Week In Review: Head Above Water

Saturday, October 20, 2018

Hi, all! How has your week been?
I just finished Everything And Nothing ahead of schedule, so on Monday I'll be emailing PDF copies to everyone who signs up for my monthly newsletter!  It's all free, so why not check it out?

My week has been the new-ordinary-too-busy-help variety.  I just realized that I had some sale plans for November/December that I needed to work out, which I hadn't.  At all.  Oops.

Also, the great realization that the fancy ole degree I've chipped away at for the past 7 semesters -- probably isn't worth much of anything.  Times are a'changing.  When I started college, everyone told me it was a must if I wanted to get a job that isn't in foodservice.
I worked foodservice for 2 years to pay for this degree.
I would rather keel over into a vat of boiling oil than go back.  I have the scar to prove that burning oil means business.
Cue three and a half years later -- "job requirements: high school diploma or GED."
I don't know how many job listings I've seen for remote copywriting or editing positions this week.

I know this isn't the case for a lot of jobs, but it's definitely a discouragement. Or maybe a "screaming-WHYYY-at-the-sky" moments.

Point is, times are changing.  The job market is saturated with degrees since schools started pushing degrees as a prerequisite to the American Dream and now they've decided that experience and hard work, by far, trump degrees.  Duh, but...ugh. 

Anyway. 


Current projects: Taking a break since I finished off Everything And Nothing !

Currently reading: Beyond Her Calling by Kellyn Roth. I'll have a review written for it on Thursday, so keep your eyes peeled for a special post! I also read The Insanity of God by Nik Ripken, which I'll be reviewing soon, and Overcomer by David Jeremiah, the review for which you can see HERE.
