I’ve been blessed. I’m 26 and this is the first time I have lost someone close to me. Not everyone is that fortunate. But I’m still facing the learning curve.
I’m struggling to find the contours of grief while getting things done. Because I had to get through that Law Review election. And then I had to proctor my student’s exam. And today I had a job interview. And a part of realizes that I could have begged off of all those things, but they needed to get done.
People have been very kind and supportive.
But I still feel responsible.
The interview went well today. And more to the point, I got to interview for my replacement. That was fun. But now I get to go home and I am looking forward to that even more.
