  11. Why is it so hard to find part-time work?
    What? I've never been fired from any case. I'm not "out there." Every past supervisor I've had has written me a letter of recommendation and provides a solid, truthful reference. I've never had...

    I feel compelled to reply. Even if my story helps one person a tiny bit, it's worth it. Nursing school killed my marriage. We were together 3 years, then I started school, we married at the...

  15. cost of healthy meals
    The long term return on the investment will offset the up front cost. What you spend on spinach today, you will save on Metformin later. Our poor species. It's so hopeless sometimes it's...

  24. How do you feel about professors locking the door?

  25. How do you feel about professors locking the door?
    I think it's a little over the top, and somewhat lazy for a prof to do this. The entire class should not be treated like caged reptiles because a few were late. For the INSANE cost of tuition, these...
