    Hey, there! emoticon

    Molecular bio, huh? I was going to take that course this semester but actually decided to take virology instead. We use a lot of the molecular techniques, so I'm still gleaning a lot from it. And, really, viruses are just cool. Where do you go to school? I've got a B.A. in linguistics, which is fascinating, but unfortunately, there's not much of a job market for it. I'm thinking grad school someday for ecology or conservation, but we'll see.

    Sigh, like you, I used to be (reasonably) physically fit. After high school, I started running on my own, just for health reasons, and I grew to love it. Over the years, I'd stop due to time constraints, etc, but I always started up again. I've reached the point where I also have a foot injury (from jumping out of a tree a few years ago...hehe), and it repeatedly acts up when I run. I also attribute this to the extra 30 or so pounds I'm carrying.

    When we both reach our goals, let's run a marathon together! I'm totally stoked. As you know, I'm sure, science takes up a considerable portion of one's life, but I'm not placing my health on the backburner anymore. emoticon

    Hi! Thanks for shooting me a message, I was hoping it wouldn't take too long to get to know some folks on this site :)

    What a coincidence that you're getting into cake decorating! I did cake decorating at a bakery for 3 years when I was in my teens/early 20's to help put myself through college. I have to admit, I loved it but it was the reason for almost 25 pounds of my weight gain. At least since you are doing it as a hobby you can seek out healthier options like splenda icing or white cake instead of yellow (no yolks!). Maybe we could swap some reciepes that have a health conscience twist?

    I am still trying to figure out what kind of excersize program I should get into. My husband and I would like to purchase a treadmill to get us through the winter, and I think I'm going to give some aerobic videos a try. Always open to suggestions! I have never had a regualar workout program so I'm feeling a bit in the dark.

    Thanks for adding me, and please keep in touch.
