a couple of choices...

Post by hamdizzel » June 28th, 2010, 2:28 am

im sorry all i just can't do it i only have a high school diploma
do you all think i should take 4 years here get my college degree
and then bounce?

1.college degree 4 years

2. jobcorp learn a useful trade then bounce

3.there are plenty of long term volunteer positions overseas
where you basically trade work for food and a place to sleep.

4.get a certificate in web development be patient enough
to make enough money to live on then get the heck outta here


which one do you guys think is best?
I REALLY REALLY want to leave this place specifically Washington state
it is HORRIBLE!!! i don't know maybe somewhere like montana
would be better less people and noise might be different

These are extremely personal decisions that only you can make. I highly suggest you visit a career counselor to evaluate your aptitude and potential, than you can decide which course of action is best for you.

A college degree plus a TESL certificate will keep you employed overseas for the next 40 years.
A brain is a terrible thing to wash!

I would go for the college degree and then travel. It's a lot harder to get back in the mindset of school if you've been away for a long period of time. Plus if you do 4 years, you have that to fall back on after traveling. Just a thought.
