I don’t usually bother telling people I went to Michigan for a single semester anymore. There isn’t much point because I’m at the age where people don’t give a shit where you went to school. They just ask you that question as a way of passing the time. But I also don’t mention it much because frankly, I’m still somewhat embarrassed by it. I transferred from Michigan, and while being a transfer student isn’t that big of a deal if you happen to be a D-I athlete shuttling between programs, it means something quite a bit different when you’re just a plain old kid.
