I don’t wanna.
This week was a very strange one for me, as the students at Boston University began to move back into their dorms. The IT Help Center had it’s employees working some pretty crazy hours, so I was exhausted by the time the weekend came around. But the hours weren’t what I found hard about this week. It was watching as all the students returned back to campus, moving into their dorms and talking about their new school schedules. It was weird to me that every day after work, I was hopping on the train back to Eastie rather than going back to my apartment in South Campus. Instead of worrying about what books I needed to buy or where my classes were going to be, I spent all day in my office answering calls of students who couldn’t figure out how to connect to the internet (“So… it says ‘Terminate’ and ‘Connect’.

Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.
