In Defense of Just Hanging Out

A bunch of us from the old section got together last night at a local sushi joint. It was great to see everyone who made it out and of course it had been far too long since the last time we did it. Evening students in particular are acutely aware of the extravagance of ‘wasting’ time. We become time-hoarders, racing from work to class, waking up early, staying up late, holing up with our casebooks at lunch and turning our commutes in to sum and substance study sessions. As closely as we watch time, I’m nevertheless amazed to realize how quickly the past two years has gone by. A word, then, on what is worth spending time on, in my humble opinion.

Soon enough we’ll be thrust out into the wider marketplace. We’ll no longer run into each other in class or in the commons, we’ll have to be deliberate about making time to see each other or we simply won’t. I miss seeing these people when they’re not around. It’s silly, of course, to compare sections, but I feel lucky to have ended up in the one I did.
