So this weekend Vernon and I had a long conversation about us. Over the years (as it is with any relationship) you grow up, start viewing things differently and change your thoughts on some things. You stop doing things you used to do and you start taking on new interests that you never had before. We came to the conclusion (in a very calm matter surprisingly) that this is what has been happening with us. I have grown more sarcastic and less active over the years. Where he has grown more short-tempered and taken on a very active, healthy lifestyle. We figured out that this is the main reason that we have been bumping heads so much lately. In order to keep the peace we have agreed that we will seriously try to take on what the other is asking. I'm not forgoing my personality completely but I tend to "tease" Vernon in front of others and he told me that he doesn't like one of my goals is to try to stop. Also, I'm going to try to be more healthy. At the end of the day I am just not all about it like he is but that's ok. I'm just going to try to not eat junk and try to exercise at least 3 days a week. Not that hard. To be honest I know that I need to do that anyway, this is just another push. As for him, his major goal is to not freak out and lash out at any little thing. It really has become a problem. We're trying to be more communicative and listen to what the other needs.

In other news, I started at Geico today. I love it. Although all we did today was go over the benefits package, rules, regulations, etc. But hearing all of the stories that the different managers had got me more excited than I already was. There are so many opportunities for advancement. More than I originally thought after my interview. I'm really excited about it. I feel like I'm going to be with this company forever. It's a good feeling knowing that I have actually started in a progressive company. I can't wait to actually get started!
