    I wouldn’t want to be me as a freshman again (lived at home, worked full-time, took care of brother and sick mom, generally crazy, too-responsible life), but sometimes I think it would be nice to have the freedom our more traditional, coddled on-campus freshman do. But I while I didn’t have that experience, I had others that made me pretty self-sufficient.

    Probably not what you were going for, but you got me thinking.

    Actually, it sort of is… I was never a “traditional student” per se either. So I had this moment of feeling sorry for myself — man, I wish I knew what it was like to live in the dorms and have mom & dad pay for everything — but actually, you know what? No. No, I don’t.

    I guess it was mostly the kind of scared tentative way they are going around campus. It makes me feel alright to walk and act like I know where I am going (metaphorically, literally).

    I guess we were thinking the same thing. Yeah, I look at our freshmen sometimes and wonder how they survived this long because they’re so very clueless. Tentative is a good word for it.

    1. Amen.

    2. I wasn’t traditional either, and I didn’t get anything like a “college experience” until grad school # 1, which probably wasn’t the best time to be having it.

    So much word.

    And I say that as someone who was a traditional student complete with trust-funded living allowance.

    Thanks! took it on one of his “Pagans with Guns” days. I like it cause I’m not readily identifiable, but it’s got the “LIBRARY” jacket mostly visible. (And yes, that is an AK-47, though I’m not good enough to shoot it from the hip the way he does.)
