Time away

Hi, everyone. I probably won’t update here much, if at all, for the next week. I’m out of town on a trip I’ve been planning for months with the bittersweet intention of spending time with my two surviving grandparents very likely for the last time. Unfortunately, it turned out to be too late; as I was boarding the plane, I received word that my grandmother had unexpectedly passed away. I’m pretty devastated to have missed her by a matter of hours, and I’m deeply frustrated that I let work obligations repeatedly delay a trip I intended to take months ago.

I have a lot of things to do over the next few days that seem more important than writing about video games and music and watches. You do, too. You need to tell the people you love how important they are to you. Because you never know when you’re going to just barely miss your last chance.
