Today was Match Day.
#2. University of Washington, Seattle.
This was the worst possible outcome for me, since it will be very difficult to visit her over the year she's gone. And I fucking hate Seattle anyway, so there will really be only one reason to go, unlike the other possible internship locations. This one also starts six weeks earlier, on the first of July. That's not so bad, because it means it finishes six weeks earlier as well.
On top of the bad location news, the whole matching thing has lent a much more imminent tone to the whole year-apart idea. I've been thinking about it all day and not getting much work done.
Hope my friends are ready for a little leaning-on.
