Moving on

Over the last few weeks Bekah has been encouraging me to begin working torward something, rather than just working.

This is a puzzling concept. I want to do more, but it seems the only thing I'm qualified to do is what I'm doing now. And the only way to change that is to go back to school. Retuning to education at the age of 27 is not any easy decision, especially with the price of colleges nowdays, and even more so when I consider the family I have to support.

If I was to go back to school, then I've got to figure out what I want to be when I grow up (I know, I'm a little too old to be clueless there). This part is frustrating for me because I tend to dream big. The two things that I really want to do are fields that are incredibly difficult to earn a living: writing and/or studio recording. With both options, I would need a "real" job elsewhere. And a little extra education in liturature composition and record production would help.

But, if niether are realistic expectations, Then what? I could study History or Communications (my intended major when I aplied at NNC and angain at USF), but then what? I would still need a job.

Please be praying for me. I've got some heavy decisions to make during the next few weeks and my Eeyore personality isn't helping any.

Thanx for letting me ramble, and I apologize if you dozed off half way through reading. I promise, it won't happen again.

  1. Online is the way to go if indeed you pursue higher education. LOL, just had a thought. Now I know why they call it higher education...it costs too much! Hee, Hee. Get it higher cost for higher...nevermind, it sounded funnier in my head than it probably does reading it.

    Anyway, keep dreaming. God has opened doors for me that I never thought would ever be opened. Now, I am in the music industry. I'll see if I can find something for you while in Nashvegas. Wanna move to Nashvegas??? Neither do I, but I have a job down there and can work from home here in nowhere Wyoming :D That makes me happy!

    Anyway, pray we will. Keep me posted.

    classes can be taken on the computer from Nazarene Bible College in Colo.Springs. I'm sure there are many schools that will let you do them on the internet.
    something to check out.
