After struggling for years to hold down a career, I finally started to think about going back to school. I could tell that I was going to have a hard time with school unless I tried something different, so I started investigating trade schools as an alternative to traditional college. I was nervous about the idea of going back, but a friend of mine convinced me that trade school was a fun, direct path into a better job--as opposed to traditional college, which involved all kinds of general education classes. After enrolling, I could see a very real difference. This blog is all about how trade school leads to more enjoyable work.
