you arent alone in this decision. as everyone is probably well aware by now, im making the same choice this semester as you are -- work a no-go and school-speed ahead. i talked them into letting me work on weekends still with no decrease in pay (8 hours a day) just based on my history with the company and my skills. that will allow me to live, minus my car.

i applaud your bravery.

It is a wise man (or woman) who goes back to school to complete their educational goals.
Haro you are making a move you will never regret.

Been a really short semester to me, but I have wrote many papers and designed many projects. Only 6 actual class days left of this semester! Graduation is on May 15th

FINALLY going to graduate from college.

Just finished the last day of my college career.

I don't feel like I thought I would. I feel relieved that the homework and **** is done, but the "into the real world" factor is hitting home pretty hard. I have to start looking for a job soon, I can't fix and part cars for a living with a college degree

Graduation ceremony is on Thursday, you are all invited!

Congrats. I'd stop by if I could. I'm sure you'll have no problem finding a job when all is said and done.

Planning on staying in that area, or looking elsewhere in the state/country?

I plan on staying in the general area for about a year, and then when Shannon is graduated we will head to a more populated area, but still in Minnesota.

Good choice you made and good work getting it done!

You know that all you have to do is put your mind and resources to work in order to get what you want or need.

Congrats on your graduation and good luck on the job search!
