August 8, 2014
2014 will be the year of my graduation and the affirmation of my intellectual ability. This is important for someone like me. If you are a high school dropout, have a history of mental illness; have not made a whole lot of money or married into it. If you are divorced and portray a host of other social failures, then it becomes important that you are able to authenticate your identity as a person who is able to operate on the level of normality or perhaps sub-normality, required to pass exams. Having two successful children is inadequate; as they are simply ascribed to the father’s genes or some other quirk of life. Oh, of course, doing it at 57 years old is a bit of delayed action but I was so busy working through the mentioned experiences and raising the children, I just did not get round to it.
