I am currently housesitting. I am alone with a cat and dog. This house it beautiful and peaceful. I miss my boat in life. I could have been married with a kid and a beautiful house. But I was too stubborn. Not that I wanted to marry T, but I had many chances. I was too young and dumb and worried about a career. Now I have no career and people turn you away because of a masters degree. This one attorney I met at Starbucks said only 5 % of Americans have masters degrees. I am not sure of that figure but it I sure deters one from getting ahead. I have some great interviews but when I get to that part of the education, usually the hiring manager sees it as a threat. They sometimes do not have an undergraduate degree- let alone an advanced degree.
