Everyone who said that grad school was a relationship killer was correct.

I’m okay, honestly. I really wasn’t happy with our situation for at least the last two months, and I know this is the right thing to do, for a huge variety of reasons, but ultimately it all comes down to us being in two very different places. I need more support, stability, and consistency than he is willing or able to provide, and that’s that.

I’m really sad, but I’m going to be okay in time, and honestly I’m more than a bit relieved. Tomorrow is my birthday, and it sucks to get dumped the day before but I’d rather it be now than just about any other time. At least I’ll be starting my 28th year with a clean slate.

Off to go get tacos, and then I will continue finishing off this sixer of beer.
