Posted by Sunday, August 31, 2014 0 21

I have been twenty-four for 2 days now, and I can say without hesitation that I feel totally and completely different. Seriously, the level of maturity in my very bones has skyrocketed. 24 is the new 30. Except that it is not. I do not have my life anymore figured out than I did two days ...

For some of us recent grads, continuing our education beyond the bounds of a bachelor's was never in the cards. Because if you have the ability to start down your chosen career path without a master's, Ph.D., or J.D., that's excellent. But some passions require "higherer" education (as I will refer to it) to be fulfilled ...
