When people say to me, “I think I want to go back to school and get my Master’s degree. What do you think?”
I often just reply with a simple “You’re out of your Goddamned mind.”
I want to say: You have a job. You have a full time paycheck. You have evenings to spend however you please. You don’t have to read journal articles until your eyes bleed. You probably feel like a full-grown adult. DON’T DO IT.
This is where I live. The shackles and chains didn’t make it in to the photo, but believe you me – they’re there.
So this is where I’ll be for the next few days. If I don’t resurface in a few days, please alert the authorities.
And financial aid.
