“I’m a ramblin’, gamblin’, hell of an engineer!”

16 Oct

This past weekend Dave, Walt, and I went for a walk around Georgia Tech campus with my good friend Never Contrary. She was one of my best friends at Tech, and she hadn’t been back to Atlanta in almost a decade, so we decided to take our families on a little tour after lunch at The Varsity.

Whenever I go back to campus I get a good mix of nostalgia and intellectual energy that just permeates the air where so many geniuses are thinking. It makes me wistful for times gone by and wishing I could go back and study some more. I didn’t actually get an engineering degree but did learn a lot about history and writing thanks to my History, Technology, and Society degree. If I could do it over again I would definitely do something more technical and had HTS be a double major or minor or something like that. But I don’t find it shocking that my 30 year old self is much smarter than 18 year old Katherine.

I will definitely let Walt know that he should only go to Georgia Tech, if he decides to go to college at all. Besides the fact that Tech is awesome, it is also more awesome than any other school out there (especially Georgia). And it has only gotten prettier and better since I left. They turned all the parking lots on central campus into green space. We walked around noting where buildings and other things were different and where things were the same too. It was fun showing it off to little boy.

Yes, he dipped his feet in the Campanille.
I used to eat lunch on those steps all the time.
