The soft gentle thud of the coffin lid settling into place really emphasized the finality of this moment. It didn’t help that, as is tradition, the priest had asked us to face away from the coffin before the lid was placed. We were allowed to enter the small holding room in the back for a…

Balancing Act

I did the math, and I think I’ll miss ~25% of Q4 days from work. In somewhat related news, my bank account is living paycheck to paycheck right now, in terms of reaching an equilibrium point of money in vs money out. No thanks to my having paid off almost 30k in expenses in Q3.…
