Just registered for my last semester of undergrad. This feels so unreal. Feels like just yesterday I went to my first Freshman orientation with my friends Stephen H; David K; Jae L; and Feng X. Feels like two weeks ago that I met my four wonderful girl best friends.
I went through so much, learned more than I could’ve imagined about myself, those around me, and where I belong.I can’t believe it’s actually happening. I’m graduating at the end of this year… moving to DC with my boyfriend… and starting a life on my own. Wish me luck!

I don’t know what I was so worried about as a kid. I dated people before and it didn’t work out. I’ve been hurt and I’ve lost and at one point… I was even bitter. But after everything that happened… I still ended up with an amazing guy who loves every single atom that makes me me. So ladies, if you’re worried… don’t worry. It just gives you more gray hair.

I told my mom I’m moving with Sam. And surprisingly, she took it really well. My mom and I had a sit-down talk about moving after I got home from DC about what we are going to do for jobs and how we are going to live out there on our own. She was completely open to the fact that we are moving out together. I don’t know what I was so worried about…
Although she accepts me moving out with my boyfriend… she’s afraid I’m going to get a ton of backlash from my family because they are more traditional. I think it will be okay though because in the end it will be my life I have to live and my life I am going to be happy with.
I told my mom I love Sam and that he loves me. I’ve never told my mom anything like that before. She almost cried. I think she’s just really happy that I found someone that I can see my life with and that she approves of.

My Dearest Allie,
I couldn’t sleep last night because I know that it’s over between us. I’m not bitter anymore, because I know that what we had was real. And if in some distant place in the future we see each other in our new lives, I’ll smile at you with joy and remember how we spent the summer beneath the trees, learning from each other and growing in love. The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds, and that’s what you’ve given me. That’s what I hope to give to you forever. I love you. I’ll be seeing you.

We haven’t given up yet.
No new updates really… other than the fact that I’m going to DC for a 5-day conference on Thursday. I hope I get some connections over there for congress or jobs in the political field. I need some names and numbers. Better pack a bunch of business cards along with all my dress-suits.

So the internship in DC doesn’t look very good because I won’t make the background clearance date in time… my Uncle says to hang tight because I might have a better chance after I graduate in December.
Mom was talking about how she’s glad I’m moving to DC and nowhere else because I at least have some family there. She was saying something about marriage too but I had stopped eavesdropping by then…

Here’s a quick tentative date/count-down!
March: Going to D.C for a conference and try to find a job/network/get connections while I am out there. Spring Break - flight to D.C to visit my uncle and work my networking skills then and there.. maybe (if I can find the monies that is…). Find out if I get my Michigan internship and check on my D.C internships.
April: Finish my Senior Project and concentrate on school and saving money. This is basically like the month of February (boring…). Fall registration opens? Register for my last set of classes!
May: Finals. Sam’s graduation! Sam’s 2 graduation parties that I’m going to throw him. Vacation with my family? If I got either internship, I would fly out by the end of this month.
June: I turn 22! I’ll either be in Michigan or D.C and there is a small and slight chance that I will be here in Colorado… but that is least likely. Being without Sam.
July: Still in Michigan or D.C. Again, slight chance that I’ll be home during this time. Being without Sam. Flying home for a weekend because it’ll be my cousin’s birthday.
August: Flying home from Michigan or D.C or having Sam fly out to D.C to visit me so we can go around and figure out what we want to do and where in D.C we are going to live. Sam turns 25 (quarter of a century… need to remember to ask Duacee to make a cake for him)! Fly back to Denver. Back to school for my last semester.
September: Finishing up school. Planning the rest of the trip to D.C and hopefully securing some jobs or some places to live. Working to make money for the move.
October:Finishing up school. Saving money. Refer to previous month.
November: Refer to previous month.
December: Finals. My graduation! My graduation parties! The holidays.
January: New Year. Hopefully everything will be final by now. Moving and such things. Having a sit-down talk with my parents and Sam about Sam and I moving out.
February: Packing. Moving.
March: We outta here.
