In a repeat of the university-term proper, I’m unable to make it out to an event with my friends.
It would have been great to see Jeff, Mike, Teehan, Scott, Nino et. al. before the end of term. But yet again, I’m unsurprised that I can’t. This term I’ve had to say “No.” to too many friends. It’s always this project, or that assignment or some exam.
You wish that the stuff you’re giving up – heck – the life you’re giving up is worth it in the end.
