Fantastic writing. I have no idea how this made it on to Hacker News, but I'm so glad it did.

I enjoyed reading this one.
This story touched me...the taking a hit and turning it into self growth was cool...it reminded me of the elasticity of youth...you can learn languages, you can change yourself...your being is being written as you go. I kept wondering if maybe the girlfriend had some hidden secret plan hoping Roberta would read the list and react in various ways...
