Algunas Cosas, and FORCE conference

First off... is anyone reading my blog? If you are, PLEASE write me messages. Don't just stop by and half-ass it. Talk with me. Ok? Thanks. I take valuable time out of my day to write. You should do the same. (Actually, my job is boring and I write to procrastinate, but that's not the point)

Second... next week I'm heading to the FORCE conference in Tampa with my stepmom. I'm not sure what to expect, especially since I think she registered me for all the courses and I really haven't checked anything out myself. But I'm hoping it will be enlightening and that I'll meet lots of people, and also that I'll have a lot to write about when I get home. I promise to take notes and report back diligently.

Third... even though people haven't been commenting on my blog, I myself have reached out to a few people and am happy to say that I've been having stimulating conversations with people about the issue of BRCA. I've thought of lots of important avenues to explore: family networks and other support systems, screening measures, how love-life is affected, health insurance, implications of getting the test, etc...

I realize most of what I've been doing so far is posting articles, and I haven't really sat down and explored any of these issues in detail, so I plan to do that soon. (aka when I have a project at work that I REALLY don't want to get started on)

I think that's about it. I just wanted to post cause I haven't posted in a little bit. And I'm moving into Center City next week (SO EXCITED) so I probably won't be able to post before I go to the conference (leaving next Thursday the 15th). Also this weekend is my 5 year high school reunion. WHEN did that happen?

Happy Friday!
