I saw this post from 8/20/2007 and felt that I should be reposted.
Today is the second day of classes where I work. It has been a madhouse. As I look over student records I am seeing date of births that include 1992, which is the year that I pledged my sorority. I was a junior and I was on the four year plan. At the end of that summer, I lived with my father and seriously thought about my life. I dated a guy ten years older than me. I entered Fall 1992 with a plan to attend graduate school. Good thing, too.
I had been fielding questions from family members who wanted to know what I planned to do with a degree in Sociology and a minor in Pan-African Studies. I didn't know either.
When I go home tonight, I think I am going to have a eight dollar bottle of beer.
To the archives after the jump.

I have been pretty busy and working late since last week getting ready for the new students.
I learned that this year's freshmen include young people who were born the year that I graduated from High School.
I knew that this day would come.
I thought that I would be ready for it.
But I am not....

The website where I found that picture wrote that in today's dollars that computer would cost $13,800........
