A Somewhat Useless Degree

Emily and I at the college
 I went to (2009)
Like many people right out of high school, I had no fraking clue what I wanted to do with my life. Heck, I'm 34 years old and I just recently figured out what I wanted to with my life. But, also like most people, I went to college right out of high school.

I attended Central Michigan University for 7 years. I went through three majors. I spent a year as a music major, several years as a computer science major and finally settled on broadcasting as a major.

I graduated in August of 2002 with my Bachelors of Science in Broadcasting (Yeah, I know that is a little funny). And I promptly didn't do anything with my degree. It didn't help that my mom passed away the same week I graduated from college. But I also decided that I wasn't competitive enough to pursue a degree in Broadcasting.

So I have a lot of useless knowledge that I don't use for anything. I did get to dredge some of that knowledge up tonight. I was the co-host of 2nd GeekMom podcast. It brought back some lovely memories of my college days.

My first degree is pretty useless and I don't really want to do the line of work that my 2nd degree will be in. I'd rather just be a writer, but it might be a few years before I can make a living at that. But at least I can find some uses for all the knowledge I've gained in all my years of higher learning.
