We moved here in June and since then have been living in a nice part of Durham. We have a short term lease on a 3 bedroom apt until the end of December. Currently we are under contract for a house. Yah, our first home together. Keep your fingers crossed because the deal is not sealed yet. I am working at Duke University (Go Blue Devils) as an RN. I work on a surgical floor that deals with plastics, ent, urology and women's health. I really like the people there and the patient population is good. I am constantly busy during my long shifts but I only work 3 days a week so I guess I can't complain too much. Jason is Director of Revenue Development for a Resort company that deals with resorts in Aruba, Barbados, etc. The people are extremely nice and the company is a lot better than the one he used to work for (not mentioning name of company but if you are from VA Beach you most likely know it).
While here in Durham, we spend a lot of time trying to learn our way around. We have a Super Target across the street (it is huge and has a large grocery section). It is the second busiest Target in the nation. I LOVE IT!. Jason thinks I need to attend a Target addicts program because I am seriously there like 3 to 4 times a week. There are a lot of colleges around here which make for some good bars and restaurants. We have been down to Franklin Street a few times (this is on UNC's campus) It has a lot of nice bars (where you typically can hang out with the UNC basketball players) and the campus is really nice. Other than that we are somewhat losers in the sense we hang out at home a lot. This is really only because we are saving money to buy that house. Eventually we will get to see all of what the Triangle are has to offer.

This is the "Blue Cup" beer at one of our fav bars called "He's Not Here", I only drink one of these when we go out!
And, yes we have gone to a Carolina Panthers game (they won, of course being that they are better than the Redskins!)
