the Cough of Doom seems to be mostly gone, though.
so i was talking to my mom this morning, and i mentioned one of my roommates's mildly insane class schedule. :) [*ducks*] [this started from me telling my mother that i found the row of BCC postcards on the bulletin board amusing, and about moving the DND game.] my mom says "oh, you mean she doesn't have a degree?" "no, mom... most of my friends up here these days don't. in fact, i can think of two in Seattle that do." [though i'm sure there are more, i just couldn't think right then.] "oh."
i don't think my mom realizes that both my roommates are a couple years younger than me, and still very much in a legitimate age range for college, take I. still... i think she expects people to have degrees. i'm starting to get to the point that i don't. or rather, i don't really expect either way.
however, curiousity killed the cat, and all that, so we present one very long poll...
are you currently enrolled in school or currently enrolled to start school this fall?
do you have a degree?
if you are currently enrolled or have a degree, did you do it in a straight shot? (no semesters off, though summers off are fine. no cooping. just classes.)
did you start straight our of high school?
if you did, and could go back and do it again, would you go straight out of HS?
if you have a degree, has it helped you in your career?
... and if you don't, has it hindered you?
any other comments/thoughts/whatever?
