It took a while (long, long years) to land in my current field, education. I graduated during Reaganomics, and a "good job" meant one with a paycheck, even if that meant driving a bus or slinging hash. I got pretty good at both. I fear for my daughter, heading into her senior year during this recession.

I couldn't get a decent job. As one prospective employer told me, "You know, history majors are a dime a dozen." Thanks. I needed that. I ended up enlisting in the US Navy finally, so I could earn a living wage and pay off my student loans. Oh, and meet my husband. It was a pretty neat experience all around, actually. Met a lot of interesting people and learned a lot about an entire segment of our society that remains a mystery to most of us.
