Damn, that'* quite the resume.
... I intend to further a couple years and a Bachelor'* in (Mechanical) Engineering after my 3 year diploma.
Advantages of doing that instead of just four years of degree stuff:
- hands on work++ = experience, university is a little too much theory for my tastes...
- $$$: it'* "easier" such that I can maintain a higher GPA; renew my scholarship, save money. Still can get a bachelor'* degree without being in as much debt. If I fail at the full on degree, I can still fall back on a really nice job as a technologist. The magnitude of my high school marks meant that I probably would've survived university just fine... but reading a book and then getting a degree doesn't float my boat too well, I wanna DO ****
- I have a long way to go... but so far I'm loving every minute of it. Jim, you told me before I went to Sheridan that it was a great place... and I totally agree. I went into my high school today to pick up some diploma paperwork, and it was really nostalgic even though I've been gone only a few months - but it just wasn't the same.
Unfortunately, there'* the double-standard thing here in life, the way things are PERCEIVED influences a lot. Sober second thought can come around and neutralize this double standard mentality, but there'* still going to be that initial moment in which there might be some... "guilt" in the aforementioned Court Of Love. And for that alone, I dunno if you should follow through with the contact, it'* a tough call.
just my 2psi of b00st.
