What can I expect with an unconventional name change?

I'd like to legally take my spouse's last name. Difficulty: I'm a guy; we've already been married for 10 years.

What's it like to be a graphic/web designer at 40+?

I've been on the graphic/web design path for the last 10 years. I am burnt out. When I look into the future of my field, it's dreary due to outsourcing and automation. It also seems like older designers are almost non-existent (except for the very accomplished, established ones) and that it's more the younger generation's game. [more inside]

Internal Relationship Struggle in the Face of Healthy Change

I am going through a period of significant change at the moment where I am trying to address some long-standing problems in my life, and I think I am on the right track and making some real progress. My one big dilemma is related to my relationship. I actually credit a lot of my progress to my boyfriend and his unshakable support and the undercurrent of what I think is calmness in our house. BUT, I am finding myself kind of shrinking from him, and if I am being honest, feeling a sort of (shameful) disgust towards him. [more inside]

Climate change and radical adaptation

Months ago (possibly a year or two), I heard an NPR interview with an author who made the case that the international community is past the point of being able to mitigate climate change - that the challenge now is radical adaptation (evacuating islands and coastal cities - things like that). This was on Wisconsin Public Radio, but I don't remember whether it was a state or national show. It's possible that he was British or Australian, but it's very possible that I'm mis-remembering that part. Also, I'm almost positive it wasn't James Howard Kunstler (and searching NPR for him doesn't turn up the interview). Any idea who the author could have been, or where I might find the interview? That's almost nothing to go on, but I've seen AskMeFi identify a 30 year-old coffee mug based on a mis-pronounced name and a wish, so I have hope! [more inside]

Student loans at 40?

Is it worth it at 40yrs. old to take out student loans and go back to school full-time for 2 years? The profession I am interested in has a starting pay around 45-60K and is in the healthcare profession, so jobs are plentiful. I would be taking out about 30K in loans and of course, losing my current salary. My spouse and I both make pretty good money, we have a 4 month old child, we own a home and have 2 car notes, but no other debt. Considering these factors is it worth it to take on that amount of debt at 40 to make that kind salary? Is having a more satisfying career, being a happier person, parent and spouse (not that I am unhappy personally, just very dissatisfied with my career) worth the loss of salary and debt? Is that fair to my family?
