I’m on an overnight bus to Boston for a full day training I’m doing tomorrow with UMass-Boston. She is five rows behind me on her phone. She’s talking loud enough for everyone to hear about how she’s sleeping with a married man that she’s had sex with everywhere from a train to Atlantic City, but it’s all done in private and she doesn’t want to be kept in the dark anymore. Oh, and she might already have a baby with him too. As I’m trying to fall asleep my mind is racing about my program tomorrow with 40 student leaders and my new idea I’m launching soon that will have a massive impact on co-curricular engagement.
We’re both riding the same bus to the same place, but it’s amazing how different we are choosing to utilize our limited time on this earth.
