Living in the Caribbean hasn't been easy.
Sure, the weather's nice. We have a terrific view. And I made some amazing friends I hope to keep with me for life. The work situation for my fiance was very trying. I won't go into detail because we've filed a complaint against his former job. It was a very hard situation for him, and made it very hard on the both of us.
My fiance worked with FEMA on Staten Island (he is from Brooklyn!) right after Hurricane Sandy. Getting off the island and back to the states was the best thing to happen to him. When he came back, all rejuvenated knowing there was more out there for us, he talked to a career coach and got his resume in excellent shape.
It took him awhile to realize what he wanted to do with his life. I'm glad he's finally reached the point where he knows what he's good at, and wants to do it for the next 25+ years.
So, with that, we're off to DC. I'm very excited to get back to city life, and live in a new area. I don't know what I will do for work, but I am sure I'll find something. Fiance will be making enough money to support the both of us, but I promised him my student loans would be taken care of by me and no one else. I hope to find something in the field of work I did before we moved here, but that could be difficult and I would just find something to do in the mean time.
I might be a little slacking over the next two weeks, but we should be moving to an apartment building that has a gym!
