A night before a day of service

(09/20/21 4:00am)

I put my key in the ignition, turned it, and started driving without a destination. I didn’t know where I was going, but I did know that I needed a break from Duke. Every journey is defined by the choices made along the way, and quickly, I met my first choice of the night: should I turn right or left on South Buchanan Blvd? Since I hate making left turns, I turned right. I drove for maybe a half mile before I was met with a familiar building: The Emily K. Center. Even though I have never entered the building before for fear of being judged for my crappy admissions essay, I had friends who sang praises of the Emily K. Center for helping them get into their dream college. Maybe someday I will enter, not as a student seeking help but as a volunteer. However, that train of thought didn’t last long before I met a traffic light.
