I've been thinking a lot about time lately--the past, the present, and the future. I've been looking back a lot at my previous college experience, as I've spent a lot of time in the last few weeks trying to work with the appropriate folks at my current institution to get previous credits transferred.  In looking [...]

A great story that I can relate to!
