Stuck up here at work again and wondered: Who is going to school? Anyone in college/high school or graduated? Where do/did you go?
I'll be starting my first semester of vocational school this summer. Been living on my own and managing two different jobs once I graduated high school but I can finally admit: I need to better myself. I'll be majoring in web development at a community college that my girlfriend goes to.
Haha. I'm doing Hotel Management at Glion, Institute of Higher Education. It's a Bachelor's degree. I wanted to try the industry out, and I wondered where I should do it. Glion is joint first in terms of being "The best Hotel school in the world", and so I decided to apply there. And here I am, in my third semester.
I should be badass by the time I finish. I'm really looking forward to making it big in the business.
Im studying Creative Writing in a uni where the whole Creative Writing department is a mythological being seeing as its impossible to get a response from them by email or in person about when deadlines and critical meetings are that involve choosing courses for final year. It's a good thing I work ahead or I'd be screwed.
Hmm.. School huh? Not much of a fan. I had a rough time through the end of high school because of my "lack of interest" (in other words, Final Fantasy XI). I managed to work my way out in to the real world one step at a time. The great thing about the IT industry is you can't put a standard on programmatic practices. Mainly because technology in it self is an ever changing subject. It's good enough to get away with no degree and minor certification (I refuse to pay for those). I don't think that education was the easiest means for me to learn mainly because a person like myself has en easier time picking an object up, taking it apart, and putting it back together until it becomes a routine. I'm not saying that education is a waste of time, but for myself and the situations that I was involved in I didn't have a choice. I'd love to go back to school though. I would love to teach Computer Science someday, whenever that will be. (in 19 years hah!)

There have been many times I have considered going back however at my age I just can't seeing doing it now, plus I have experience on my side now.
Anthony, I agree to be successful in IT does not require a degree however to move up the chain it helps. I don't have one and have move my way up but it takes a lot of work and helps to have mentors.
