Part 1: The Adventures of Being a Dad The Problem with Work I was one of the many unfortunate people who leave college in worse shape than when they arrived. Not because I spent all my time and liver cells partying instead of studying (I don’t and never did drink much). Not because of some unmarketable dance theory degree (I was a Business major). Not even because of crushing student debt (thanks, Mom and Dad). No, I had bigger problems. I went into college knowing who I was and what I wanted to be, but I graduated feeling utterly lost about what I was doing or where I was going.
