I toil not on the Sabbath!

I bet lots of us feel like we're somehow "behind" in life compared to our peers. I know I do. Other people always seem to have their lives so together and organized that I feel no small amount of anxiety about "where I am in my life." Of course, the rational part of me says that this is just an illusion; other people are just as adrift in life as myself. But that rational part of me is too reserved compared to the irrational part of me that is yelling like a drill sergeant whose wife just left him. I took preliminary steps today towards a master's degree in Education. I feel a strong urge to matriculate, but the path before me is unclear. where to study? what to study? when to study? why study? "Because it's there." -George Leigh Mallory
