We Don't Need No Education...Oh Wait, But We Want It?

I've been delving into the world of Continuing Education lately, as I am 100% confirmed nostalgic for college but lacking the motivation for getting a M.A. Guest of a Guest lists here the Guide to the Best Classes and Hobbies in NYC. I've put together my own list of the particularly interesting ones I've found, and I encourage you to look around your city for some as well - you never know!
