Do you ever miss school?

    Not the beer bonging, bar-hopping, pot-smoking and frequent casual sex. Of course we all miss that.

    But saw kids start to saunter around today at the local university today and thought, "Damn, crazy as it sounds, I'd rather be going to a discussion on Kant or turning in a paper this morning than sticking a tape recorder in someone's face and pitching a story to my editor."

    Maybe I miss getting grades, I don't know. Or learning something beyond the team's two-deep as my primary occupation every day.

    Carrying a mop and cleaning up the boy's bathroom and gym from 10:00 pm to 6:00 am isn't "school".

    I'm hearing you. Actually, I think I would have gotten more out of some of the courses I blew off if I knew then what I know now.

    (And I DEFINITELY would have gotten more out of my free time if I knew then what I know now.)

    Let's see. Junior year of college . . .

    took an overload of course hours . . . worked 30 hours a week part-time at the city's newspaper . . . wondered and worried if there would be a place for me at the local paper when I graduated in a year (turns out there wasn't) . . . lived paycheck to paycheck . . . had to borrow money once to get my car back after it was towed and impounded for an unpaid parking ticket . . . was tired ALL the time . . . one time I even fell asleep getting a fucking haircut . . .

    No, don't miss it at all.

    Sadly, that's usually the way life works.

    Indeed. And I'd definitely take the living check-to-check and hard lessons for the opportunity to try it all again.
