More random stuff...

o I bought a blue linen dress shirt for my interview in Hawaii-Hilo next Thursday from Thomas Pink today. It's the first time I've ever spent an insane amount of money on a piece of clothing, but this is my pre-birthday gift to myself/pre-congratulations (hopefully) for pharmacy school. And it looks really good on me. *sigh*

o I'm looking forward to going to Hawaii next week. I haven't been there since 2004, and it'll be fun exploring the Big Island (hopefully I'll get to get Kona coffee in Kona, and the husband specifically requested me taking pictures of the volcanoes there). I'm also going to Honolulu and spend it with good friends that I haven't seen in a long time. And I want a tan line. Is that too much to ask? I also should really start seeing if living on the Big Island is something that I can actually do...

o Hung out with the ex today as he had an interview in the East Bay. Considering that I hadn't seen him in a few years, it shocked me how much he had aged in such a short amount of time, and yet he seemed to be the same personality-wise, which....was just very odd to me. There's always been this simmering angry quality to him, which thankfully he has never used on me, but at the same time makes him very hard to understand. Guess that's why he's an ex.

o Wished the husband a happy Valentine's day and anniversary yesterday. I felt twinges of sadness when I realized that we weren't together, but considering that his life seems to be taking a turn for the better (getting a new job, and considering his future plans up in Seattle), it's nice to know that he's doing all right. I still miss him.

o I saw my dad earlier this week for the first time in a few months. It was a good visit, particularly since I hadn't had a chance to talk to him about things, and I got to see pictures of his kid, which is still a bit disconcerting, but I had to get over it.

I was telling him about going to pharmacy school and my concerns of having to move to Hawaii, he said, "Just go to UCSF. It shouldn't be that hard, should it?"


If only I had as much faith in me as he does!
