    I Have a College Education,...

    I have a college education, which does not mean I am educated, which has educated me so I could and can compete in the world today.  In college my major was History, which I think gives me a better propective on what is happening in the world.

    How To Find A Job When There Are None

    This might help! Many people rely on "Help Wanted" advertisements to find employment. Don't! Look beyond that. There's an enormous iceberg of jobs under the surface in the U.S. economy. You can't see them because they go unfilled and other employees take up the slack...

    I Don't Get Why Everyone Is Pressured To Be Well-educated!

    I've been an all A+ student my whole life. Now I'm sick of it. Haven't even finished last year of school yet. I just don't get why everyone pushes me to be the most amazing person in the world - with the best high flying job. I just want to be a regular girl. Sucks!
