I told her everything I could think of to help her to feel smarter, more capable, and less trapped by the system of our school. I realise that sitting here trying to avoid and then return to this text I am feeling very like what Ajak might have been feeling on Tuesday. I understand better why I try to avoid this text with every fibre of my being. I understand why people never finish PhDs, and why they drop out of school.
