I’m feeling sad this morning. I went online to see the grade I received on my Astronomy exam and realized I had an unread message from our instructor.

His cancer is back and he won’t be able to teach for a while. He said he hopes he will have the opportunity to come back by the end of the year. He also said, “Do well and make me proud”. That part made me cry.

I’m going to miss his excitement for astronomy. I’m going to miss his tangents to questions like, “Do you believe in aliens?”. Get better Mr. H!
