It Was Nice Knowing You All

Oil shot up $5 to almost $140 per barrel today, which increases the likelihood that I will never be able to afford a flight back to the US and will only see everyone in Fargo when I can afford to row across the Atlantic and walk from the East Coast. (I was going to try to go back to Fargo at the end of September, and it turns out that that costs just about as much as it did to book my roundtrip flight to the Philippines. I just keep reminding myself that they do pay for me to fly home at the end of this fellowship, so I'll theoretically get back to the US. It just might be years from now.)
