Default Monday

The clock is ticking. Only qualified for entry level positions and not getting any younger. Soon they won't hire me for those because they'll want someone younger who won't leave for greener pastures.

So I will go back to school to become a therapist. That's it. There's no turning back.

My plan

-Get a job to pay off student loans
-Take GREs
-Apply to social work schools
-Get in study

The rest is history.

Maybe not easy, but very cut and dry. No excuses.

Oops I thought I had posted this in my journal.

Anyway, what do you guys think of this?

Now that I'm back to feeling angry and like I should isolate, I want to be a researcher.

I think libertarianism, maybe social science more broadly.

Best of luck. Agreed that it's not easy.

Thanks. I either want to be a researcher or an editor. Here's hoping opportunity knocks!

It will. Keep up the efforts. In time, you'll hear that knock and something better will come.
