Fun fact! My high-school girlfriend’s dream in life was to go to Hampshire College. She was very keen on its no-grades policy, and also, she was a hippie.

It didn’t work out for her.
It didn’t work out for us, either.
[insert Cistullian quote from E.M. Cioran]

It was the 20th-century Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges who said, “Nothing is built on stone; all is built on sand, but we must build as if the sand were stone,” which seems a perfect encapsulation of both your high-school relationship and the institution of Hampshire College.
