Some days, it seems like despite all this, I haven’t left Northwestern. I still talk mostly to people either in Evanston or that I know from school.
I actually conducted an argument via IM between two people that were sitting four feet apart, 2,000 miles away from me.
I’ve spent most of the last few days fighting with my computer (to varying degrees of success), so I’m still somewhat surprised when I leave and see palm trees outside.
I’ve also been mostly sitting around and looking for a job, and fucking around on the internet when not looking for a job or fighting with my computer. Essentially, doing what I was doing back in Evanston, except featuring less human interaction.
Some days I question the wisdom of moving away from 98% of my friends, but I know, in the end, I need to be here. This is a place I can get a job doing what I want to do, or at least assisting with what I want to do.
Until then, however, I guess it’s just gonna be a little weird for a while.
