I signed up for this blog back in 2007; it was my senior year at Salve Regina University and I was basically hanging around the library, bored out of my mind, so I messed around on a computer for a bit and stumbled across this place. I really don't post a whole lot, but I do enjoy reading everyone's NBA/Celtics insights and various other threads.
I eventually obtained a master's degree and worked in pathology for a few years before I just wasn't feeling it anymore. I had a couple odd jobs in between, but then found my place of sorts at my local Rhode Island Parks & Recreation Dept., a job one doesn't need higher education to perform, but it provides good benefits, and I am in a bargaining unit. I recently obtained my class B commercial driver license, too, which my department required in the last few years. As odd as it may sound, it's the happiest I've ever been. Is that abnormal???
I became engaged about a 8 months ago; my fiancé is a title/real estate attorney at a local firm and clerked for the Rhode Island Supreme Court last year (thanks for your help, csfansince60s, when she had some questions about writing samples to submit). Things are good on our end. It's nice to see life, with respect in trying to build something with someone, coming together.
