Cusp of Vacation

what a horrible few weeks i've had. really, really bad. things are looking up though, i ran away from la and escaped to tahoe this past weekend. thanks to magi for being an awesome friend/wingman and coming with me. i would have freaked out if i had to stay in la and rot. salvation came from making the 7-9 hour drive to tahoe from la to see an old friend from pittsburgh, devore.

now, i'm just getting through work for one more day and then heading east on a big metal bird to be with my family in pittsburgh for turkey day! with all the havoc life has been lately, these short breaks from work/la/rat race/life couldn't have come at a better time! and i'm truly grateful, or is it thankful! :)

i know people can't wait to have time off, but i feel like i really, really can't wait! and i can't wait to people watch/get drunk at LAX tomorrow.

Something horrible happened last night...

My boss and good friend Matthew passed away last night. It was a long battle which ended with him spending 10 days in the hospital, before he let go last night just before midnight. I'm consider myself lucky to have visit him on Wednesday after work. This blog post or any amount of words will do him justice, but since I have spent this whole day alone I felt I needed an outlet.

I knew the end was near, but yet was still taken back by the text message that delivered the news when I checked my phone. I spoke with a coworker soon after and towards the end of the call said, "what am I suppose to do?". And all day I've been trying to figure that out. My mind hasn't been filled with just a montage of thoughts like this in awhile. And nothing can distract it.

I'm going to miss him so much, as we all will! But I'm glad his pain is gone.

Here I am

I'm sitting in the office of one of my company's VPs waiting for my 11am meeting to start.

He continues to take phone calls and have long conversations while I'm sitting here. And mouthing to me "sorry". Thank god I brought my blackberry in and for the Snake talking to me on text messages.

Now he's slamming his assistant and the economy. Waste of time...
