I like your dream. Have the same dream myself. It's a biggie. And it is harder- or so it seems- to get the get up and go to go back to school later in life even without the financial constraints.
Maybe it's these kind of dreams that, like a hundred dollar bill in one's pocket- burn into our brains- wanting- needing to be spent.
In my case, writing a book is my way of relieving some of the burn. It may not be a degree. But once it's finished, it will be on the shelf, a bundle of thoughts thicker than a diploma.
