I picked up Penny from work for the last time today… that’s right, she’s bid her adieu and left work at the University at Buffalo for good. For the past few years, we happen to work in the same building (see background), just different floors, which made life pretty easy for us. To cherish the moment, I got her some pink roses, then we headed off to a summer BBQ with our friends in the evening (See slideshow).
Since Penny will be heading back to Singapore soon, we’re heading to Chicago tomorrow for our vacation. She loves shopping and I’ll be accompanying her to The Magnificent Mile for a major portion of the trip. We also hope to meet up some friends there and check out some the Chicago museums together.
In about a month’s time, it’ll be a long distance relationship for us once again. Being on opposite ends of the world makes life screwy, where her morning will be my night, and vice versa. Once I get my academic work done and graduate out of here, we’ll figure out where to continue our lives… be it in Singapore or the United States. Both places have their merits and we’re both pretty flexible. If anyone knows job openings for an experienced graphic designer and a blogging geek, let us know.
The future isn’t set in stone, but I do hope for our relationship to be real soon.
