Where I can have unlimited access to rows upon rows of glorious books and journals. Where I can have unlimited access to film and video equipment and the means to bring my work to fruition. Oh, why did I ever leave?

The things we discover when we quit our jobs and try to be free...I think it is such a crime that this system takes advantage of people's indecision; snaps you right up and sticks you in a cubicle. I have learned. Now that I know what I want, I can return to that wretched working world. I am confident that soon I will be back in the ivory tower where I belong.
