Gary's wife is Ukrainian, and they've been together since before the Iron Curtain fell, so this thing has got him really worked up for obvious reasons and they aren't exactly pro-Russia. I just kind of let him rant, because I know he's seen what life is like on the other side, so to speak. Which is a pity, because they are two of the sweetest folks I know as long as you don't bring up the Communist and Socialist words. I don't know if "shell-shocked" is the correct term or what, but honestly, not worth arguing with him, he's going to believe what he wants.  :|

I audibly sucked air through my teeth and winced.

Because every single one of us who have ever lost a nail, know EXACTLY how he felt at that moment.

When one of my best friends blew his brains out in 2004 because his girlfriend said no to his proposal (see also: laughed in his face,) I didn't react with empathy or sadness, I reacted with anger. In fact, I think the first thing I said when my mom told me what happened was, "I'm gonna kill him!" despite it being, well, too late for that. Another friend from high school did suffer from depression for years before he finally succeeded with suicide. That...that was a little less harsh feeling, imo. Because he did seek help, and his friends were always there for him. It made me feel terrible, though, terrible in that there was no way I could have saved him. He made up his choice years before he finally did it, he just hid it well.

We just bought an epic plaid couch. It's so full of awful and wonderment, and it will fit in with our Early Disaster interior design theme. It was $40 at Salvation Army, normally I cringe at 2nd hand furniture, but it's spotlessly clean, and a LaZBoy. It looks like it was never used.

He also got me one of these:

That's a classic White rotary, it's strong enough to go through leather and in mint condition with all the attachments...$15.

Veterans Services just contacted me from UNH, in-state tuition is being granted. :banana:

A very merry unmarriage to you?

...That sounds terrible. There is no way to make that sound okay at all.

Best of luck, dude.

So apparently military spouses are eligible for in-state tuition and nobody told me until, oh, just now. I just may be able to save myself $5k a year. That would be HUGE. I'm still going to go forth with my NH state residency anyway so RI doesn't chase me for taxes, but this is great news.

The gist I got is that it's a small movement, not the actual government, but again, reading on the phone and a bit distracted and in transit at the moment. Maybe Cain can give more insight.

Well, then.

I can't really think of anything to say, other than, um, ow.

So I get to campus, and the professor I need to speak with isn't even in his office. Ugh. However, I can tell that he is a man of distinction, as he has a fake mustache tacked on his door.

Meeting with the history department today at UNH to discuss funding my education with some free monies. I'm a bit nervous. It's cold outside, and I have to take public transportation, so I'm not really "dressing up" but trying to not look like a slob, either. I guess I should put makeup on at the very least. Not that I feel I need it because I never really wear it even in my 30s, but um...I'm in my 30s, I should probably look like I tried to be put together for this.

I will be in on Thursday, so that sounds promising.

Shit, that's right. I would trust him. Hopefully he'll see this.
