when i was younger, i took the myers briggs test. i just recently took it again. apparently i am an ENFJ - the "giver". Want to know more?
pretty interesting actually. it's pretty much on target for my own perception of myself. Ben is a ENTP - the visionary. again, pretty much on target for how i see him.
work is sending me to a week long school on DUI starting tomorrow in Ocala. While I freaked out at first, asking them if they were sending me to traffic (oh good god no) they said they weren't, but this school is supposed to be one of the best trainings. it's taught/run by asa's who have been around forever, the first two days we go over pre-trial motions and dui law (did you know that a dui is probably the hardest jury trial to win? juries hate to find people guilty of it, plus, it's so technically complicated...) the last three days we all get to do a fake trial on a set of facts - it's videotaped and we are criticed by retired judges in the area. only 40 people from FL go a year, and i'm the only one from our district. pretty cool huh?
other than that, things are going really well at work. busy as ever. still waiting for them to move me out of juvenile - but I'm ok staying there for awhile - the judge i have is one of the most respected judges in leon county - he was a state asa, then a federal prosecutor then went up through the ranks of judges quickly. he was in adult felony for years. i get to learn the law and perfect my abilities without the worries of a jury, then i can move up to adult felonies with all that under my belt.
ben and i are basically living together. i think we would be living together, if he didn't have a 60 pound dog. dog needs yard, i don't have one. he has one, but i own a townhouse and he rents. so there you go. he has issues with me still being invovled with my fraternity. he was never in a greek organization, so he doesn't understand. in fact, he grew up hearing about the steriotype all his life, that he's become completly shut off to the idea of greeks and has a preconcieved notion about all greeks. it's sad to me, b/c i love still being invovled and he hates it. i don't understand why he would be so jealous of it (although he swears very loudlly that he's not - which means he is) b/c it's not like i'm hanging around a bunch of guys and he can't go and it's not illegal, and it makes me happy. it's really only one meeting a week - although it's supposed to be two, but he would freak out. whatever. plus we argue about his ex-girlfriend who still calls him - all the time. i wouldn't care so much, but it's his recent ex and they were living together, yada yada. i don't get mad at him, except when he tries to hide the fact that she calls. i know he doesn't talk to her, and he's only not telling me b/c he knows i'll get upset. but, lying - not a good thing....
besides those two things, and a few minor annoyances, we are doing wonderfully. he met the parents when they came down here, and i know momma approved, daddy, well, i make more money then ben, and ben doesn't have a college eduation, so that's two strikes in my dad's book. i asked daddy about his thoughts on ben, he hasn't responded yet - we'll see.
random - we watched the FSU game at a friends house the other night. both got pretty drunk, ben more so than i and he asked me "would you marry me?" to which i freaked out - not b/c it's too soon - ive been in love with him for years, but that he was asking me when we had been drinking - of course when i asked him about it this morning, he says "i was just making sure you WOULD, i wasn't asking you to marry me" hmmm....ok.
i am getting to that point in my life where i want to get married. still not sure about having kids though. i'm still too selfish of a person for that.
