    I was offered to apprentice further with my company upon graduation if I so please. It's a great opportunity, especially given the shortage of skilled people in this field; however, I am now torn between what to do after school. I have three great options (continue where am at, grad school or apprentice with a different firm that has expressed interest). I feel this has all led to a quasi existential crisis, as I feel pressured to seek out what I want out of life and what sort of lifestyle I want to live. If I go to graduate school, I will come out with a job in which I spend 9 months out of the year away from home, and I'm not 100% sure that is what I want. Ain't sure if I want a family or marriage one day, and I should not be thinking of such things now, but I feel pressured to do so.

    You forgot a nice Chianti, in case it becomes an "Alive" type situation.

    Pickling can be very effective.

    Still reeling from this revelation?

    Happy birthday, pops.

    I don't understand how this works. How do you cook kale without pork?

    You yuppies know nothing of greens...

    You'd be hard-pressed to find someone older than JLib.
