    I'm thinking of applying to a Police dispatcher job since they make about 2k-4k a month. What I'd do is this:

    1.) Work for about a year or so (probably more) and save up money (not counting what's being used to pay for rent).

    2.) Take a month long trip through Europe and parts of Russia

    3.) College

    #1 and 3 are the easiest to do. It's the second one that might be a problem. I'd have no one to go with me (my boyfriend won't leave the states :p) and I have only so many friends in other countries.

    But on a whole, what do you guys think?

    Possibly. I'm going to school regardless.

    Screw the 'education' part, just be an English major! You get to read books and discuss philosophy and stuff like that all the time, then when you graduate, you have no job-related skills at all! :D

    I feel one of those 'pregnant story' moments coming on, I will resist the urge! There is one 8th grader today that is the screaming advertisement for not arming teachers, principals, or custodians! :laugh:

    I hear these "pregnant stories" all the time from teachers. I'm quite aware of the dangers and disappointments to come. That's why I'd work at a private school ;)
