I would like to think I’ve moved from “student” to “academic”, but then I remember my Socrates:
“An intelligent man knows he knows nothing, and a wise man knows that only God has wisdom.” (Yes, he said God… Not gods… It’s what got him in the end, in a large part.)
I’m seriously thinking about going back and challenging another degree: horticulture.
I’ve been a hands in the dirt, grow your own food, produce as much of you can, experience nature in the beauty and reality of her total dictatorship and design, sort of guy for my entire life. Might as well get one more notch on the post, right? But… I have to get my kids off to college first. Who knows… the Universe has a funny way of providing if you just give it the chance.
