I haven't been on dA in a long time and it looks like a ton of stuff has changed! A lot of things have changed for me, as well, some good and some very, very bad.
My grandfather passed away March 7 after fighting for months with mesothelioma. He's the first close family member that I've lost and it's been a very difficult process. We had a long time to come to terms with it and say our goodbyes, but it's still hard to believe he's gone. It's best that I don't dwell on it too much or it'll drag me down, so I'll just move on to the good things that have been happening around it...
Matt and I are getting married the 15th of this month (5/15/15) and a bunch of our friends are coming from out-of-state, which is super exciting.
Also, Matt was accepted to a PhD Program at Texas A&M! So, July 1 we are making a 14-hour move to Texas. We've already visited the town and the campus and have worked with a realtor to find a place that would take all our pets. Because of my veterinary background, one of the property managers made an exception for us and so we have a cute little duplex reserved!
The month prior, we will be making a temporary move to my childhood home in Tennessee. I'm leaving my job May 30 and we're taking to month to get everything in order and finish up any business we have in Kentucky. Also, we'll take that month to spend time with our families before we move so far away.
That's about it, I think. Basically, life is running out of control right now and I'm just doing the best I can to keep up. The only site I really frequent now is Tumblr (greenmamba5.tumblr.com/ and just shoot me a message if you'd be interested in a follow-back). I reblog fandom things, and occasionally post life updates, nail art, and cooking photos. I would try to stretch myself back to dA, but at this point, I just can't see it happening. If anyone is really interested in keeping in touch or chatting, let me know.
