I want infinite time

It's MIT graduation time. That has caused me to think of this, although it's not just people from the MIT community. A lot of people I know are going off and doing cool and interesting things. They're starting interesting companies, building families, or doing other cool and neat things. Especially for the professional type stuff, there's been a lot of mixed emotions going through my head. I'm really happy for them. However, I'm also sad; some of these ideas seem really cool. I keep thinking to myself, "Why didn't they ask me if I wanted to be involved."

In some cases, they did. In other cases, they clearly knew I wouldn't be what they needed or I don't have enough time. In one case, we're even seeing if we can try and make it work.

I have my own cool things. I'm trying to figure out how to make them more cool and get others involved. So, this is all irrational, but it does make me wish I had more time, more energy and could do more.
