Yesterday I graduated from Tufts University, and as a (very) recent college grad, many people are concerned and curious about what I’m doing next.
Luckily, I landed a fellowship in Washington, D.C. for the summer, so I have a response. I sound fairly legitimate when I say I’ll be working for the US Department of Education, and then I tell people that I’ll see what happens after the summer is over.
But the truth, which I’ve been unwilling to share with many people for fear they won’t understand, is that I know what I’m doing when the summer is over, and I have known for a while.
For as long as I can afford it. Maybe even for as long as it takes to soothe my wanderlust, but that seems unlikely.
