FC: One Year and Counting: The Story of Us
1: Dear John, In early August 2007, we both embarked on a fateful journey known as medical school. After studying harder than we ever had to survive the first semester, we came upon finals week. It was then that we officially met for the first time: OPP Lab Practical. Being the nervous test taker that I am, I barely remembered that day. During the second semester, you would often try to say hi to me, but being in my own little world, I “ignored” you. We finished our first year of medical school, without interacting again, and even though you had an interest in me, you almost gave up on getting to know me. We headed into our second year and as fate would have it, you sat in the row in front of me. We would occasionally talk between class breaks and I would inquire about the various snacks you would bring, including the pudding. Still, it was not until the wine tasting that we really started getting to know each other. Thus began, the ‘Story of Us'... Always and Forever, Cynthia
2: Still getting to know each other, I found myself with an extra ticket to the Miami Dolphins vs. NY Jets game. I thought it would be fun for us to go together, but with the looming hurricane, you were not sure you could go. Thankfully, the hurricane decided to take another path and we could go the game. It was a horribly hot day and you got terribly sunburned, but we still had a ton of fun!
3: After talking on the phone and texting constantly for the next week, along with one very unfortunate lunch at Tijuana Taxi, we went to dinner to celebrate Russ’ birthday down in South Beach. We shared lots of laughs with our friends at Tiramisu and danced the night away at Bed. It was after that night that we both separately started to wonder if there might be something more to this friendship...

19: Even with our busy schedules and 200+ miles between us, we tried to see each other as much as we could. From Cocoa Beach, mini-golf, and Downtown Disney to Cracker Barrel breakfasts and even Nerf Gun fights, we always made our time together worthwhile!
