I Have A Relationship ( with my Data)

Just to say this: Probably a lot of the people who I interviewed, now a full two years ago, have totally forgotten me and that they even participated in this project. But I listen to these interviews that we did all the time, so I feel like these people are, like, my friends, even though we only had an hourlong conversation two years ago.

The experience is probably something like when I came back to visit the first Chinese university I ever worked at. I was all excited to see my former colleagues (even though we barely if ever communicated when I first worked there), but a lot of them only had a vague sense of who I was or that I had even ever worked with them.
