Don't know where the time went. [Nov. 27th, 2006|12:09 pm]

[music |9 Crimes- Damien Rice]

I guess myspace has been my means of communicating with friends and family this past year or so, and this here livejournal has gotten rather dusty. I don't really even know where to begin updating, as this past year has been a whirlwind of a ride. Come December 27th, Victor and I will be celebrating our 1 year anniversary. How crazy is that? It feels like just yesterday I was walking down the aisle to join hands with the love of my life, and now we're coming up on 1 year with many more anniversaries to come.

I'm currently living right outside Charleston, SC by myself working in mgmt with Bath and Body Works, as Victor is away in Groton, CT for more training until March, and then we'll be off to Bangor, WA for a more permanent duty station. I can't wait to be back on the west coast, and have my family and friends be more readily accessible, at least more so then 3,000 miles away. This past year has been a trying time for me, missing my family, friends, and old job, and now missing my husband while he is away. However, talking to my family at least 3 times a week, keeping in touch with friends via internet, and finding a job that I love has kept me sane. I have yet to feel like a resident of South Carolina though. I still feel like i'm visiting. It's weird, but I haven't too much longer here in the South, and my hair will very much appreciate getting away from this humid horrid weather.

Victor and I will be coming home from December 20th- January 2nd, and I couldn't be more excited! I don't know how I managed to get that much time off during the craziest time of the year for retail, but i'm ever so grateful! I'm going to try to make my rounds to as many people as I can, but to be honest, I can't wait to just be lazy and spend as much time with family as I can.

I think that about sums up where I am in my life at this point, and maybe i'll even try to post a little more often if the urge so comes.

So I finally got with the program and got DSL. Now it's not so much a hassle to sign on the internet and actually take the time to check out this this here live journal.

As of December 27, 2005, I recently became a newlywed and am loving every minute being Mrs. Ochoa. I'm still alive and busy but at least I don't have an excuse to not take a couple seconds out of my day every so often and give a quick update or check out my friends page. I'm still assistant managering here at the Starbucks in Century Center, loving every minute of it, but i'm fixin to get out of here come beginning of May to make my way out to South Carolina to live with my baby, the love of my life, Victor, and start a whole new exciting life with him!

Until my scanner decides it wants to work and/or I can find the chord to my mom's camera, I can't upload anymore pictures, until then, meet my handsome husband! :)

[mood |cheerfulHappily anxious :)]

I feel like i've been away from live journal for too long and there's too much to update on so I guess i'll just say that in other news, aside from the news I haven't told you...I'm engaged, soon to be married, and moving to South Carolina.

How's that for an update?

So. Someone did a no call/no show. No one could come in and/or wouldn't call back. It was 2 people on the floor my whole shift on a SUNDAY morning. The ice machine broke with a line to the door for 4-5 consecutive hours and 10-20 drinks on the bar to be made at all times. I vented, and i'm okay, aside from soreness and tiredness.

I've been watching stuff about 9/11 on the Discovery and History channel since I got off work today. I couldn't even get a nap in because of the riveting footage and stories that had my eyes glued to the television all afternoon and evening. Had me reminiscing on the live news footage caught back in 2001 when I lived in sacramento as I awoke on the couch that september morning hearing it on the news in my sleep, as I always left my tv on when I fell asleep, and then awakening to it not being a bad dream, but reality. Today, and in watching stuff on 9/11 brought back all of the sadness of that day. Made me really upset on the verge of tears...and glad that I have the people I have in my life right now. Reminds me of why it is I always say "I Love You" before I get off the phone with friends and/or family, so that if ever anyone I knew and loved were to leave this life at any given moment, I would want them to know how much I loved them. I've never taken anything or anyone for granted, and for that I am able to sleep at night.

The hours following my horrible day at work, with the rememberance of 9/11 on tv, my day just didn't seem so bad anymore. Sure I was tired, stressed, and on the verge of tears from my ultimate day from hell, the whatever could go wrong, will go wrong, and DID go wrong type of day, but...BUT, I came out alive and that much stronger, and in my opinion, pretty damn kick ass because I made due and stayed calm under pressure, and if ever a thing to be proud of myself in the workplace, is that of my calm and cool exterior during times of high volume and stress...and for that I am proud.

I've had some pretty rough days at work, but in a little under two weeks the love of my life will be in my arms once again and I couldn't be any happier in that anticipation. I've been thinking about all of the times in the past he has made me smile, the times when i'd gotten giddy with my girlfriends about him, the times I subconsciously tricked myself into thinking I didn't like him but would fall asleep thinking about him and if I were lucky, dream a little dream of him. I've been thinking about every single moment I spent with him, and the moments we have yet to share, and think about how truly and sincerely happy I was, and still am, to have him in my life now and hopefully forever.

Victor Javier Ochoa, Saying "I Love You" doesn't even scratch the surface of my feelings for you. It's like trying to squeeze us into 3 small little words. What does it mean? I love you I love you I love you. Sometimes, I feel like i'm so in love with you, that all I say is I Love you I Love you I Love you. "I Love You" means how your body feels curled up behind me in bed, or when you're in front of me, how I love to shower you with kisses. It is very important for me to express to you how much you really mean to me. I wish I could do this in person while you hold me in your arms, gazing into eachothers eyes. But since we are physically separated by miles of emptiness, this expression must come in the form of words such as these. This is all very difficult for me, as I know it is for you, to be separated for so long. Life is of that, trials of this kind which test our inner strength and more importantly our love and devotion for one another. After all, it is said that True Love is boundless and immeasurable and overcomes all forms of adversity and in that truth, if it is genuine as I feel our love is, we will grow stronger with each assault. Our love will continue to be assaulted and I am convinced our love is true as the longer I am away from you the greater my yearning to be with you again. You, my love, are my prince charming and I will be your devoted princess if you will continue to have me. I cherish every thought of you, prize every memory that rises in the depths of my mind, and live for the day when our physical separation will no longer be. Until that moment I will continue to send to you across the miles my tender love, my warm embrace through my sweater, and my passionate kisses.

I Love You Sweetheart :)

<3 Me.

I logged in thinking I was going to give an actual update but this briefing will have to do.

Finished up my first week of assistant managering at Century Center 'Bux. I like it so far. I'm still not use to working so much...my tiredness is reminscent of when I was working the 'bux and mci and I haven't quite adjusted. At least when I was working the 2 jobs I had Victor to come home to at night, but now I come home tired to a usually hot room, and a restless nights sleep. Bleh and Blah.

I feel so incredibly close to him...and pain stakingly far at the same time. I want to cry tears of happiness everytime I hear his voice, and tears of sadness the moment I have to get off the phone with him. I hate that I don't get to talk to him as much because of both of our busy and conflicting school and work schedules. I just want to cry right now because I want to call him for no reason at all just to tell him how much I love him and how special he is. I'm getting all teary eyed right now just THINKING about how much I miss him!

I've become a crying, emotional fool. I hope my baby doesn't mind :/
