I’m a degenerate too, you know? I have my ups and downs like anyone. All I can do is be me. I really can’t tell you what the hell I was doing before I had kids, just wasting time. I think I was pretty reckless and definitely a bit out of control. Now I’m more focused. I probably love myself more and take care of myself more because I want to stick around.
Do you have any adivce about talking to professors? Like how formal/informal you should be, what is appropriate etc ( I have pretty severe social anxiety and tend to avoid profs, even emailing, but I'm going to have to approach someone about doing an honors thesis soon and ahhhhh D: )
