    Who in their right mind decided to study further? :(

    Anyone (like me) writing exams at the moment?

    I would much rather be reading and exploring MASA than Studying Economics.

    1 exam down three to go!:yeahdude:

    But think of it this way... The better your qualification, the better job you can get. Which means the more money you'll earn, which in turn means, the more money you can spend on your next bigger, better fish tank...

    You nailed it - with my law degree I think I can get a 'nicer bigger' tank when finished.:thumbup:

    What makes anyone else study?

    Yep i believe you have to further your studies, matric just wont cut it these days, unless u lucky enough to start your own business or something, tertiary education forms the basis of a career, not a job.

    Yip, agree matric does not cut it.

    Busy doing a ICDL course that finishes next year Feb, wrote my first exam on Saturday and was pretty easy, got 94%. But so not looking forward to the others and the worst part of it, I need 75% on all my exams to pass.

    When done with this course, going to study Computer Programming and hopefully I can get in to UWC so that I can do my Masters.:thumbup:

    After finishing Matric I did a 2 year programming thingy.
    Then I did Bcom Informatics. Stopped studying for 3 years, and then I did Cisco CCNA.
    Now I'm finishing LPI 1, 2 and 3 and then end of next year will write my RHCE :)

    You need to keep on studying to keep ahead of the pack :)

    It took some doing, but my two daughters are finishing MSc and BSc this year... which means that from next year I might have some more money to spend on my tank :thumbup:

    I am studying BCom Law Through Unisa. After that I want to obtain my LLB - Better route . I want to go into contract law - Business side.

    I am writing economics next week and Thursday - and then the Monday BManagement and Law after that. Three subject in one week - HEctic

    This all with two little critters vying for mommy's attention! ;)
    A stressfull job and only three days study leave a year! I go to work in the morning - go write and return to work. I need my normal leave for when the nursery school closes in December.

    I think things get a bit hectic - so if you walk into my house - pardon the mess at the moment - I do not have time to pick up the toys (I do not have a domestic).
    :whistling:

    At the moment ECS 1028 and hopefully my last - I am not up to redo the Keynesian Model AGAIN if I fail - All I want is 50% in Economics - Just a pass. At least I got an average of 76% for all my assignments (4 of them).:thumbup:

    Diveshan - You actually mean Dudette don't you?:lol:

    he he. Not good. Hated it when I had to do school projects for the kids (I still hate it) and they come home with less than 90%. It reflects directly onto my input....lol

    But next year is another story. I'll just hear about the marks:thumbup:
