is it vocation or vacation?
In the middle of an extremely minor identity crisis.
I’m starting to wonder about things that I never wondered when I was a student. Students don’t have identity crises, do they? They all know who they are, especially as they’re surrounded by more of the same.
A rough job description: Students study, they take classes, take notes until their penmanship is shot; they schlep books around, they drink too much coffee, they occasionally procrastinate, they watch movies on the weekends, they watch movies when they should be studying, they eat entirely too much ramen. They wear what’s comfortable, they have meaningful discussions about politics and social justice until one a.m., and they check email incessantly. Fair enough?
