First off, hello all... Vacations are nice but it is good to be home...
Now on to the topic.
I would have to say, STAY IN SCHOOL... For many reasons. One of which is the many cool people you meet in college, not to mention the parties... but
on the serious side, even if its not for the extra money, it opens up many possibilities. Take me for instance, I am one of the very few people who
are intentionally taking a pay cut.
I have been working in advertising for the past year and am now going back to my true enjoyment... Journalism. It is one of the best things in the
world to actually enjoy going to work.
I have worked the high paying (high stress) jobs, but found that even though I made plenty of money, I didn't have time to spend it.
Now I take it easy, work 25 or so hours a week, have time to coach my daughter's t-ball team, etc., yet still get the bills paid, something that I
would have never had time for, had I not went to college.
P.S. Even if you decide to get your G.E.D. go to college...
I left High School to my G.E.D. and then went to college. Still maintained my honor's scholarships, just as if I had graduated, just didn't have to
wait for my senior year.
