Re: Do you have a good life or a bad life and why?
I'm extremely happy with where my life is right now.
All things considered, I'm very lucky. I graduated with my B.S. in December, and had a job lined up right out of school. Started a month after I graduated (took time to enjoy graduation + spent 2 weeks up in northern Wisconsin with my girlfriend and her family for NYE), and have since been promoted, and am making great money (especially for my age).
I got really lucky getting this job. Found it through my universities alumni network, and just interviewed for it. No connections, don't know anyone in the industry (which is really rare for someone to be hired into the industry I work in and not have any connections, etc.)...I got lucky. It allows me some nice perks. A week in Dallas at a luxury hotel, drinking by a rooftop pool and going out to steak dinners on the company's dollar...taking customers (on the company's dollar) to see DMB at Riverbend, etc.
I'm also dating an incredible girl that I plan on marrying. We met in a class in college (our "how we met" story is as cheesy, cliche romantic as they get). Immediately there was something different about her, even though she walked into class with sweatpants, an old tshirt and a ponytail every day. In fact, that helped the case, I think. I thought she was gorgeous and from what I could tell, incredibly fun. Love her to death, and plan on proposing sometime in the next 6 months or so. Sometime before Christmas. Need time to figure out where we plan on being in a year or so (her job is going to cause her to move probably in the next year to year and a half), and I want to be financially a lot more stable (have a solid savings account going so I can put down a down payment on a house, etc).
Things are going really well for me, all things considered. I'm very happy with my life.
