Multipoint Status Update

with 4 comments

Ok, ok, status updates:

1. I graduate this Saturday.

Yup, that is right. After two years of classes learning about fingerprints, firearms, DNA, autopsies, homicides, crime scenes, and the like, I will be getting my Master of Forensic Science degree from The George Washington University. I’m feeling a tad ambivalent about it though. On one hand I’m extremely happy that I’m done with school (for probably the rest of my life). On the other hand, I’m wondering what I’m going to do with myself. I won’t have classes, homework, a job, and a life to juggle. I’m fearful that I’m going to be bored. But I have lots of hobbies I want to pursue (like my photography, guitar, and violin). Maybe I’ll actually keep updating my blog consistently (what a concept!).

2. No Remicade for Me.

I visited my GI doctor last month and he decided that it isn’t the right time for me to go on Remicade (more about Remicade here). He felt that my symptoms weren’t severe enough to warrant me going on such an extreme treatment method. Instead, he upped my 6-MP dosage. Hopefully this will slowly heal my fistula. Since the visit the pain and discomfort from my fistula has dropped a lot. I’m going to set up a visit with my colon and rectal surgeon for next month to see how it is doing and hopefully see if the drain that is set in there can be removed.

3. Flickr and Twitter Updates

I have seriously become uber-addicted to Twitter lately. I’m updating at least once a day (if not more than that sometimes). I’ve also set it up so that I can update it via SMS text messaging through my cell phone. Since I don’t have an unlimited text messaging plan with my phone company (T-Mobile), I am trying to keep myself from updating via SMS only when I’m not within reach of internet access (which is pretty rare).

I’ve also updated my flickr with a bunch of pictures. Some are from my friend Larry’s wedding and some are from Cheri’s friend Melissa’s wedding. There are also a bunch of random other images as well. Here’s one of my favorite photos from this last batch, our friend Kate (left) with Cheri (right) getting ready for Larry’s wedding:

Some Updates

Here are some updates since I haven’t been posting much lately:

I’m now on Twitter.  You can follow me, join me, or ignore me.

Cheri and I went to C-Peake on Saturday for a quick trip to celebrate her brother’s birthday.  The fun thing was that it was a surprise and had no idea we were coming to see him.  We had a surprise dinner at P.F. Chang’s with him, his parents and his friends.  I got the Double Pan Fried Noodles and didn’t really like it.  I’ll stick to the Kung Pao next time.

I’m almost halfway through my Fall classes.  I’m currently taking Crime Scene Investigation II, Biological Aspects of Forensic Science, and Examination of Questioned Documents.  I’m enjoying them all, but my bio class is a little boring, but at least the teacher is good.  Questioned Documents is my favorite class this semester.

I’m into too many TV shows — (no) thanks to TiVo.  I’m watching Heroes, Chuck, Aliens in America, Reaper, Pushing Daisies, Private Practice, The Office, 30 Rock, Grey’s Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, and Brothers and Sisters.  Thankfully, because of of TiVo, I can just record all of them during the week and have TV marathons on the weekends.  I cannot wait until Lost returns!!!

Cheri and I went camping a few weeks ago at the Big Meadows campground in the Shenandoah National Park.  It was really fun and it was the first time that I’ve been camping without parents.  It was super relaxing.  Plus we hiked some of the Appalachian Trail — which was really cool (and challenging to boot).  Here are some pictures from the trip.
