Two big things to announce.
First off, Scott and I are getting married!! He proposed last night, while we were walking through the Arboretum. He gave me a beautiful Lake Superior agate to commemorate the moment, and I've been carrying it in my pocket and smiling ever since. The more it sinks in, the happier I feel. I feel absolutely wonderful.
Second item - not nearly as emotional, but still exciting: I am no longer an employee of the Electric Sheep Company. Instead, I'm going to start taking pre-med classes and studying for the MCAT so that I can go to medical school and eventually be a physician! I've been thinking about going into medicine for a long time... but now I finally feel ready to move on it. I have about a year's worth of classwork to do before I can apply, and then it will take about a year for the schools to make their decisions, so the earliest I'll start is fall 2010, which is really not such a long ways away. It's going to be tough, but I know it will be worth it, and it feels good to know that.
