Farewell to All That

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

My last day. Suddenly hot, as though to impress upon me that May is for flowering and breaking up and moving on and graduating and leaving behind. I tidied shelves and helped customers choose gifts. I'll work a Saturday once in a while, for a while, but now Cody's is like my old apartments on Dwight and Shattuck and 63rd; I wonder what it will be like to go in as a customer now. The nostalgia I've built up from fully living in this town for five years oppresses me as much as the heat.

San Francisco will be colder.
