Last night Connor stopped by and we went out for beer and pizza. A welcome surprise which really lifted my spirits. This is something we must do more often. We discussed the possibility of having a regular Monday "staff meeting" at the pub with the ex-RAs. I think that'd be great.
Called Daniela in San Francisco for the first time in 6 months or so. Wonderful to catch up with her, and I'd like to do a better job at keeping in touch. She is a good friend and I miss her.
Speaking of which, I'm now IMing with Christopher, the first time I've been in touch with him since they moved to Madison almost three weeks ago. I wish I'd heard from him sooner (or at all-- I initiated our conversation). I feel a bit disposable. But I decided to step up to the plate and initiate rather than continue to simmer over why I never heard from him or Sara.
Life is still good.
