Something About Green Grass??

    They say the grass is always greener on the other side. Well... They're lying. I just graduated college, so I have had the joy of spending the past 5 years cooped up in assorted classrooms, learning the fundamentals of calculus, physics, chemistry and of course meteorology, among many others. Well, somewhere between years 3 and 5 the novelty of it all wore off and the grass on the graduated side of the fence began to look awful green.  Now, don't get me wrong, these subjects gave me the knowledge required to get to where I am in life and for that I am grateful.. And as much as I will miss those week-long cram sessions at the library (I sure hope you're catching my sarcasm), taking tests is kind of sucky, and needless to say I had to take a LOT of tests over my educational career at Central Michigan University. So far here at WTAP, zero.

    Now, let me stop here. I know what you're thinking.. I've been graduated for about a month. At the new job for a few weeks.. The excitement of change will wear off sooner rather than later and I will yearn for the Saturday tailgates and summers off.. And maybe it will.. For now allow me to reach into my bag of quotes and refer to the time tested, somewhat procrastnatic approach, "we will cross that bridge when we get there.."

   I suppose I could create some sort of pros and cons list, but that sounds an awful lot like homework.. Certainly not something I want to be doing in my spare time. I guess I'll just go with my gut, and currently the grass has never looked greener here on the graduated side of the fence..
