2nd Year anniversary coming up
« on: March 03, 2012, 04:22:19 PM »
In about a month, I will have been diagnosed as positive for two years.  Time flies huh!  Nothing unusual has happened so far.  Just going through things on a day-to-day basis.  Grad school keeps me very busy, I don't even have much of a social life right now, although I do try.

Major academic milestones are about to come up as well.  We'll see how that goes.
