on sunday, i graduated from Connecticut College.

on monday, my grandfather died.

it's been a strange and busy week. everyone keeps saying "congratulations, i'm so sorry."

i don't have much internet access right now but i hope to be in a new place with internet capabilities soon. that's why i didn't post for you on tuesday, dave! until then, phone is the best way to contact me.

xoxoxoxoxo to you all.

A lot of my friends seem to be losing Grandfathers lately. I almost lost mine a couple days ago too, but we got lucky. I'm really sorry, but I do hope I'll get to talk to you (and maybe even see you) sometime soon.

brandon and i were just discussing how we need to see you in the near future, whether you come here or we go there. it may have to wait until i'm done looking for apartments though. hope your grandfather is all right as well.

both my grandmother and my great-aunt were dying of cancer at the same time. my great-aunt passed away on a Monday. that evening my sister, myself, and a couple friends watched the night skies turn into an ocean of lights as the northern lights played. we didn't want to tell my grandmother that her sister had died because we were afraid of her condition. but the thing is, my grandmother insisted that her sister had come to visit her in her room. my grandmother was here in Calgary and my great-aunt had been in Chile. My grandmother passed away the thursday morning of that same week. She knew.

death is a strange veil. keep the Eye open, even through the pain, its rather amazing what comes through.

a week before her grandfather died my grandmother started calling me at work and telling me about all of her friends dying, a lot of them by botched surgery. she is worried cause she has a pretty serious operation in june.

yesterday she called and said that my step-grandfather's daughter tried to kill her husband with a knife. two days ago my friend evelyn's ex husband was given 3 to 8 weeks to live. he's had cancer for some time...

My grandfather went to the hospital on Thursday for a large build-up of blood in his head as a result of a stroke he had back in December which had gotten to the point that he couldn't even speak or recognize objects anymore. He's better for the moment, but I am pretty worried about his situation.

Another one of my LJ friends' grandfathers died last weekend. It seems to be going around.
