I believe in signs and symbols. As an English major, you have to be on the look out for every little symbol while analyzing literature to create a 10 page paper from a 3 line poem where no outside sources are allowed. I think this may have made me hyper-sensitive to reading into every day, normal seeming occurrences.
I was texting with Rainman the other night as we do, and I stated that I really do think we were fated to be together. When we first met, we were already in relationships with other people. We each broke it off with the other person (but not because of each other, those relationships had run their course). We both took time to figure out what we wanted. And here we are today, super happy, super in love, super ready to take on the next adventure (poor sentencing structure -- I do promise I studied English Lit though!!!). It just feels like all of these things happened so we could end up together. And I have never had so much in common with my partner -- its uncanny how similar our backgrounds are, how much we adore the same things, how we know what catch phrase the other is saying and where it originated, etc. etc. etc.
We are preparing for the next step in our relationship and we are going to move in together. I would be lying if I said I wasn't a bit nervous when we first discussed this idea. The last time I moved in with a boyfriend, it was a disaster. This time feels right though. And again, it feels like all of the stars are aligning.
We received news today that we have a place to move into in September when our leases are up. A beautiful brand new place that we both fell in love with when we looked at it. A place that no one else has ever lived in. A place we can call home.
I am over-the-moon excited about this. He sent me a simple text this morning that it went through and I could get excited. I want to go home and start packing.
A new chapter of my life is about to start. And this time all of the great characters from the last chapter are in it! Thank you Universe. Thank you for making all of this happen for me.
