Sad Lagged

So I get back yesterday, all jet-lagged and out of my mind to find out a series of sad or unsettling news.

One of my best-friends is moving back to Maine, which is great and exciting for her but still sad. Not only will my personal life be poorer without her, but she carries a big load for Un-Scripted that will have to be redistributed.

My girlfriend’s room-mate is going to move in with her boyfriend by the end of the year. This means Diana will either have to find a room-mate or I’ll move in with her. It’s not that I don’t want to move in with her, I just don’t want to move into their place. Maybe they can get out of their lease and we can move into our own place. Although the timing is problematic if I go to grad school next fall. (This falls in the unsettling end of the news spectrum, not the sad end.)

Finally, I found out my Uncle passed away on Monday. My thoughts and feelings mirror closely those of my sister, which she expressed well in her blog. Part of me wants to go home for the funeral even though it would be massively expensive. Another part thinks that might be a bit strange. I’m not sure if any of the out of town nieces or nephews are going.

That’s a fine how do you do and welcome back to the states.

  1. Sorry to hear about your uncle. It's tough when you live far away.

    And sorry to hear about the person moving to Maine, who -- if it's who I think it is -- is gonna need six people to replace her.

    Hope things start looking up.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
