Life is good in SoCal. I've been working for almost four years now in research administration at the medical school at UCSD. Like most of my occupations, this is one that I stumbled into, but I have been enjoying it. I help coordinate the study documentation and regulatory approvals for behavioral intervention studies, primarily in the area of reducing HIV and STI risk in high-risk populations (prostitutes, drug users). My boss is well-established in his field, and he keeps cooking up new projects, which makes the job interesting. Almost all of his funding (and hence my salary) comes from the National Institutes of Health, so thank you, American taxpayers!
Prior to this job, I grabbed a chance to go back to school (at UCSD) for a while to learn how to read the Bible in the original languages (a goal of mine since the early 90s, when I became interested in religion and joined the Episcopal Church). I was privileged to study with three giants in Hebrew Bible scholarship who just happened to be teaching at UCSD. That took up nearly four years, during which time I also worked as a teaching assistant and as a part-time editor.
I moved out to San Diego in 1993, following my then-boyfriend (we're no longer together). This is the longest I have ever lived in one place in my life, and all I can say to those of you who have never visited San Diego is: if you do come, you'll see why people who move here generally end up staying! I think I may have checked a weather forecast about half a dozen times (at most) in the last 16 years. It is also an extremely open climate for gays and lesbians. The annual Pride Parade in San Diego is the largest event of any kind here, and there are numerous LGBT organizations, including social, political, athletic, artistic, and religious.
My sister Laura (known to most FHSers as Lulu) lives in Monterey, and we try to meet up at least once, usually twice a year, most often to go on some camping excursion (favorite spot: Yosemite). I get back to Rochester every couple years; I do miss seeing my nieces and nephews grow up (but see preceding paragraph).
My most recent passion has been long-distance running; I started up about a year ago, and began entering races just for fun. I now have several 10Ks and two half-marathons under my belt, and to my grateful amazement, my knees and feet are still holding up. I run weekly with the local FrontRunners club, and occasionally I drive up to L.A. to run with the FR club up there. I may eventually do a marathon, but for now I'm just seeing how things go with 13.1-milers.
Best wishes to all my classmates, and I would love to hear from you if you care to get in touch.
