I'm applying for software development jobs; if I didn't have a degree I wouldn't even be able to get my foot in the door.

Yeah kind of was exaggerating, I have a master's in information security after doing a bachelor's in computer science, and most places I'm looking for jobs in the field of cyber security/IT work literally don't care that I have them. A degree seems to mean squat compared to existing experience and actual practical skills which, having spent my time doing uni work which did not include enough practical stuff, leaves me in an annoying position of 'having the qualifications' but can't really do anything.

I mean yeah some employers probably won't look at you without a degree. I'm just salty about job hunting. Got an interview in the coming week tho so hopefully it will end.

I didn't go to uni, I did an apprenticeship instead and got 2 nvqs in business administration. Kinda wish I'd gone to uni, but at the same time, by the time I'd finished college I couldn't decide what I wanted to get a degree in. I probably would have done design or art. Now I'm just trying to get my etsy shop off the ground. It's doing okay but it could be a lot better. I think I need to advertise more.

That's just my experience though, I'm sure some degrees are more worthwhile, and I'm sure some universities are more worthwhile to go to generally. Just wish I could go back and develop actual usable skills rather than spend the time doing coursework and such. Though of course, uni was the best time of my life from the social side, so, wouldn't skip out on that.
It's fairly difficult to get into higher tiers of jobs in education without proper qualifications.

I'm doing this with specific goals in mind.

Feeling frustrated. Playing Metroid 1 for like the 5th time and finally was patient enough to figure out where I'm going and getting upgrades and stuff, but I'm slowly starting to see how broken and flawed the game is. I think the game itself is amazing and incredibly fun, but these flaws make it difficult to just play and enjoy the game. May have to resort using a guide as I'm stuck again, and just exploring is a pain. Will give it another go tho.

Freaky weather this morning, the sun went bright red and it got really dark at around 11am.

The local news said it was caused by saharan dust sucked up by the hurricane, at one point the sky resembled Fallout 4's glowing sea.

It was an alien invasion!
Then decided they couldn't be bothered.

Certainly was a bit freaky being in a back room with no window then heading out to the front where the outside was looking more like Las Vegas than Halesowen's High Street.

I've had a very traumatic weekend but it's sorting itself out now. The cats poorly and I'm sure this is obvious to anyone with pets but please make sure you have pet insurance because vets aren't cheap. Happily I'm covered but I would have been in a very difficult situation if I wasn't insured x

I don't think I've been to a Subway in general in ages. Probably once during college more than four years back.
