David: The Unpleasant Truth

It’d been fifteen years since I’d set foot on campus. Finally coming back to complete my doctorate filled me with excitement and dread. What if I couldn’t think like that anymore? What if my brain had calcified over those years in industry, rendering me incapable of learning anything new? What if my research project failed?

Warily, I set one foot in front of the other and entered the quad. Children were throwing Frisbees and lying in the sun, staving off skin cancer by sheer force of youth. I didn’t belong here.

Damn those fools at the Institute for being right.
