and someone brought up the availability of jobs. I mentioned that I graduated from college last year and literally everyone in the room gasped. It was a really weird moment and I almost regret it. I am a bit concerned that my students are going to look at me so much differently now knowing that I’m actually young. I have a face where I could look 23 or I could be older and just not look it. I know at least of few students were just impressed that I had gotten a job so quickly.
I just wish I had never said anything.

If you feel like you’re not doing enough, that’s a good sign you’re doing just fine. So breathe and don’t beat yourself up.
