I am partnered to the most amazing woman ever. She has completed collecting all data for her PhD dissertation, been accepted to her 1 year internship next year, taught three classes (or more) a week for a couple of years now, designed one of them and developed the syllabus herself (no textbook exists, so she’ll just write it herself and, oh might as well submit it to McGraw-Hill) learned to quilt (by dreaming about it), learned HTML to help with our website, birthed two not-tiny kids, learned to make candy (not the easy shit either), helped me immeasurably to cope with depression, and managed to stay in love with me even when I make it hard.

Life is mad. Life is hard. Life is a struggle. Life can be incredibly sad.

But without J…life would be pointless.

What a superstar, truly.
