Some of you have been asking me why I have not worked on the forum whodunnit story in the last couple days. To answer your questions, A. I have been busy, and B. one of the ghosts from my past has returned to haunt me. Literally.
When I was in high school, I had a brief crush on a girl, went to several classes with her, etc. She didn't reciprocate so not much ever came of it, but I had fond memories of her. Fast forward 2 years. I'm in college now, down in Arizona, when I see on the news, Katie (her first name, if you are truly curious you can probably look up the story) then Portland State University student, was found murdered in her appartment. No suspects, no arrests, nothing.
Now fast forward another 2 years. An arrest is made. turns out it was some turkish @#%^hole that fled the country after the murder, and they have been waiting for him to come back ever since. It looks like they have enough evidence to fry him, which is all well and good in my oppinion. I'd shoot him myself if they would let me.
I'm finding that this is affecting me more than I would have immagined. being an intelligence analyst, I know how @#%^ed up the turkish culture is, but still I find myself feeling something close to hatred and lotheing for the entire country right now. Intellectually I know that they are not all bad, and that there are probably some very nice, well adusted turkish people out there, but I find myself wanting to ignore that entirely.
The whole sitation is just strange. I don't know what to think anymore.
Sorry. just needed to post that. ignore me.
