Christi = Official Project Coordinator at the Institute for Systems Medicine!

Well, it looks like I am staying in Spokane for the time being! I never thought I would say this, but I am actually very excited that I got offered a full-time, salary paying job with a great non-profit organization! 

I am the official, Project Coordinator, for ISM and could not be more happier. I love the staff I work with. Such great people to be around! 

Further, I have just put my holding fee on a new apartment, right off the infamous Centennial Trail and Spokane River. Yay!!! I am excited because it is not run-down like the place I have been living in for about 6 months now. I move in mid-December and could not be more excited! It has a fitness room with weights and treadmills, indoor racquetball courts, and more! A couple specifics that I for sure took for granted that the Beau Rivage has are: a washer/dryer in the unit, air conditioning, a dishwasher, and security cameras all over the premises!!! Yes, this may sound pathetic, but having to save quarters to wash my clothes and hand wash dishes is a chore! 

As far as the down side goes, I will be living by myself, semi-away from campus, but Coll may base out of Spokane while he tries to pursue his life-long dream of going pro in soccer. Wish, I might add, he has a really good shot at doing! Another thing, I will miss the location of Cali for now, specifically Sacramento, next to all of my family and friends, but I am hoping that my family will come up and stay with me! Come on, what is better than a snowy day in Spokane! 

That's all for now... peace & love.
