Howdy all!

Long time no see! I know all of you missed me terribly. :) Ok, ok, I'm probably exaggerating just a bit there, but I'm going to stick with that version of the story anyway! :P

I'm doing well. I got back in school this semester. I'm taking two classes for the time being. After four years of being away from the college environment, I felt I needed to wade my way back into it. My classes are going great although I've had a change of heart as to what I want my career to be. I know: it's probably the first of many times that that will happen. I initially wanted to go into Psychiatry, but I find psychology tedious. Don't get me wrong, the information is interesting... just tedious. However, my love of chemistry is still there, so I'm thinking now of going the Pharmacist route. As an added bonus, I'd have a heads up on any new medications out there, so what's not to love?

Feb 14th will also be a special day this year. It will be the one month anniversary between the new beau and me. I think I may just keep this one too. :) Don't let my understatement fool you; I'm as giddy as a school boy. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Healthwise, everything's fine. I'm beginning to work out, and so far I've lost 5 lbs (YAY!).

Anyway, I thought I'd drop by and swap howdies. I hope everyone is doing well.

"Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful nor conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offense and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people's sins, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes." - 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, adaptation in A Walk To Remember

Good to get that update. You sure figured out a good way to celebrate Valentine's Day.

The world can very definitely use another HIV-sensitive pharamacist, so that's a good deal about your change of studies.

It's often not as easy to have a phoner with your doctor, so when there's a knowledgeable and responsive pharamacist to answer questions about meds it really helps.  And the good ones really know a lot.

Good to hear from you again.
