It has been an eventful few weeks since I last posted.
Inside the Uni, we have completed our structural reorganization. There were a few surprises (seriously, who would have thought Sabre would ask to be DirLog!) and a few challenges, but all in all, we are already beginning to see the benefits of the new more streamlined structure. More classes, more new students, more new events. It's all good!
In RL, things are full of angst at the moment. My job situation is in flux and I'll most likely be looking for something new shortly.
We put my new son-in-law on an airplane headed to Iraq at Zero Dark Thirty this morning. It was the hardest thing I've been involved in since my Father's death 30+ years ago. It was a surreal event. The 25 or so Soldiers that were part of this movement were all so young. I've always thought it was trite to read comments about units heading out where the observer remarks "They were all just kids..." Changed my mind. It's not trite, it's the truth.
