We’ve been married for over a year now.  How insane is that?  While we just celebrated one anniversary, we’re also coming up on an even more important one, the day we met.  We’ve known each other for almost 7 years now.  And I’m more in love now than I ever have been.  I’ve heard it said that the first year is either the hardest or it’s an extension of the “honeymoon” stage.  I definitely see some difficult times ahead (we don’t want to stay in this area forever but I just got this new, amazing job so I feel obliged to stick it out for a little while at least) but because we’ve been in a romantic relationship for so long, I’m not sure it’s going to be radically different than it’s always been.  We’ve grown up together, having met when we were still teenagers, a time in an individual’s life where there’s a lot of growth and maturing happening (at least we hope so).  He really is my best friend, we’ve been through a lot together, both good and bad.  Those bad times have really refined us as individuals and as a couple.  I love our love and am so excited to see what’s in store for us.

  1. I’m good. I’m starting a Masters program this fall with Boston University. It’s online, though I’ll be visiting the campus periodically to check in with my professors so I can get good recommendations for when I get ready to move on to my Ph.D. How are you guys?

  2. Yay, Jen! That sounds really exciting. Where are you going for your Ph.D?

    We’re doing really well. I got a job at St. Joseph hospital working as a “registration specialist.” I’m still training for the different shifts but it’s been really fun. Just yesterday they were saying how much they like me and wish the other new hire was like me. Apparently there was some tension between her and the girl training her. :( But I like it, especially now that I’m really getting the hang of things.

    Jason’s going back to school, starting on the 31st. He’s just doing his GEs right now but I’m really proud of him for going back.

  3. I don’t know about the Ph.D. yet. I’m still looking around at options. I’m having a difficult time finding exactly what I’d like to do… luckily, I have plenty of time to find the right places to apply.

    I’m happy to hear the new job is going well! And that’s great, about Jason going back to school! Is he going to Humboldt as well?

  4. Yeah, there are a lot of options out there, it’s a bit overwhelming to be sure.

    Right now he’s just going to the JC, saving money and trying to figure out what he wants to do. He’s been saying he wants to be a D.O. practicing general or family medicine but we’ll see as he goes through school.
