The other day, while preparing dinner for me and my friend M., I couldn't believe the words that came out of my mouth; "I feel like I'm regressing. I feel like I'm in undergrad again. All this angst. All this soul searching. I think its because I'm far away from home and there's no one to worry about but me. Maybe its the whole university environment I'm in."
A few seconds later I caught myself. I've never left the damn university setting. Albeit for the past four years I played the role of teacher instead of student. Huge difference.
