I think by far the hardest thing about doing the College Program that I wasn’t quite able to place into words during my last one, and especially during this one because it’s longer, is the lack of alone time and independence.
I’m a very independent person and am introvert. I have almost zero alone time between the packed buses, the people in the parks, the people at work, people in the apartment complex, and my four roommates in our tiny apartment, two of which also live in my very tiny room. I mean I love (most) of my roommates, but I really need time to myself but it’s hard to explain to your friends that you live with that you don’t want to talk to them for a while without offending people and sounding like a jerk.
It’s also really difficult because I don’t have a car so I either have to bum rides off of other people to go places or take the packed buses everywhere and I’m so used to being able to drive myself everywhere whenever I want.
I’ve just been here for almost 5 months and I’m tired.
The dcp is hard for introverts, that’s my advice for the day.
I was born in the wrong generation. This generation is still racist as fuck and I can’t download a pizza. Wake me up in the year 3019.
*Update from the year 3000* not much has changed but we live underwater
How’s my great-great-great-granddaughter?
She’s doin’ fine
