Visiting New York in July, my friend Matt Tedesco pointed out that it had been ten years since my college graduation. It doesn't feel like ten years because after earning my B.A., I tutored and taught at Hofstra while attending Queens College at night for my Master's. After completing that, I taught at Hofstra for five more years.
Labor Day still brings that first-day-of-school apprehension. The other night I dreamed I'd double-booked a dental appointment and a Scantron test. Several minutes after waking, I was convinced I had to take the test.
