A piece of advice was given to me a few years ago while I was still studying at Emerson.
“Stay in school as long as you can, this economy sucks.”
I’m not sure if this person was joking or not, but either way, I knew I wanted to pursue my education further. In the long run, it would get me a better job. I looked at schools and got applications, but there was always one question I didn’t know how to answer… what degree are you trying to pursue?
UGH, I wish that question would just go away and die forever…
That’s why it’s taken me this long to actually do this. I’m not saying I found my life’s “passion” or anything. But, I did find something that would utilize my useless degree and the sales skills I’ve accumulated over the past few years to good use.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the expensive, confusing, harsh world of insurance.
I think it’s a good career move. However, there’s just one little thing standing in my way of making money… I need to get an Insurance License. And in order to do that, I need to pass a 100 multiple choice exam.
DUN. DUN. DUUUUUNNNNNN!!!
Now, since my last temp job, I’ve basically been a stay at home mom… I cook:
I take care of the dog (which is like my baby):
And finally, after a long long day of housework and watching re-runs of Grey’s Anatomy, I wait around for my boyfriend to come home from work:
My fuel for studying has been to get me out of this damn house and stop watching mindless videos on YouTube.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Time to get to work!
Here’s an interesting problem I ran into during my studies, I forgot how to be a college student. Not in terms of stereotypes, I’m still very good at drinking. I’m talking about focusing, getting to work, actually learning something. This had proven difficult for me, even though I’m only 2 years out of school… Kinda makes you think what could happen if you just stopped learning new things all together… scary shit.
If I had advice for anyone who is out of school that is trying to earn a degree, or obtain a license, or for some reason needed to know 1000 pages of information in a small amount of time, you’re shit out of luck cause I have no idea, sorry. Try flashcards.
My exam is tomorrow so I better get the hell off line and get back to work.
