I’d be lying if I say I’m one of those students who is eager for school and doesn’t let sickness keep them home. In fact, I’m the type of student who will try (most time unsuccessfully) to stay home even if I have the slightest, teeniest amount of cough. Rather be in bed than doing math equations ANYDAY, I’m a normal human being. But for the first time, on Thursday, I felt bad for not going to school. I felt like I was missing out on an awesome opportunity, like I wasn’t being part of a project that I had helped build, shut away from this amazing meeting, I was desperate to actually go to school. And for the first time, my sickness didn’t allow it. And so I guess the point is, when you do projects that you want to do, that you build, where you contact experts, and do field trips to collect data, where you have full autonomy to drive the project wherever you want to take it, then you actually feel that responsibility and that feeling of “I have to go”. Or at least thats what I felt.
