My thoughts

I get up in the morning with a sence that today is the day I'm going to make a difference in my life. I'm overwhelmed with the pressure of being someone. Someone I wish to be but cannot reach. For instance, after several years of college you finally get the diploma and you learn that it's not enough. It's not giving you the results that you thought it would. The pressure of wanting a diploma, struggling to get it, and you can't do anything with it. This is my life struggles....Just a glimpse of what goes on in my mind. Have a great day!

I went to college, got my degree, got a job teaching, taught for four years, then decided it wasn't for me. That 1 in 3 who go into teaching don't stick with it past three years isn't all that comforting. Anyhow, I know how you feel. Now I'm back in school working on another degree.
Keep'll be the person you desire to be...sometimes it just takes longer than we think it should.

Rosie, hon, you're trying to be someone, but you already are...relax, let someone else take the wheel for a bit, and you'll find yourself steered down the right road almost unknowingly!

Sorry hon, you're so young, I remember the feeling, and it took me a long time to get beyond it...

Above all, keep writing it out, it'll make more sense when you do.

Ah, the mortarboard syndrome strikes again!!
You cannot reach to be someone, you will only be what experience tells you you are.
I got my degree, nothing to do with it, got my PHd, nothing to do with it. It is only knowlege, it is the knowledge you have to use to gain a foothold on the life you seek.
I have never praciced my profession nor added the Dr. to my name but, the knowledge has made me choose a path that is right for me and therefore was worth the time and effort.
Relax and enjoy the smell of the air, the taste of the seasons, the feelings of life. You will get where you need to be, it just takes time.
Come to my blog and see the real me if you get time and welcome to this surrealistic universe. Enjoy.

Yeah, that does suck. 4 years and thousands of $$ later
and you have just begun to do the real work. Could be
worse, I have no education and must rely on skills I have
picked up in different trades to try to push my earning
potential up.

I was once told that college doesn't teach you knowledge; it teaches you how to think and where and how to find the knowledge you seek.

Going to college just gives you an overview of what life and the business world is all about. As far as getting and keeping a job it's all about being liked by the people doing the hiring and then your boss once you get the job. By liked I mean doing a good job, be on time, prepared and not causing any trouble or pissing people off. The degree is a way to get the interview. The impression you make at the interview is what it's all about.
