It seems that I will not be withdrawing from the University of Maryland, after all. I received notice that the teaching assistantship that I had hoped to have, but which ended up not vacating, has opened, and I can avoid falling further into debt. I cannot, without acting hypocritically, rescind the complaints that I’ve made about the University (and the state), but I, nonetheless, look forward to finishing my degree, to gaining some teaching experience, and to no longer feeling the weight of the world on my shoulders. A beer before eleven doesn’t scream “Alcoholic!”, does it?
