As a counterpoint, I've got tired of being an unemployed bum and am going back to college for another degree.

Double thumbs up to that Xocrates

Just don't do what I did after I took the same decision as you and find yourself doing a PhD at the end of it.

I'm still not certain how I ended up here...

What is this 'saving time' you speak of? For the moment staying in Uni longer sounds far more fun than leaving sooner. ;)

Anyway, congrats zjoere and I guess also congrats to Xocrates. :)

Speak for yourself :P To me, college was a time of stress, shifting alliances, and non-existing free time. Work, by contrast, was easy/boring, and allowed me to go home to rest at the end of the day and have weekends for myself.

Frankly, the thing that makes the idea of going back bearable is that I should get equivalence to about half of the first 2-3 years courses, meaning a lot less exams and more time for the courses I care about.

I say it depends on your thirst for knowledge. Personally, I didn't learn shit at Uni.

Whoever said I was talking about the learning part? I'm doing so much these days that I often forget I'm even in Uni for studying. ;)

Well, I've been interviewing people non-stop for the past two weeks, and my semester hasn't even started yet! Ironically, I should be less busy when classes begin. :P

Off to the Jobs faire in October and hopefully I can bag myself some conditional job offers before I graduate. . . .

I'm one of those introverted people who gets exhausted by socialising and recharges by hiding in my fortress of solitude, certainly makes Sociology quite interesting. . . .

Wooh, new fall season! Archer, Blue Mountain State, Castle, Community, Doctor Who, The Mentalist...and I'm already having trouble keeping up with the summer season and my manga. Damn.
