Well well well...

Today is an important day for me. I finally reached a check point that lets me know that I'm doing good at this whole "life" thing. Don't get me wrong, things are nowhere near perfect, but then again life isn't supposed to be. So what makes today so special. I had my 120 day review at work. The following is the outcome of said review:

Overall Comments
I couldn’t ask for a more focused, passionate, driving employee!! If only all employees had Brandon’s work ethics. Definitely a must for my team!!

So now that I've gotten to this checkpoint, I'm ready for what's to come. Mainly, I'll allow myself more free time to the things I love (ie. gaming & LJ'ing), as well as I'm going to start looking at apartments in the surrounding areas and move out of my parents' house. I'm going to start saving for my Mini Cooper that I've wanted for so long (as soon as I pay for this year's Christmas).

For the first time in a long time I'm happy with myself. I'm proud of what I'm doing. I have realistic goals set and a time frame for which I was to achieve them. I've been off of the meds for almost a month now and I'm doing well.

Because of my good review, I'll be getting a raise in a week or so, not sure how much, but a raise nonetheless. Tomorrow I go to visit my aunt and uncle's new house. They already moved in so hopefully there'll be no work tomorrow, just house warming. Later tonight its movies with Jules and Barrett.

What's this? Am I actually looking forward to days to come? Am I actually happy with myself while being single (meaning, is my happiness true to myself and not dependent upon another)?

Things are looking up.
