Comments: 'Updated'
Wow a lot has happened in the last 3 years since I last posted anything. In January of '08 I moved back to Elm Creek to be with my fiancé. Yeah I'm getting married November 29! His name is Marty. He works in Kearney. We are hoping to move to Kearney soon. Not really a big fan of Elm Creek after living in Lincoln for 8 years. I'm working at New West Sports Medicine. I like it, but I do miss Lincoln. No kids yet but we did just get a great dane puppy. She's more than a handful right now. Hope everyone is good! Hope to talk to some of you soon!!

Comments: Ladies and Gents, Life is GREAT. I am still pursuing my Bachelor's, due to many things in my life it has taking me a little longer than others. Of course a minor bump in the road here and there will not stop me from pursuing my dream. I will graduate on Dec of 2006 with a degree in Political Science and a Minor in English Lit. I will continue my education and pursue an MA in Public Administration...enough school talk. I'm single and lovin every minute of it, I'm planning to stay in Nebraska for a few more years to finish schooling and take care of the fam. I'm currently employed at Health and Human Services as a Family Support Specialist, I love this job because I help kids out. I think that is enough info...Hope everybody is loving life as much as I am. *Live*Love*Laugh*

Comments: I just now found this website and was very excited to read about everyone's' lives so far...I didn't actually graduate with you guys as I moved my junior year. After graduation I started working for the airlines and did that for about 3yrs, I was only in it for the flight benefits and I got to travel a ton. Then it was time to get serious and I've been back in school and I'm proud to say I'm a straight A pre-med, getting a BA in Biomedical Sciences and then off to med school. Not married and no kids but I love my life so far. Glad to hear everyone is doing well.

Comments: I am still traveling around doing presentations for college students for a company called NDI who's based in KC. I never thought I'd travel with my career, nor be a salesman, not to mention be a public speaker for a living, but I love my job and I never thought I'd get to say that either.
McKenna, my daughter, is awesome for those of you who know her. She just turned 8 believe it or not! Just got married this last summer to a wonderful & gorgeous woman named Sarah, moved to Texas, built a house and life is grand!
I'm a Dave Matthews Band fanatic so in the meantime you'll catch me at shows or visiting good ole' NE to visit fams. Hope everyone else is living in the moment, after all you only get to do that once.

Comments: Yep, I'm afraid to say it, but I'm still stuck here. I'm currently working for CRT, Inc. and working on getting my license to be an insurance agent. It's a pretty good job provided you don't mind people yelling at you a majority of the day. But it's well worth it as I get to come home to Jo's smiling face. My daughter is my reason for everything I do now. And I wouldn't trade my life with her for all the money in the world. I'm also looking at going back to school for criminal justice. But we shall see. And for those of you who are curious, no, I am not married.

Comments: Hey everyone! I'm now living in Omaha working for Lithia Ford selling cars. I've been married to Amy for a little over 2 1/2 years. I graduated from UNK in May of 2004 and majored in Park and Recreation Management. Amy and I spent some time out in Jackson, WY being ski bums and had a blast; I got in about 45 days of skiing this past winter! But, now it's back to real life. No kids yet but they probably are not too far off in the future.
