Where am I ? How did I get here? There are real writers at the Examiner, people who know about past participles, the pluperfect tense, epostulatory corpuscles and the like. I was that kid in English class who kept his head down in the vain hope that the teacher would never call on him.

So how did I get here? This writing journey began about 20 years ago when Don Feigel, the editor of an amateur radio newsletter, asked if I could contribute some articles. I’m a professional electronics technician, so I was interested in the tech side, but the pieces quickly devolved into comedy. I found a character, earnest but not overly bright, who may not be far removed from my own. It’s been a merry downhill run ever since.

Somehow we have been programmed to believe that the only way to wealth and success is through the Education system. Now don’t get me wrong, Employment is still important. We all need to communicate and in order to perform basic daily functions, we need to understand how to communicate, or add and subtract.

Why does the grad school decision take so much thought? Because of the different life dynamics that are more than likely at play. For undergrad, you were a teenager with no string attached to anything that you did. Now, more than likely you’re a professional with obligations (i.e. bills, jobs, children) to meet on a regular basis. You’re time and money is much more precious now, so understand exactly what you’re getting into is a must.

First of all, have a clear picture of what you want to get your advance degree in. Graduate school is far more focused in scope than undergrad. You don’t have wiggle room to try and sample courses. If you haven’t decided on what career path you’ll take, then stay out of school until you do. Grad school is too expensive to play around with if you don’t know what path you want to end up on. To get further clarity on your career choice, speak to someone that has the job you are looking for. They can give you all the tips and pointers to pick the right program for you. Hopefully you can keep them along as a mentor so that you have a contact through school and beyond.

Students have to provide their residence proof and enrollment number for getting the approval. Some lenders demand the information about the college to give the financial help.

What will be discussed? Feel friend to come up with an agenda ahead of time if you wish. This does not have to be written down or in stone but its good to have an idea where the discuss will be going to prevent tangents and random talks. Remember a friendship meeting has a motive or agenda unlike those days when you go shoot pool or shop on a Saturday afternoon.

Successful forex trading is a combination of method and mindset that come together to get an edge and then give you the mindset to execute it for success.
