Oddly enough, I pretty much did the reverse order.
Oddly enough, it was for this reason. Went to a sausage fest of a university - unwashed engineers in their PJs as far as the eye can see.
Evolve, differentiate, or spend countless nights playing WoW. Maybe I didn't evolve, but I certainly differentiated.
Worked out - years later my mrs, then g/f, mentioned something offhanded about the quality of my sheets back-in-the-day. Gave my X years younger self a fist bump.
You just gave me flashbacks to my engineering undergrad days, so much PJ WOW playing, so little showering.
