Lots of updates

Posted by Deneb on July 12, 2017, at 13:05:18

I'm glad to see that Babble is back up, and that Dr. Bob is still around. :-)

I'm pretty busy these days. I have a good student contract full time job, and I'll be finishing up my last semester of school by next spring.

I'm also getting married in May after I finish my last semester.

We also just bought a house much sooner than expected. We thought the process would take months, but we found our house in about 3 weeks lol.

Next comes some renovations. My fiance will move before I do because we're waiting to be married first before living together.

I'm so excited about the future :-)

I like to think that I relearned how to attach to others here at Babble, by learning how my actions hurt others, and by experiencing my first strong attachment to another person.

Don't worry, my love has greatly matured since Dr. Bob lol. I'm honestly quite normal now. I think my brain was just a little slow to mature.

I'll be sure to take some time later to read the boards, but I wanted to say "Hi" for now. :-)

Your story is inspiring. I'm glad you found yourself at such a young age.

Congratulations!

Married! Congratulations! What's he like? I'm delighted that Babble played such an important role in your growth.

I met my fiancÚ more than 4 years ago playing a game outside. We both like to play games. We're both very introverted. He's very logical, and intelligent. I'm very attracted to his mind. He has amazing spatial awareness, and is great at doing calculations in his mind. I, on the other hand am um, challenged in these areas lol.

He's very sweet, kind, and understanding. He's not much of a talker in the presence of strangers, but he can be talkative with more familiar people. I'm pretty much the same way, except I'm more talkative with strangers, and probably a bit more socially aware.

We're both geeky, but he's the bigger geek. :-)

He almost never gets angry, is very laid-back, and accepting of others. In all the years I've known him, I've not seen him angry with me. He doesn't really experience much negative emotions much at all. He has a very stable personality, and emotions.

He's also the least judgemental person I know. He tries to see things from other's perspectives to understand them. I think this is why he almost never gets angry.

He's also extremely hard working when needed. He's definitely more hardworking than I am.

We've both discovered that we're very affectionate people, with is a little weird because we both grew up in homes without physical or verbal affection. He's probably more affectionate than I am, but I love it.

He also taught me to be more silly, and playful. He has great relationships with his friends and family. He's the sort of person who has friends for life. I definitely need to work on my friendships more.

We come from pretty different backgrounds, but our values are amazingly similar. It's like convergent evolution with cultures or something lol.

We love one another very much, and neither of us has any doubts about being together for life.

Thanks everyone!

I hope you're all doing well too, but if not, there's definitely hope. I never thought I would get married, but here I am lol.

I'm less passive about life now. There's still plenty that is out of our control, and luck has a big part in life, but it's all about the odds. Trying a lot does improve the odds.

Yeah. Sometimes you need to put yourself out there and do something scary in order to get things that you want. I think I'm learning that I need to be more vocal / demonstrate more persistance (at times) in order to get things that I want.

What are you finishing up in school?

I'm not sure I told you I only managed a C+ for Organic Chemistry. It went a bit too quickly for me with all the functional groups. I was also being beat down by public health people around the same time which involved a lot of time spent writing various documents... But that was a bit of a tragic result, honestly.

I'm 2 weeks into BioChemistry now, though, and so far I'm liking that much better. Learning my amino acids...

I'm really glad to hear things are going well for you.

Do you still have long hair?

I'm doing a diploma in web development.

A C+ can be pretty good, because organic chemistry can be a difficult subject for many people. I failed organic chemistry II the first time I took it.

That's really good. I found the memorization in biochemistry pretty tough.

Well, my hair go as long as upper thigh length, then I went on a trip and got fed up washing it on the trip. I took a pair of scissors and chopped it to just above shoulder length immediately after coming back. I had zero regrets.

But, since that chop, my hair is now waist length again even with a significant trim of a few inches a few months ago.

I think I'll just leave it because I'm lazy, and because it'll be easier to put long hair in an updo for my wedding (but it's mostly laziness lol)
