i found this picture today.

i am wondering where the smiling skinny person went

am i getting better at this life or worse?

knowing who took the picture fills me with sadness

i am realizing the last three years fill me equal parts happiness/melancholy/confusion

am i just another douchebag?

was i ever the person in that photo?

i feel like a hollow person

filled with academic bullshit, what was once seen as important.

it means nothing.

and i am wondering,

am i getting better at this life or worse?

Obviously, I don't know the details of your current situation. But this may either be a case of either of these truisms:
"The grass is always greener on the other side" : As in, you don't know if you would be feeling intellectually void had you never joined academia.

or the second truism "ignorance is bliss" : Perhaps you were happier when you weren't aware of what you do now. But would you give it up?
