Is anyone out there and reading this?

Maybe it's just me, but some times I wonder why bother posting if no one reads this. Maybe it's just because it's Monday. I'm feeling a little blah, and a little restless right now, and maybe I just need to focus on where my professional life is going. I'm not sure what the next step is. Do I go back to school and go for my real estate salesman license? Or do I commit to the whole 4 year college thing and work towards getting a degree? If I work towards a degree, what do I focus on? Yikes! Decisions, decisions, decisions.... Well that's all for now. I'm open to suggestions, and other opinions, so don't be affraid to leave feedback. I'm hoping have a clear moment, and make a change to increase my marketable skills, education, and salary within the near future.

Getting a degree I've found is an absolute neccessity, at least in NYC. I moved to NYC with a lot of experience under my belt and top results in my field for 8 years running, yet I couldn't even get a look-in here because of not having a degree. I've just finished my first ever semester in an American university (college or whatever you call it here) and had my first final exam this morning. I think it went well. They've asked me to do honors in Spring. The degree seems to be the only way I'd get anywhere in this city, as messed up as that is in light of my experience. There's my advice :)

thanks for replying Demonsurfer. I wish you the best of luck in your academic endeavors. You can never have too much education. I do sympathize with you on not finding a job with all the hands on experience though, that's kind of the situation I'm in too!
I do hope you don't mind the competitive nature of NYC!! If it ever gets to be too much for you, consider moving to the south. The pace is much slower, and the people tend to be a bit more caring.
No offense is intended to NY, or any other state for that matter, it's just my observation, growing up in the Mid-West (Akron, Ohio). I have also done a significant amount of US and international travel throughout my life and I personally don't care for the fast pace and hustle and bustle of northern city life.
I guess we'll both have to put our noses to the grind stone and jump through the academic hoops to further our careers!Cheers, and good luck!

Cheers Tiff :)
Yeah I don't like NYC much at all, but we're pretty much tied here now with university and my better half's job as well.
Have a good Xmas :)

Hey Island Tif--

This may not help for the near future, but for the long run, please consider the sage advice of Joseph Campbell: "Follow your bliss." Now you may not know what your bliss is -- I sure didn't when I first heard those words -- but I do know that it's a fundamental key to ending up doing work that feeds you (and I mean more than a paycheck).

Thanks for visiting my blog!
