Sometimes I wonder if I should done my undergrad somewhere else, but then I remind myself that I met two of the best people I could ever meet while I was there. I met a friend who understands me better than just about anyone and a professor who was kind enough to act as an adviser and therapist for me, even though he was neither of those things.
I’m still in touch with my friend and talk to her often, because it isn’t weird to do that when you are friends and peers. But I am falling out of touch with my favorite professor because I don’t know how to maintain that relationship now that I am not a student. I really wish that I could take him with me to graduate school so that I could go into his office, talk things out, and feel validated in my choices and also like maybe I am smart and capable of good things after all.
