Bittersweet Life

A way to make Ben happy:

Tell him that his friend Suyin in med school just passed her boards!  Yay!

A way to make Ben sad:

Inform him that he failed the Foreign Service Written Exam. (*quiet sobs*)

A way to make Ben happy:

Buying tickets to come home for a vacation when he damn well feels like it, instead of having to wait around for the Foreign Service.  Yay! When the dates are set, he’ll let everyone know.  Double yay!

A way to make Ben sad:

Figuring out that he has once again spent an entire post referring to himself in the third person!  Why does he do that?! (*disgusted snorts*)

    Yeah, let us know when you come back. A lot is happening… but nothing at the same time 🙂

    Well maybe you can stole away in Jenn’s suite case when she goes there in late August?

    Good idea. Jenn, bring a really big suitcase!

    Aww,that post was quite cute. I’m on my bouts of cruising random blogs, as all anxious new users usually do.

    I have the same problem, of writing in the third person. Its quite vexing.
