    I'm DONE! Graduation Day SATURDAY!!

    Well, last night was my final class- Research Methods. It's taken 5 years of night classes, an overnight job, and substitute teaching during the day to get it done.

    I'll be getting my MBA on Saturday, and hopefully a job soon. Had a few interviews, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    So, since everyone is gonna be getting that stimulus check here soon, you all can "gift" it too me. Just PM me, and I'll tell you where to send it!

    Hey, Beefy congrats! That's great. In the years to come when you're prosperous and yet doing nothing remotely associated with your degree, remember that little piece of paper is what got ya through the door.

    Geez they give these things away to anyone now

    Congrats on the success Beefy. I know the reward for getting my MBA was being told I needed to get a professional desingation in order to work in my field of interest...which meant 3 more years of studying...

    Any area of interest/expertise in particular? Good luck job hunting. I know what a frustrating process that can be. Just remember a bit of advice passed on to me by my mentor - "you can never wear too much Stetson".

    Well, if it involves a couch, bright lights, and "mood music" then no.

    Of course. You can shoot cans too:

    Easy, just kidding. Am I?
