Out of the Blue

Well I hoped to take delivery of a couple of baskets for my new rotisserie in time for the weekend, as I have ideas for a couple of things to use it for like veggies and chicken wings that won't work on the forks, but that's not going to work out, so I'll just have to start out on a typical chicken dealie. Now I have to figure out how people cook baseballs on one of these things.

I finished my college career as I was told I wouldn't get anywhere if I didn't. I went to a private catholic college that is pretty well known in the midwest and has a lot of alumni in some of the best companies in the midwest. Why? Because I was a corporate shill and just wanted a sweet executive corp job. I was well on my way when I pulled the plug on that shit! I didn't use much in IT/Finance that i learned in college, but the degree got me places I would never had made on my own.

Went back to school for my current job, but I learned a ton to apply to my job. Why? Cause out teachers were people who work in the field and told us the right way. Luckily, I already had a 4 year degree, so I only needed to do another year of a cohort to get certified.

The bottom line is you need to set yourself up to succeed, not fail. There are jobs that require a degree just as a hoop to jump through, and there are jobs you can be super successful at by just doing it. Either way, you need to be smart about it. If you aren't, well, then that is just your own damn fault (her's) and I don't feel any sympathy, yet I do have empathy for the situation.
