-Food for Thought: "The grass is always greener on the other side" I found today in my math class that college is just like everything else in regards to this saying.. When classes are tough I miss easy classes, and (as in the case today) when classes are exceptionally easy I miss "being challenged".

 

Yes, this is Milo's dilemma in the opening scene of Norton Juster's allegorical novel The Phantom Tollbooth. It starts like this,

 

"There once was a boy named Milo who didn't know what to do with himself--not just sometimes but always. When he was in school he longed to be out, and when he was out he longed to be in. On the way he thought about coming home, and coming home he though about going" (Phantom Tollbooth, page 9).
