So, in the course I teach, we have a few classes that I call aha moment days. One is the "Day of Doom", which, well, I don't want to talk about right now, being all doom and all!
The other is the, "Hey, guess how much money you REALLY will make" We had that class today, and I have to say it went over better than expected, no tears, no temper tantrums, just acceptance. Interestingly enough, the two statistics that got attention today were: That woman in a two partner heterosexual relationship make 80% of travel decisions, and that woman who label themselves as liberal in their youth (teens/twenties) label themselves conservative later in life (30's+) by as much as 50%. Funny what spooks people ;)
