one foot in the classroom. one foot in the grave. one foot in the classroom. one foot in the grave. nineteen years of preparation it all comes down to this. all steps lead to the next step which leads to college which will prepare you for life. or was it death that my professors lectured about as they engraved professions into my brain. if you do this and you do that success and money will fall in your lap and then youre trapped and there is no going back. one foot in the classroom. one foot in the grave. one foot in the classroom. one foot in the grave. LOOKING BACK ON IT, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT UPSETS ME MOST ABOUT MY COLLEGE EXPERIENCE WAS THE WAY THAT MANY OF MY PROFESSORS WERE FOCUSED ON TRAINING US FOR WHAT WED BE DOING IN THE "REAL WORLD" AS OPPOSED TO TEACHING US INFORMATION THAT COULD BE USED IN A WIDER VARIETY OF SITUATIONS. THEY OFTEN SEEMED SO FOCUSED ON GETTING US JOBS THAT THEY FORGOT WHAT THEY WERE TEACHING. THERES MORE TO EDUCATION THAN LANDING A "GOOD" JOB AND MAKING A TON OF MONEY. DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO BE HAPPY.
