So another relationship in my life is in the process of ending. Against
all reason, sanity and advice, (I knew he was leaving for Arizona or that
there was a 98% chance of it) I became attatched emotionally.

So I am left not bitter just tired of this whole meeting people, emotional
ties, finding a compatible person and then having them yank away. 

It is just an emptiness right now. 

From what I have observed from my male friends, though, this is exactly
the climate required to learn Linux. Without a full and happy lovelife or
distraction of soft lips and a reason to kiss them, there is enough room
to grasp the intricacies and nuances of such a fine operating system.

It has already begun to happen. As I walk down the street I am not
thinking of emptiness, kising, nathan or any other previous SO's, I am
thinking of penguins, rm -rf / and lilo.

I am already convinved that linux will dull the pain better than heroin.
