Alex is busy making us money. He's really sweet to do that. Most weeks he is traveling somewhere across America (or the Globe sometimes!) which means nice financially and crappy in the whole communication department. I don't think we're quite back into the swing of being in a long distance relationship, and it seems we just long for each other's company when we are lucky enough to have it (which is averaging out to be around 2 days per month). I really like that Alex and I can jump right back into each other's lives when we are apart from it for long periods of time. It's one of those signs to me that we really are best friends. There is no awkward "what shall we talk about" period, which is nice. I do wish we were better at communicating on a daily basis whether by text or voice- but it seems that we're both too busy and when we're not together our lives are separate, so we don't really go into the day play-by-play. That's not to say that we don't talk when we do have something to say. I'm not sure if I am whining or even making sense, but there you have it. Alex was in Beverly Hills last week and is in Las Vegas next week for work. He stays very busy with normal work, as well as doing side CAD projects for work. He is enjoying the company of his family, even though he doesn't get to see them very often. I am still trying to remember how to cook for one, and usually end up going back to college foods like Ramen.
I am taking lots of classes- Legal Research and Writing, Intro to Law, Communication Theories (my capstone class), Constitutional Law, Media Law, Broadcast Management, Horsemanship, and Public Administration. I was elected to be the Vice President of the Legal Studies Student Association and am in charge of Phi Sigma Alpha and the LSSA's charitable event, which we will be doing in October. I am still working at the law office as a paralegal and more often, a communication manager. I am also working at the University as the Social Media Manager for University College. In October I am holding two faculty trainings on social media- so I stay pretty busy there.

I feel that I have grown so much in the last 5 years of my life. I look back at the person I was in high school- and even into my first and second years of college, and feel that I am a completely different person. Alex and I often look back at who we were and laugh. He is no longer the complete hermit who blushed every time I kissed him, who couldn't communicate his feelings without a computer, and I am no longer the angry, overbearing, in your face person who had to let everyone know her opinions. Yes, Alex is still shy, and yes, I am still assertive, but we both have grown into better people, and I feel that Greece will help us grow even more.
I hope all is well with you, and would like to remind you to check out my study abroad blog, if you are interested in that journey. http://sherayassemesterabroad.blogspot.com/
