The last few days have really been a reminder of how wonderful the people in my life are. On Wednesday I got home from work to find that Paul had sent me a package! It contained, of all things, gummy bacon! I had never seen gummy bacon before, but it made me so happy. He really likes bacon (we had planned festivities for our own "international bacon month" but he moved away before we could execute them) and both of us love all things gummy. It was just a really perfect gift.
Then last night I had dinner with Jonathan, who is a friend from college. He's a grad student at Brown, but we don't see each other nearly as often as we should. It was so nice to have dinner with him and catch up... The wonderful thing about old friends is that they already know the back-story to everything. Jonathan knows my family, and my friends from college, and all about my life before MIT. Since many of the people that I was really close to in Boston moved away recently, this fall I have spent a lot of time building new friendships -- which is totally fun, but it was nice to spend some time with someone who already knows everything about me... Yay for old friends!
