Dear Bora,

My first year of not being a student was my first year of teaching. It was pretty much hell, so I didn't even notice the whole "not being a student for the first time in my life thing." I imagine next year will be a lot like that for you. After grad school, I had another year of not being a student and I was like, "Hey, I can volunteer for that." And I volunteered for a lot of things until I was like, "Hey, I kind of want to sleep." So now I'm like, "Hey, um, can I get off this committee?" and it's not going so well. I think you'll find things to occupy your time because people like you and me, we kind of get off on being overwhelmed.

Love,
Kate
