I ran into an alumni on the subway the other day. It was so exciting to me because that hasn’t happened yet, at that point, to me. It gave me comfort because I got to see someone who graduated a few years back and is still doing what he went there to do. It was also fun because we just got to catch up with one another after a few years of not seeing each other. Unfortunately our conversation was only able to be as long as our wait for either one of our trains to get there. His train arrived, off he went on his journey, and off I went on mine. In the same city, pursuing the same things, in different directions.
