I'm trying to concentrate on thesis writing, and my best friend is too busy for a phone call right now, but I just need to share this somewhere. I've posted a little bit about off and on guy problems before but... It looks like we're working things out, and taking things slowly in a really positive direction. I'm really, really relieved, and really excited. Yay!!! Now back to my regularly scheduled program of a soul-crushing amount of work.
