I have something special in my life.
Do you? What or who is it?

1. A very special young lady
has recently come into my life. I know that this year is going to be special because of the election, but getting to know her is going to make this year very, very special.

I am very happy right now. ;-)

5. That's amazing.
I've met a very wonderful man recently. He's charming, very attractive, funny, and smart. He makes me very happy, indeed. ;-)

2. My family.
I'm a 25-year-old man. I live in Austin, TX. I'm currently attending a diagnostic medical imaging program.

First, my parents and sister.
They live in Kenner, LA. I miss them so much that it hurts, and vice-versa. I spent 12 days at home (their house) last month, and when the time came to leave, I kept putting it off and putting it off. And when I finally did leave, I was an emotional wreck. My mother was holding-back tears, as usual when I leave. I can't stand to see her cry.. it always sets me off. (I'm tearing-up as I type this, and usually when I think of it.)
They frequently ask me when I'm moving back home, and I tell them that it'll be after school is over, which is only 1.5 years away.
The day I move back to be closer to them is THE day I'm most looking forward to (okay, and Election 2004). It's one of the biggest things I'm living for.

Second, my partner.
We met on December 2, 1996 at the University of Mississippi. I tutored him in differential equations. He's kept me sane in these past years, and he's wanting to move back to be with his family after we're done with school. He's the reason I moved out here to Austin. Ahh.. love..

Before moving out for college when I was 17, it was no big deal to me about being so far away from home. I was impervious to homesickness. Then, in Summer of 1999, I had to move back home for medical treatment (testicular cancer). That summer reminded me of how much I missed my parents. Health scares for them and close relatives ensued (and death), and I've resolved that life is too damn short to be away from the ones that you love.

I don't walk around a depressed wreck. I'm generally a happy-go-lucky guy. But when I think about it at any length, I can get emotional (and boy am I intoxicated tonight!:)) I'll hear a song and get emotional.. On the drive from Kenner to Austin this week, I heard a song on NPR where Dumbo's Mama was singing to Baby Dumbo, and that set me off bad. But it's less than two years.. I like having this to look forward to.

3. Oh yeah
being close to your family is special. You're also lucky to be with someone that you really care about.

No tears (unless they are joyful ones) okay?

Making moves and changes is tough for some. You've been through some unusual trials, and I am sure are all the stronger for it.

It'll be a good year!
