One thing that was really hard for me when I was in academia is how lonely it felt to be working on something that nobody cared about. I was seeing all of these beautiful things and I couldn't share them with anyone.
Sometimes I want to go back and do mathematics "for real" but then I feel sad when I think I won't be able to share it with anyone.
