Got the sister graduated and moved back home (temporarily)(according to her). Was prepared for the frustration of packing and shipping all of her shit (and there was a LOT of it), but not for all the capital-F Feelings brought up by flashing back to my own college graduation, how mentally and emotionally exhausted I was, how ready to get the hell out of Dodge and therefore how much I took for granted that I can never get back. Cannot work on processing these Feelings, however, until Tuesday afternoon, when I am finished tutoring. Like, for good. I love it, and I feel like I finally started to connect with the kids, but I just can't seem to get enough hours to make a real job out of it right now. I do have other plans, upon which I'll elaborate soon, but for right now: books.

Oh, and I'm rereading Owen Meany now, because I couldn't not.
