You wiped the sweat off your brow as you ran, you feet pounding the pavement in a steady rhythm. You were out of shape, a semester off of the track team had left you a little soft. You were pushing yourself to get back to normal, already on the 6th lap around the track. Your muscles ached and burned but you kept going, your eyes drifting longingly to the bench with your things on it.

Your brow furrowed as you tried to focus on your breathing, your ponytail swinging behind you as you kept your steady pace. You heard yelling and turned your head to watch the lacrosse team practicing on the field. Your eyes searched for the jersey number you wanted to see, spying number 24 sitting on the bench on the sidelines looking thoroughly bored. You were surprised to see him watching you, and you blushed, smiling shyly. He lifted his hand and wiggled his fingers in your direction.

my mom just asked me how I’m gonna pay for my textbooks for next semester and I just started laughing hysterically bc I’ve been so focused on getting gas and not being able to buy ppl presents that I totally forgot how I’m gonna do that

As much as it sucks to have more humble facilities at a small private college, I am VERY thankful for how close I’ve been able to get with my professors. More than anything, the mentorship I’ve gotten from my professors has been so valuable to me. I don’t think I would have pursued physics if it weren’t for my physics major and research advisors encouraging me every step of the way.

At my lowest point, I was talking to my research advisor about how I wasn’t sure I’d be a good physicist because I struggled in one of his classes (a class I think I deserved to fail). But he insisted that I would be. And the look in his eyes suggested that he meant it. He vaguely shared a story of his own struggle, where he had to take a semester off from grad school, and the fact that he was willing to share that with me meant a lot to me. And it gave me hope.

My physics major advisor is the reason I added a physics major. His general physics classes were so inspiring and interesting that I couldn’t help but develop a love for the subject. It planted the seed for me to discover what I love about physics on my own, even when I was struggling in that one class. So much so that, before I even finished it, my minor became a major. He’s never told me I couldn’t do something, supporting me every step of the way.

I’m also thankful that there are so few people in my physics class (6). Because we all know each other. We’re close. And we all face the struggle together. The experience is very different from that of my chemistry major, because although everyone knows everyone, we didn’t share that same closeness.

I actually chose my college slightly haphazardly. I didn’t have a place I really wanted to go. But my intuition told me I’d like my college. And it wasn’t wrong. Even though my college may be more humble than the big fancy universities out there, I will never regret my decision to go here.

Elide was given the rest of the semester off, and she didn’t want to tell Vernon. Asterin and Manon had no problem with her staying in the apartment, but it meant that she had nothing to do most days. She only worked a few hours a week at a dance studio in town. She had been teaching the younger kids, but it was a little harder to do with a broken ankle, so she’d resorted to merely cleaning up. Ms. Kathy had been incredibly kind and told her not to worry. She still paid her the same amount for a lesser job. Elide couldn’t have been more grateful.
