I registered in 2006, but didn't start regularly posting until 2007.  Since then...

I earned a PhD in Molecular and Cellular Biology from Northwestern University

I moved from Chicago back to my hometown of Cincinnati, OH

Accepted a postdoctoral fellowship at the EPA and I love my job

Adopted Riley (click link for many adorable pics)

Met a guy 5 years younger than me right when I was leaving grad school (and he was starting), that despite my protestations, convinced me to date him, to have a long distance relationship with him for over 5 years and

got engaged to that guy 2 weeks ago, and in 3-4 months we will finally be living in the same place.  :)

sdedalus! Did I know this and had forgotten, or is this new news for the forum? Congratulations! And, I'm afraid you may be right. :)


I don't know anymore.  The news broke on facebook awhile ago.

I think I discovered the podcast while I was working in Thailand for a short period in 2009.  But I only came to the forum after I quit and came back to SG to work

2009:
Discover Filmspotting forum

2010:
My relationship with my long-term GF that was living with me ended, she moved back to Japan
Invested and Partnered in a high end Restaurant in Bangkok... if you go to Thailand and have lots of money, please go spend a lot...

2011:
Sold my condo out West coast and rented an apartment by the East coast (that is only about 40KM)
Met my new GF

2012:
Started a new business with a friend
My friend, partner and Chef at the Bangkok restaurant passed away of a heart attach at 46 years old.
Got engaged

2013 (things to come)
Will close on a new Condo in 2 weeks
Will get Married in about 3 weeks
Will get a Puppy in about 4 or 5 months.

Me as well. Both pretty big life events though.

I would hardly consider myself a life changer. Maybe the P.A. Bootcamp, but not meeting me. I would certainly rank below visiting Cars Land.

Since my last post in this thread:

* started getting counseling
* joined a movie club
* lost my job
* got divorced


Hopefully in the future:

* got a new job that I love
* found the perfect woman
* lost a ton of weight
* paid off my all debt

You really seem to have reached a breaking point in your life Martin. It sounds tough but at the same time I can't but feel hopeful when I hear you talking about it. You seem so hopeful and dedicated, with a fighting spirit that will bring you onwards and upwards. I'm looking forward to follow you on your journey, cheering from the sideline!

When I first joined the forum it was morning.

Now it is afternoon.

Talk about change!
Sara: Good-bye, father Isak. Can't you see you're the one I love? Today, tomorrow and forever.
Isak Borg: I'll keep that in mind.
