How Would You Have it Then? – 4

Having witnessed Lynn lose all focus because of her infatuation with a boy, I learned a ‘life lesson.’  This ‘life lesson’ taught me that inter-personal relationships are distractions.  

I set about having dozens of  casual friends, becoming involved in many extra-curricula activities.  This prevented everyone and everything from  interfering in my ambition.

I went through school without a single real date.  There were get togethers and casual functions.  I’d pop in a bit late, or extra early with a bunch of friends, and leave within an hour or so.

My life, outside of Academia was a meaningless potpourri, like looking out the window of  speeding train and seeing the trees and towns pass by without making any connection.  

I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to be when I left school, so had all sorts of possibilities and alternatives.
