New Peer Adviser Slowly Realizing Maybe This Isn’t for Him
Evanston, IL - First time Peer Adviser Mason Miller slowly began to realize that maybe this whole peer advising thing isn’t exactly for him, sources confirmed Monday morning. The PA’s epiphany over a Sargent breakfast marked the beginning of a downward spiral that will continue until the completion of this year’s Wildcat Welcome.
Miller was also beginning to lose patience with having to hide any sort of negative emotions he felt towards Northwestern, its affiliates, or the institution of higher education in general.
“I mean, you don’t want to scare them,” Miller told one of his fellow PAs, “but they’re going to be disappointed by something around here sooner or later. Isn’t this whole charade starting to feel a bit unnecessary?”
The questions about where the best places are to eat in Evanston, how much people really party in college, what professors to take, and how to balance work and play in college got old.
Mason also became exceedingly uncomfortable when his participants began to ask him questions of a more personal nature, including if he had a girlfriend, if he was truly happy at Northwestern, and if he would like to hang out with them after Wildcat Welcome sometime.
“They just have so many god damn questions about everything. It’s exhausting,” Miller commented.
Later that morning he met his PA group whereupon they immediately started another name game while Mason considered what the legitimate consequences for not showing up the next day would be. He is reportedly still considering.
