Big Bad Thursday: Jordan Is Moving To Chicago!!

***Big Bad Thursday is all about Bad. He's one of my best friends and was supposed to be a charming, if commitment-phobic bachelor. He finally realized that a wonderful woman he already had in his life was worth giving up bachelor-hood. So now Bad and Jordan are in love and working towards building a life together.***

Quick Recap: The last post I wrote spoke of an interview Jordan has in Chicago. That interview is actually today. Bad has also applied for a Chicago grad school. The apartment he has in Chicago is begging for Jordan's interior designer touch to make it their own. All they really need to do is get acceptance letters and pick a date for her moving here.

Like I said, Jordan's interview is today. It will basically be a countdown from there to get an official acceptance into this program. But there are more steps to this move than meets the eye. Jordan is currently living with her parents in St. Louis, and she works two jobs there. I went to St. Louis last weekend to help chaperon for a church thing (which is why I wasn't blogging, so sorry guys). While I was there, she had a free evening, so we went out on a chick date. It's like the man-date described in I Love You, Man. Exactly like that, but with two females instead. Anyway, while we were out, Jordan explained to me that she talked to her mother and basically got her mother to suggest she move in with Bad if she was going to be in grad school in Chicago. It's always nice to use reverse psychology in place of, "Mom, I'm going to be living in sin starting next month for an undisclosed length of time."

Jordan also explained that she had given notice on her two jobs. She gave them 30 day notice at the beginning of July. That got me really excited. And class starts at the beginning of September, so she'll have to move to Chicago and get settled pretty early in August. That means she'll be a Chicago resident in literally two weeks and some change. I'm so excited for Bad and Jordan! After the years they've been doing their thing, it's nice to see them make this grown-up step towards something really real.

I doubt they're about to get ready to head down the aisle any time soon. This is based on the Bad I know and the Jordan I'm getting to know. They're both really focused on making sure their careers get up off the ground, but they're also really focused on being together in a way that works for both of them right now. I can't wait to see what happens next.
