Tilt

Bye Betty



I was supposed to do all these things yesterday. Instead, I went for a walk; cleaned up my pad; did some laundry; read some magazines; even cleaned out the fish tank.

Felt normal again - well, as normal as I get.

KG Betty is on a plane but we had a long talk before she left. She said she might visit Germany but she'd never move back. Her friends are all over the world now; home isn't home any more.

Like me, she's working her way through the world.

In 2002, I was supposed to attend the University of Dresden for a graduate program in Chinese Political Science and Law (I'm geek, what can I say).

But then I met this chick...

Ultimately, our lives are just strings of choices we make, like those Choose Your Own Adventure books from childhood.

I think I got off schedule somewhere between Chapters Three and Four.

But it's been hella fun.

Well, Hello Weekend!
