In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. Kailani at An Island Life is embracing this custom with her weekly Aloha Friday posts, so I thought that today I would take it easy on posting, too.
My husband and I have come to a turning point in our lives. As many of you know my husband was laid off a few months ago and has yet to find a new job. He has an associate degree in mechanical design and 12 years experience in his field. He is stuck between a rock and a hard place because he has so much experience that he is over-qualified for many positions, but does not have the bachelor degree that many positions require.
He is contemplating returning to school to attain a bachelor degree in engineering and we are trying to figure out how to do this.
I would like to know what you wanted to be (or do) when you "grew up"? Are you doing that now?
I went to college right out of high school and was struggling academically with a 'C' average. I was missing my family and friends back home and wasn't "in the mood" for school. I was also feeling pressured to declare a major and figure out what I wanted in life. One day my roommate simply asked me, "What do you want to do when you grow up?" The first thing that came to mind was, be a wife and mother. I finished out my year in college and never went back. Today I am the wife of a wonderful man and mother of three lovely children.
To participate, go to An Island Life and ask your question. Aloha!
