Still, it was a great experience. The first twenty minutes of every class was spent catching up with each other. Our professor told us that if we are all going through this experience then we had to do it together – that we don’t have the option of being anonymous individuals. When the World Cup came on he told us that we aren’t allowed to burry our heads in the sand and pretend like the rest of the world wasn’t happening around us – even as students in a rigorous program (8 months of classes in 9 weeks!) that we can’t disengage from the world.
