Maple Leafs are Gay

I only say this because Kanadians love them so.

So anyway on this, the 10th anniversary of my 20th birthday, I've been contemplating a few things.

First of all, I've had this dreadful feeling for a couple of days. Somewhere in an alternate universe, chemo didn't work for Andy or maybe we didn't catch it in time. I just have this dreadful feeling that if things wouldn't have gone well, this would be about the time we'd be making funeral arrangements. I know that's such a horrible thing to even think, let alone say, but that's why I have this website so I can get this kinda stuff out.

On a much lighter note I was thinking about the issue of respect. Notoriously I haven't been able to garner much respect because of my age. People always say things like, "I know you have education but I have experience." I'm starting to think this is because they're jealous of my education. Screw you and your experience. Now that my age starts with a "3" instead of a "2" do I now have enough experience to be taken seriously?

I have no doubt that people are jealous of you because you have your master's degree. They likely feel threatened by you and they may even assume that you earn more money than they do because of your degree. Speaking as someone who also has a master's degree I am darn proud of it. It was no easy accomplishment and it took a lot of hard work. However, it was an incredible experience and the knowledge I gained from it invaluable. I have no dounbt that someday by virtue of having an advanced degree doors will open for me that otherwise wouldn't and I bet the same will be true for you. I would also add that no matter how old you are, no matter how much experience you have, no matter your education there will always be people who think that they are better and smarter than you are. I have learned to smile at those folks and just keep moving forward!:)
