I'm in the Doha airport, waiting for my one-way flight to Pittsburgh. Ever since I printed our etickets, I've been flipping over the sheet of paper looking for the return flights; I can't quite get my mind around the idea that there aren't any.

I'm not a Qatari resident anymore. I'm also not a Carnegie Mellon employee anymore, which has hit me kind of unexpectedly hard. I think that this is the right thing to do -- we can't stay in Qatar forever, and with Justin finishing his doctorate and both of us transitioning to parenthood, I think this is the right time for a fresh start. But it's still really, really hard. I think these six years in Doha have probably been the happiest in my life.

Boarding. Next post should be from Pittsburgh!
