pick a few to print and frame. Oh and Michelle and Chris included a few of Louie and of our kitchen (while they were waiting for our slow asses to hurry up) so yeah, Louie bonus!
I have been asked several times what our plans are after the wedding, and for once it is nice to be able to think about it. Since about 2009, I have been working full-time, and have been going to school full-time. I graduated at the end of 2011 with my bachelors in English, and have been doing nothing but wedding planning and catching up with friends and family since then. Now that the wedding is a mere two months away, I am starting to really piece together a few plans.
As far as work goes, I would like to do something different, if not find a job that pertains to my degree/interests a little more. I did apply for an assistant position in the AP department a month ago, and my work is very slow at filling positions… however, about ten other people applied for the same position so I am not holding my breath. I would honestly love to get a job at Oakland University where I graduated from, maybe just a clerical position like I have now. Basically, I am going to be keeping an eye out.
I also want to write. I have been keeping a notebook with me to write down all of my ideas and I have so many! I want to be a writer more than anything, just to have something I honestly love and worked hard on be published, even if I have to do it myself, is my ultimate goal. Kyle even offered for me to go down to part-time to work on writing more (if I stay with my current job). It is not something we can entirely afford to do right now, but it is nice to know that could be an option.
Kyle and I also have about a million house projects that we really want to get started on. I think the goal is going to be to tackle one room at a time, which is fine because Kyle will be going back to school in the fall and I will be left to do a lot of damage on my own, muwahahaha! My priority will be to focus on writing, but I do plan on getting the house to look and feel more “us”. That and we are tired of looking at brown walls (Seriously, who paints walls the color of poop?).
As for the honeymoon? We are going to take a week off after the wedding to rest but like I said, Kyle will be in school so we are going to plan a trip for next spring. We still have not picked a destination, but we will start planning that after the fall semester.
Babies? Yeah don’t plan on seeing any for a while. I am still not even sure if I want to have kids, I have always wanted to adopt if I were going to have a kid, but that is an entire other post that I will have to get to. We have too many things that we want/need to do with our lives and taking care of three pets is a lot of work, let alone a human being.
So yep, there you are, caught up with our “Life after Marriage” plans. I am pretty excited to share them all with you as they come along.
