let me see here good dr.

i spent 3 years smoking pot with most of my instructors for my mfa.  i 
ran my first mfa year consecutive with my last year of bfa work or pot 
smoking with some of my instructors.  when they told me i had to get a 
high school diploma before getting my bfa there i toyed with the idea 
of leaving.  as you can maybe see i have very little respect for a 
comprehensive education that someone anoints you with.  no shit, i went 
through my undergraduate as a high school drop out.

how anyone can stand doing a dma is beyond me except for killing time.  
i went to the only school i could go to and used college as a way to 
drain money from the system and not get a job.  they told me that my 
mfa was a terminal degree when i was grabbing it.  it was curious that 
it was terminal to me.  i wasn't having a heart attack.
