Yes, despite the dearth of posts recently, I’m still with pulse and respiration.
Round two of my college career starts next week and I’ve been getting ready for that.
Raped by cost of textbooks…check
Seriously, what a racket. I thought the health care industry was bad but when the cost of the books for ONE of my classes is greater than the total cost of tuition/fees for said class…holy cow talk about inflating the value of your product. I’m in the wrong line of work…forget novel writing, I’m going to write a textbook on how to artificially inflate value for your product and make out like a bandit.
In the news: the gun debate is making me crazy. Really kind of making my skin crawl and although I’ve posted before, I’m so frustrated that BOTH sides of this issue are leading with their nutcases that I am very pessimistic that a real solution to gun violence will be achieved in my lifetime. I have never seen an issue where flight from reality is so readily accepted in the name of furthering one’s agenda.
Lastly, I took a few vacation days this week and am truly enjoying cleaning out some closets and getting some good bike rides in. The weather is warming up and spring is around the corner….
