I'm 37 years old and I spent last night tossing and turning because of nightmares....nightmares caused by college math. Tonight after a 2 year absence, I resume an almost 20 year struggle to complete my college degree. I started college in the fall of 1988. Ronald Reagan was still in office. How freakin' pathetic am I? I left (or was asked to leave) in 1990. I went back part time in 2000 and left again when the funds dried up in 2005. So here I am now, 20 hours shy of my degree...needing Math, Stats, and 2 Science classes. Did I mention I've failed Math multiple times previously? Hence the nightmares. I'm not usually a praying man but if you're up there, save me Superman!
About 2 years ago the New York Times began charging online readers to view its Op/Ed pieces and the works of their regular columnists like Maureen Dowd and Frank Rich. Now the NYT has decided to scrap that idea (I'm guessing they weren't making any money). I was all excited when I saw that this morning but quickly disappointed as I didn't see anything that caught my eye.
