I wait for my roommate in my car, as she drops off some groceries at a friend’s dorm. She runs back to the car, & a nearby first year boy asks “Is everything ok? You were running.” His gesture was pleasantly comforting, especially with what our community has been through recently.
I bought my first pair of dress slacks & black heels. I don’t know how I’ve managed twenty years without one of those two basics, but the fact that they fit me wonderfully makes me really happy. Until now, I couldn’t fathom myself as a young professional.
Despite the many times she has pissed me off, days like today remind me how lucky I am to have found my roommate back in 2012. While she may not be the coolest, nor the most stylish (bless her soul), I am so grateful.

My lab goggle left imprints on my face for 5+ hours. I went shopping looking that way.
There is a large Asian demographic on my street. The bus stop this morning was crowded with them. The black student & I were the ones that looked/felt out of place.
take a hint.
