April 18th, 2004-Camille, aged 21, a university student in Montreal, Canada

Today at noon, I put my boyfriend on a bus back to his home, which is 7 hours drive away and in a completely different country. I've done this countless times over the past 2 years, but this time was different. This time was the last time I'm going to have to do this. He will never come back to Montreal to see me, and I'll never have to make the 3-bus trek down to see him. This is because in 2 weeks, I am going to be finished with university, and I am going to go back to my home, in Vancouver, which is on the opposite side of the continent.
Today's goodbye scene was also different for another reason: he came up with his bag and his backpack, but he left with the bag, the backpack, and a cardboard box. The box contained some of my sweaters, towels, t-shirts and Tupperware, a couple of books, mittens, and my beloved red polka-dotted teapot. Why did he take my teapot? Because as soon as we can afford it, we're going to both move to Boston and live there. Together. After 2 years, finally, something concrete. I gave him my things, and I won't see them again until we're together again. And then they won't be my things
anymore, but our things.
Now he's driving home, and I'm going to go study for my next final exam, but I don't think I'll be able to concentrate on Shakespeare today, because my future just poked its head into my life and winked at me, and now it's going to be real.

When roulette betting one should always keep in mind that it is all about luck and he might as well loose all his life savings, so one should always be prepared to the worst to happen.
