So I’m at the gym a couple of weeks ago, sweating profusely, wearing shorts and a tank-top, and my hair is in something that looks like a bun/bird’s nest on top of my head and one of my former students approaches me and we begin a conversation about her life direction, grad school decisions, etc. I’m flattered that this student likes me that much to stand so close to me despite me being disgusting. It was then I realized that these “impromptu career advising sessions” happen to me all the time.
The Top 5 Places Where Impromptu Career Advising Takes Place for me at Elon (in no particular order):
1. Women’s bathrooms 2. Parking Lots 3. The Gym 4. Old Trollinger (where Marianne and I live) 5. Acorn coffee shop
