I return to Waterloo tomorrow.
It’s too soon. I went to Waterloo yesterday to meet my USRA supervisor and pick up the keys to my apartment. Notwithstanding its entrepreneurial spirit, I realized just how much I dislike being there. There are too many memories; too much I’d rather forget.
Of course, my parents think I should simply “put it all aside” and focus; I see their point. It’s hard to explain however, that yes, the place I live in has an outsize impact on my mood, my performance etc. I guess it’s a flaw on my part.
