Day 96: The Last Words A Friend Told Me
The last night I was at MIT, one of my closest friends (who I never thought would be when I first got there) was walking with me back to my dorm.
I had already packed up my stuff and was ready to go. We were walking back from a friend's apartment where I had already said my goodbyes.
The walk was silent for the most part. After six years with these guys, you've talked about everything under the sun. What more is there to say?
But when we got back to the dorm grounds, we still at the junction to go our separate ways.
The last thing he said was, "Fred, make sure you take care of yourself."
That was 1.5 years ago.
I'll be honest with you, while I'm in a bunch better position personally and professionally than I was throughout my time at MIT, I still have a ways to go in taking care of myself.
F., if you ever read this, I just want you to know I'm working on keeping my promise.
Your silly friend,
