Father Knows Best

I didn't start writing this blog to constantly vent my current frustrations. Ok, well I did a little bit. But mostly because I find there are so many people in the same boat as me. So what do you do when the economy is tanked, you're broke, and there are no jobs? What my Dad has been telling me all along: finish your degree.

I used to hate it that my parents were always right. I am typically rebellious. Although I don't even have my ears pierced (pretty straight laced, right?), I always do the opposite of what they tell me to do. My Dad doesn't say anything and let's me make my own decision. It's called learning the hard way. I have learned many things the hard way.

I've been so focused on making it on my own I've completely forgotten to finish that damn degree. And the fact is that I can't make it on my own. Not right now. Maybe that piece of paper will help. Maybe two pieces of paper will help. But it seems that I'm fighting a losing battle. Time to regroup and develop new strategy. I'm 28 but I can start my life over new whenever I want.
