Just about a half hour ago…

…after not having seen Patrick in about two weeks, he stopped into the library’s Technology Center wearing his backpack, talked to a couple coworkers at their front desk, then waved at a young woman who was sitting at the computer station across from me, then went over and talked to her in a quiet voice.

From what I could gather, it seemed like he was waiting for her to finish up whatever she was working on, and then they were going to go somewhere together. He picked up a piece of luggage (or maybe it was a duffel bag) from the floor next to her… I can’t recall him walking in with it, and am thinking maybe it was something she already had with her, but I’m not at all sure.

Is she his girlfriend?

I’m a bit bummed at the moment. Of course, I could’ve totally misinterpreted what was going on.
