First time back to campus in 10 years. A true dream come true to reach the point of my young career that I have something of substance to impart. There is so much more I want to do and learn and teaching and mentoring is a part of that. It was incredibly gratifying to speak with the kids and share practical advice and (I hope) some inspiration. On a selfish level it was good opportunity for me to practice and develop teaching and public speaking skills. I have a long way to go, but am psyched to have gotten my feet wet.
Now, at long last, my vacation commences. Woo hoo!
