This semester is kind of bumming me out… not because it sucked, but because it is coming to a close. I’ve met and gotten to know some really amazing folks and I’m sorry to be leaving.
I really wish everyone the best of luck, and please, don’t be a stranger. I love hearing from people and chatting, so stay in touch. And I know that I am putting this in the wrong place; that this only really applies to ~15 or so of you, but I really mean it (and it applies to a smaller percentage of my facebook friends).
And to the rest of you, if you’re actually reading this, I would also be delighted to chat with any one of you, so feel free to drop me a message sometime.
Why am I so afraid of judgement? Why am I so stuck in societal norms?
Whenever I say “I can’t,” I like to double check myself, and start asking “why can’t you?” and my answer is getting weaker and weaker. “Because that would be weird” is nothing but a bad excuse. Find a better answer.
Find better answers.
And listen to your heart.
Also, congrats on turning down your NIH internship offer. You don’t want to work in IT. Do what you love. Follow your heart.
