Pursuit of Masters 2
The Pursuit of My Masters Degree
After receiving my undergraduate degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing, I had pondered the thought of continuing my education with a Masters Degree, because, let’s face it, I had no direction of where I wanted to go in life. And at the age of twenty-five, that was a little scary to say the least. So when the opportunity arose to make more money than anyone else I graduated with came along, I jumped at the chance, even though I knew somewhere, deep down inside, that it was a dead-end, going-nowhere job, instead of a move-up the ladder, advancement career. Three years later, here I am, in pursuit of my Masters in Business Administration due to the fact that I want more in life, to achieve my personal goals, and find that ladder to climb.

You’re observant, cool, unpretentious, and highly pragmatic. Possible career as a commercial artist, racing-car driver, chiropractor, firefighter, pilot. (Pearson)” In the past year and a half, I had been talking to pilots about their chosen career path and what it takes to accomplish such a feat. But, needless to say, with my poor vision and chronic ear problems, the dreams slowly faded. Then I saw “race car driver”, and my heart lifted because I have always been a car enthusiast, not particularly in the sense of racing, but test driving the new and improved vehicles. With that goes the responsibility of writing reviews of these “state-of-the-art vehicles”, and that’s where “Journalism” came into the picture when I looked at the results of “Jungian 16-Type: INFP.”
