Quickest Way to Qualify for a Good Paying Job

10 September, 2012 (20:31) | Uncategorized | By: admin

I have started thinking about what I shall do in a couple of years when I graduate from High School. I really do not think that a real college is what I want, although I do like the idea of lots of girls 18 to 23 who are away from their parents for the first time. I could see myself enjoying college way too much in fact. It is just the sort of person I am. I like girls and I do not mind partying. However I need to do something more practical and 2 year colleges are what I am thinking about now. I know my parents can not really afford to pay for me to go party for four or five years without accomplishing anything. Instead I shall try to figure out what I want to do for a job. I am thinking hard about learning something about computers. That is something you could learn in a short time and have a huge opportunity for earning money.

I am thinking about computers because of my friend’s brother. He went to a technical college for a couple of years and now he’s making around 40 thousand a few years later. He is really good with computers and always was, even when he was in High School. I am okay with computers and I am interested in them. To earn a good living you just have to be good at making computer networks run or programming computers. Perhaps you could get by making web pages if you could find clients who needed to have pages built. Jack used to make web pages for small businesses and he made a fair amount of money just doing that in his Mom’s basement while he was in school. He drove an almost new Celica. I’d be happy with that right now.

Tutoring for a Nine Year Old Home Student

7 September, 2012 (00:30) | Uncategorized | By: admin

We decided long ago that it would be better for us to home school Jack Jr and his sister Marcy. Marcy is still only six, but she can read at a third grade level and is quite proficient in arithmetic, geography and basic science. He brother is nine years old and shall be ten in about six weeks. Already he is learning differential calculus, although we are not responsible. He simply decided that he could not be an astronaut if he did not learn to do calculus. I guess we need online tutoring from someone who is good with kids, because Jack Jr is still a kid and he can be a handful. He is quite serious about becoming an astronaut and then going to Mars, which of course will probably require a lot of math and a lot of science.
