I think a handful have misunderstood me.
I am not opposed to hard work.
I really am just looking for ideas of jobs that pay better than retail (17k a year) , that I can do for the time being to be able to afford to go back to school. If this means saving up to go back, fine. If this means the job pays enough that I can afford to work fewer hours and take some classes, I am down for that too.
I am not opposed to college, I just don't know if I learn as well in that setting as I might in some other one.
Teger, I am not familiar with the east coast, and have only briefly visited CA and the Upper NW... I couldn't do either. It might not make sense, but people I encountered were of a completely different mentality than I feel I myself am. Nothing against those places or the people in them, I just don't feel they'd be a good fit for me. Thanks for the suggestion though, there is plenty of opportunity on the coasts I am sure.
I do need to start to take more pictures of Coke lore I notice around. I doubt much of what I found interesting would really be of much interest to Coke... it never hurts to try though.
Honestly though, what does a person like say Lynn Downey (levis) or Phil Mooney (Coca-Cola), historians/archivists study to get their jobs?
