I had a talk with my gf who recently dumped me. She told me that she needed to be with someone with similar life experiences as hers. School is a big part of her life, and she is working toward a degree in medicine as well as an MBA (she already has another master's in biology). I'm 28, and at one point in my life I was very bent on finishing college, but till now I haven't been able to because of circumstances in my life. What she said made me think about my decision to postpone college for now. I have a writing business that is just now getting off the ground. I haven't even earned a two-year degree, but it hasn't stopped me from utilizing my writing talents to make a living. On the other hand though, going back to school would help me a lot in the long run to gain expertise and credibility in the fields i write in.

Thanks so much, hive mind peeps.

Any suggestions for a ridiculous, over-the-top push up bra? I'm 5'3, 145# and bra size 38-A and am trying to find a crazy, I See Wot You Did There bra as a joke. Yes, the bra size is accurate. I'm all A and no T! I'm specifically looking for specific brand names/lines. My price range is approx. $75.00.
