Posted:I'll never go back to college, I have an expensive piece of toilet paper that has put me more behind than anything else. All I have gained is the ability to have complex conversations and a better grounding to form my own thoughts about the world around me, interpersonal tools are good just not worth the time and money IMO. I am however toying with the idea of culinary school if I don't decide to have kids within the next few years...

Complicated legal situations are ordinarily catch 22s, I feel for ya grrrl! hug

Posted:It's not about the degree and what it's worth. It's about discovery and having the time, the structure, and the resources to get really deep into something fascinating and exciting.

Believe me, I've been pursuing my interests outside of school for the last five years, but i'm still not on par with a second year grad student; maybe not even with a first year. The schooling makes more of an impact than just the degree it produces.

If you can manage the hit to your credit score and wallet, go for it! And if not don't sweat it is my current motto. yes

In Australia (for aussie citizens) we have HECS or whatever it is called now where you dont have to pay your loan until you earn a certain amount but if you work in the field you study in you dont have to pay it back until you stop. makes university worth while if you can handle being poor for 5/6years while you study

What about cross-disciplinary stuff, like a computer scientist who starts working in bioinformatics? Just idly curious.

Posted:GOD DAMN work making sure that the internet is a useless tool for all employees by not upgrading something as simple as IE. Bunch of twats and no amount of arguement with tech support will change this. Further more (and this is the most important point) i cant see anything on theis page except the text on these boards. No pictures, to tut vids, nothing! What else am i suppose to do all day?

Posted:Only 2 weeks til my first practice session with No One Burns Alone, I can't wait! So glad they got back to me and I'm in the group! Some of my friends live near there and might take part as well who want dedicated spin, workshop, and fire time. weavesmiley

August is going to be a great month, gonna invest in those kevlar sleeves on payday for the fire sessions and beanbag tails for day practice.

I'm most excited especially with meetings every other week alternating between daytime workshop sessions and night time burns. The meetings are 4-5 hours in length and worth the trek to Silver Spring, MD (the Washington DC metro area) from Dover, DE which is about a 90min drive.

I'll be sure to get lots of pics and video from practice on the 8th and fire jam on the 21st of August to post up and share! grin
