Describing how Robin Williams was a part of the landscape of your life is almost impossible, isn’t it? He was everywhere. Hilarious, heartbreaking, so talented it’s a fucking tragedy we ever spent any time not appreciating him. It’s strange to say, but I’m looking forward to seeing what other people remember him for, for the things I never considered and finding work I somehow missed. It sucks it’s going to be for this reason. I’m so sorry for him and for his family and friends that it’s going to be for this reason.
Earlier this year, I finally sucked it up and enrolled in college again.
The last time I was in school was in 2007 or so. After many years of stop-and-start enrollment, I was mostly spinning my wheels. My major had changed several times. And, of course, I didn’t actually know what I wanted to do for a living at all. Working retail forever wasn’t it, so the first step was the jump to working in an office while going to school part-time.
