The Reddit Connection That Got Me Into College
I met him online. He texted me on Christmas. Two weeks later, we met in person at a Barnes & Noble. This is the story of an internet connection that has nothing to do with romance. At 22, I was lost and living at home. I wasn’t looking for a date. I was trying to ace the SATs. It was 2011 and I had recently dropped out of a Maryland rabbinical seminary and moved back into my parents’ house in Brooklyn. Although I was back in the community I grew up in, I felt different from everyone I knew. I was depressed and friendless.
