A Practical Approach To Choosing A Degree

Investing in your education is never bad. With a degree, you’ll find it easier to make ripples in any field. You’ll also have knowledge to lean on as you start in the daunting world of work. When choosing a degree in the modern world, though, it’s important to think things through.

University education no longer guarantees a job. Many uni leavers have no choice but to head into low paying jobs with no relation to their studies. After so much time and debt, that can be a hard pill to swallow.

The good news is, taking a practical approach to the degree you choose could stop this happening to you. You could argue that impractical degrees are the primary cause of this problem. To ensure you don’t make the same mistake, consider the following options before settling.


Look to the future

Far from being all about essays and education, a degree should be a step towards your future.
As such, this is the first thing worth considering. Ultimately, of course, you should pick a subject you’re passionate about. It is worth noting, though, that you should spare a thought to where that course could take you. Often, this is as simple as laying out a clear career plan. Those who take classes such as archeology, for instance, should be clear about what they wish to do with that. They should also be aware of what they need to do to achieve it. Failure to think ahead is often what leads to those years of studying failing to result in a career of any note.

Fit study around your life
Often, disillusionment also comes about as a result of getting caught in uni life. It can be disorienting to surround yourself in studies, and then finding yourself out in the cold. The best way around this would be to get out in the real world while you’re studying. On a practical level, that also ensures you can earn money while learning. This could mean studying part-time and working on the side. It could even mean studying online. If you’re already out in the working world, it may also be worth considering a course which will further the career you’re in. A nurse, for instance, may wish to advance their degree with a nursing bachelor. The best way to achieve that would be to sign up for something like this rn to bsn online program. That way, you already have the footing of a career, but open yourself for promotion and pay rises at the same time.


Be sure this is what you want

On a fundamental level, it’s also worth being sure this path leads to what you want. Many students dedicate years to study they don’t fully intend to follow. While most employers will look kindly on any degree, that will mean wasting your time to a large extent. Don’t let it happen by being sure that the subject you study could lead to a career you’ll be happy in.

Outfit Post – So Crazy So Beautiful

I asked my son what he thought of my new hairstyle and he said it is so crazy so beautiful! His response made me giggle and that is what inspired the title of the post. I like to find inspiration in my day-to-day life and my kids inspire me in so many ways.

These photos were taken a few days ago. The weather was good, so I decided to make the most of it and wear a dress without tights. In a few weeks, rocking bare legs won’t be possible, so I am making the most of the not so cold weather. Autumn can be so up and down. One minute it is freezing cold and we all have our heating on, and the next thing it is 18 degrees and we have our windows open. The weather is so crazy so beautiful sometimes.

The black dress is a new wardrobe addition. I got it as a week some weeks ago. It is a great quality piece. I adore the fabric of the dress and the style. You can never have too many little black dresses. There will always be room for more and this stunning skater black dress confirms the saying. I love the design at the front. It took the dress to a whole new level.

It was dead easy to style this black piece. I settled on the black shoes and leopard print blazer because that was the look I was going for. The gold clutch bag also complemented the outfit beautifully. I am feeling this outfit a lot!

The Kiddies Review YELLIES

October is here and that means Halloween is around the corner. And the kiddies are having fun yelling with YELLIES! My twins love playing with toys especially when they are new and shiny. So they were super excited when these new toys dropped on our doorstep the other day.

YELLIES is a cute colourful spider pet that responds to your voice. They are are sound-activated and respond to talking, yelling, clapping, singing, and even music. Great toys for loud toddlers like mine!

The kiddies got Klutzers – the green and orange spider, as well as Toofy Spooder – the purple spider. And they have been very busy with them. My boy has taken to Klutzers as one of his favourite colours if green, while my girl is loving Toofy Spooder as her favourite is purple. They enjoy watching the eyes of their spider pets light up. They also find how they move and respond to voices very fascinating. It is so much fun to watch them play with their new YELLIES. 

I found it very easy to get the YELLIES out of the pack. Some toys manufacturers make toys so difficult to unwrap with all the many fastenings but these were dead easy. I also love the fact that these spider pet toys came with 3 x 1.5V A76 alkaline batteries included already.
