A Late Conversation of Respite

I had a pretty hard test today in VLSI and Advanced Digital Design, which ended at 6. I came home to relax. I wound up having three really different but difficult conversations online, at the same time. It taxed me, and even though it’s late I needed someone else to talk to.

I found a friend on Facebook chat who I used to play music with, but who got wise and left Tech after a year even though he was on a football scholarship. Like magick, he had this to say:

Preston

kind of random here, but are you happy you left tech

2:11amMyFriend

definitely

im not psyched about having left school

but tech was not for me at all

2:12amPreston

so even the negativity of leaving school was outweighed by the positivity of leaving Tech

2:12amMyFriend

not the way i was experiencing it anyways

outweighed idk

it was a tradeoff

i mean the last 3 years havent been a walk in the park

but at least im able to be what i want

2:13amPreston

true that man

2:13amMyFriend

why do u ask?

2:13amPreston

looking back on all of this I’m just so tired, I feel like there’s a lot of life I’ve wasted

2:14amMyFriend

ya i mean everybody has there regrets

hindsight is 2020

2:14amPreston

at the same time though it has shaped me and will enable me to do a bunch of good stuff

but, this is my youth

2:15amMyFriend

ya i hear u

i mean are you 23 at this point?

2:15amPreston

will be in Feb

2:15amMyFriend

ya idk

dont stress about youth

were still young

2:16amPreston

I needed to hear that

2:16amMyFriend

i kind of get that way sometimes but it seems to me that it just sort of perpetuates it

stressing about not taking advantage of whatever though

you just miss the next thing if you do that

And there is my night.
