Default It's been a while!

Too long, really, since I've been on this site with all you guys. So I'm making this post as kind of an update on me. And knowing me, it'll probably be long winded, lol.

Anyways, I've kept in touch with some of you guys via the occasional text. But over the last couple months, I had to make some changes to my phone to get around some stupid Verizon crap (like making me pay to use my data for mobile hotspot). Anyways, I rooted my Android phone, giving me more control, but spent quite some time getting things worked out running a custom ROM, etc. etc. I had trouble getting and sending texts for a while, so I apologize for any of your who sent me texts (or taunting pictures of fish you caught, or food you've cooked) and haven't heard back from me...

Many of you know I'm pharmacy school; but only a few know that the first year I tried to get in (would have been Fall of 2012) I didn't make it, but made the 10-12 person waiting list. about 250 people applied for 106 spots. I spent a year in the bachelor's program and tried again this past year. I made it in and just finished up my first semester in the PharmD program earlier this month.

I've also been working as a pharmacy tech for about 8 months now. So between that and school I've been really busy. But I really enjoy what I'm doing for the most part.

I've picked up another hobby I can't afford: guns! Over the summer I scraped up enough cash to buy myself a S&W 9mm Shield. I don't have enough time (or ammo) to shoot it as much as I'd like but who really does. I'm going to be getting my CCW this spring with a couple friends and possibly my dad.

Fishing was quite limited this last year too. I starting teaching my friend how to fish and we went a couple times in the beginning of the year. I didn't get out again till this fall when my dad caught his first musky. I did get my personal best LM this year though and almost added another musky to my count.

I've been working as much as I can over Christmas break to hopefully make it through another semester of school with no student loans. Unfortunately, I haven't gotten as many hours as I'd have liked. But I'm going to use that time to go shooting with a few friends who I've been trying to get to the range with for a while.

A lot of forums have come and gone briefly over this past year, but I always find myself back here, back talking fishing and gear (although I'm way out of the loop on that), and back with you guys. So I'm going to try to make time to visit once a week, even once I start back up in school in a couple weeks.

As of June 14, 2014 the members of the forum have moved to!

Great to hear from you, Anthony! Thanks for the update. Sounds like you're incredibly busy, but you're on a great track. Keep it up! Oh, and congrats on your new PB LM even if you didn't get to fish much this year. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Glad you're still around, Anthony.
I smell smoke, and I hear sirens. Do you think that's a problem?

Hey Ant. Thought you were gone gone gone. Glad to hear otherwise! You've still got my text info, right?
Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing it is not fish they are after.
