Despite graduating from high school many, many years ago–well, the specific number of years isn’t important–there’s still this lingering feeling from time-to-time in which high school pops back into my life in some form or another. I think it’s fair to say it’s a universal feeling.
In some ways it’s good. And in some ways it’s bad.
If only we could travel back in time for a second chance at those prized opportunities missed…
(aside from the movie ’17 Again’ in which that is the literal plot)
I sense a recurring bit with these two funny people that will provide us with some great mini-sitcom moments like in the video above.
Kevin Hart’s new movie ‘Night School’ opens in a theater near you this Friday.
Have a Better Week Than Last Week.
Sometimes, the right answer is not the one we’re expecting. There are certain circumstances when one with true knowledge and perspective can read between the lines of a problem to discover the real definitive truth. To some extent, it can be seen as a bit of a skill.

In less than 12 hours, I will earn my Master of Business Administration (MBA)!
Tonight is the last class. The endless papers, citations, quizzes, tests, presentations, readings and academic problem-solving will finally come to an end after 16-months of relentless work. No breaks were taken and (at this point) it stands to be a worthwhile decision. Despite my eyes being a little blurred and my fingers worn from typing, the feeling of relief and achievement is now only hours (not weeks or months) away from coming to fruition.
Like the final pages of my final textbook, this chapter can finally be closed.
My regular life can finally return from its almost year-and-a-half long hiatus. Not only this, but there are a few other special things occurring right now that are almost perfectly coinciding with this moment.
New chapters that don’t require an over-priced textbook will begin and continue.
It’s now time to master the important things in life…
One week until the last academic paper is submitted.
One week until the last page of the last chapter of the last textbook is read and closed.
One week until the last email with the university address is written.
One week until the last 3+ hour class is attended on a Tuesday night.
One week until my weekends are given back to me in full.
One week until midnight deadlines are no longer a ticking bomb-like concern.
One week until I can completely dictate my evening’s activities each day Monday-Friday.
One week until I earn my Master’s Degree in Business Administration.
Now I know what marathon runners feel like when they’re giving everything they’ve got for that final push to the finish line.
Well, not exactly, but I too will definitely take a big gulp of a certain cold beverage afterwards…
