I Need More Education

As the summer comes to a close, so too does the “Summer of Andrew”.  This morning I was up at 6 am and could not fall back asleep so I hopped online and looked at jobs.  Not as much because I want a job, but because I wanted to see what is available.  It isn’t all the bleak.  There are definitely jobs available.  It is a matter of finding something I WANT.  The whole reason I left my last job wasn’t because it was a horrific place to work, but because I just didn’t feel a passion for it.  So after a lot of thinking today I decided that I want to go back to school.  I want to learn how to do something I think I will enjoy.  So in the next  couple of weeks I am going to work on submitting applications for Winter/Spring semesters for a couple of schools.  At the least it is something for me to work toward. 

I could also see advertising as a career (where if good enough) you could carve out a niche and start your own firm.  I would love to have my own business.  Though a good friend of mine is currently in advertising and I bet he would be a good person to work with due to the fact that he is brilliant.  I’m all about collaboration with people smarter than I am.

Here is the cool thing about the program I am applying to: I can study all around the world.  Perfect seeing how I like international travel.  If I can see the world and learn a new trade for two years.  Are ya kidding me?  I wish I had thought of this earlier.  I’m getting really excited thinking about this. 

It has been helpful to have some time off from work.  Good to relax and be able to think about what I want rather than what I need to do.
