This is post #1000


On May 20, 2005, I started the blog with these immortal words:

So I'm grading papers again.
Ah, it seems like yesterday. Actually it seems like my life hasn't moved forward at all, because I've got a monster stack of grading sitting here waiting to be taken care of tonight.

In reality, many things of life-shaking import have happened to me in that time. I've broken up with a very long-term girlfriend. I've decided to attempt to get my PhD and eventually ended up here at USU's PhD program, but I imagine if you were to take anyone's span of nearly two years, you'd get pretty similar stuff. I'm not particularly unique or interesting, and thus my life is the perfect fodder for a blog. In fact, based on that criteria, I should probably start a webcast. Alas, I haven't been writing (or reading) blogs much lately, but I shall endeavor to correct these failings in the future.

So, that's all the navel-gazing I've got time for today. Thanks to all who drop by and double thanks to all who drop by and comment on my ramblings. In some sense, it's odd to be so pleased to get to know so many people who, for all I know, could be very advanced Eliza-bots. If you don't tell me, I'd be shattered. That's not true really. Regardless of who or what you are, I'm extremely happy to host you all here at my little niche of the intertubes.

Happy 1000th post!

Hey, did you tell us the story of the breaking up of the relationship? If you did, how did I miss it? If not, spill! I'm nosy! Or email me to tell me that it's none of my damn business.

Thanks for the Happy!

The breakup. Well, I did mention it briefly. It was a while ago. I'm not sure how much exactly I want to get into it, as I'm still not sure what I think about the whole thing, and I believe that she still reads the blog occasionally. On the other hand, maybe it would be good to do a postmortem sometime. I'll think about it and maybe get back to everyone :)

Either way... I mean, I'm curious, but I get that you need privacy. :) I guess... :)
