Title should be “Accidentally Asked Out Some Far Out of League”. I was in Multivariable Calculus today, and I met a student who was new to the school. I thought he was a traditional student—it was Multivariable, a second-year class here—but not only was he only taking one class at my school (while working towards a PhD at another), he has an M.D. and his own office, and is working towards a PhD. I asked him out for coffee and then to explore campus before I had realized any of that. Now I’m incredibly embarrassed because I’m really awkward and informal, and I’ve only just finished HS, so I feel especially childish in comparison. Talk about out of my league. I just wanted to know if any of you guys have ever made such horrible miscalculations before so I don’t feel like such an idiot… His title was even in his signature in his first e-mail to me! But I thought it was some weird attachment to the e-mail body and didn’t even bother reading it. I mean, who even reads e-mail signatures these days???
