Haven’t had time to…

Haven't had time to start the Matthews yet -- busy with Maiden Voyage stuff. Still behind on sending out letters, by quite a bit. Going to try to plow through this weekend...it takes a lot longer to send out personalized letters than one would think. A few people have written and thanked me for writing such nice rejection letters, though, which certainly helps motivate me to do so. It's not actually that hard to be nice -- I got a lot of really good stories, and even the ones I'm not taking ought to be publishable somewhere (most of them, at any rate).

It's strange being in Chicago again. Every time I come back it seems like fewer of my real friends are here. Even people who I wasn't particularly close to but who seemed a part of my life here are missed... I think that after this June, when both Bryan and Kevin graduate and leave, I'm going to have little reason to come back. There's only so long that I can keep coming to the math department teas...

The ending of an era. :-/ Ah well.. I think I'm taking myself too seriously again. I better get back to work...that's the only sure cure for the blues.
