Usually I am excited about going home to Wisconsin, and I am always excited about going to California. I am leaving for my month in Madison/Stanford in a week and a half though, and I just can't get excited about going. Partly it's that I feel very settled in to my life here right now, and I don't really want to leave. More than that though I am dreading all the questions about what I am doing next year, etc... When I am here everyone knows better than to ask any of the graduating people about job stuff. Everyone knows it's stressful. Everyone knows that it's better just to leave it alone. My family and friends outside of math ask a lot of questions though. And it's great that they care and are interested in my life. But honestly, until it's time to hear about jobs, I don't want to think about it.
When you see people you haven't seen in a while you have to answer a lot of questions: about your job, about your relationships, about everything. So many things in my life are hard to define right now that I don't know how to answer those kinds of questions...
