    My wife is a teacher in Nassau County and it is near impossible to get a job teaching around here now.

    BT in Criminal Investigations. I'll graduate with a MSEd in School Counseling in May.

    EHubbard, I'm in NY as well and the market for any type of school employment is awful right now. I think I'm going to have to move out of state to find a job.

    I'm either going to do that or get into another field. We'll see. I have no idea right now.

    Nice spectrum of degrees in here. Interesting. I think I might want to make my minor some field of Psychology. Every time I read anything that is psychology-related I am extremely intrigued.

    what's your reasoning here f=ma? are you planning on becoming a teacher? from what i know, passing the CPA exam without actually doing any work in the public sector is virtually worthless. if you have the credit hours it takes to sit for the exam you're not going to see anything on there that surprises you. to be honest, the majority of the exam is worthless garbage that you'll never need to know again.

    A.A.S. Fire Science
    EMT-I, will be P in a while, then maybe RN.
    Firefighter-II

    Still schooling though. Taking classes of interest right now. Not really shooting for another degree or cert right now. When I make my move to a fire department from the police department, I'd like to get my RN after that so I can work some overtime in the ER on my off days. Good experience and great pay.

    Just curious why you're making a switch from PD to FD.

    I think it just comes down to what I personally enjoyed doing more. I had a more positive experience in the FD before I made that switch. The lifestyle is a lot better for me. 24 on 48 off is great. I feel that firefighting is more of a hands on, scientific job, and that's what I like. Medicine is always changing, and fire sciences just seems to linger on forever. Plus the brother hood involved in firefighting is much tighter. You work with a group of guys that actually become family. It just appeals more to me. I guess another thing would be the feeling of no progress. Crime is getting worse, there's fewer "good" places anymore. I used to believe in preventitive police work but no so much anymore. You police one area back up and then another one falls. The people don't care what they do, parents don't care about their own kids. I understand it's my own fault for getting down on it, and I really don't have many days in a year where I feel that way. Just nights like tonight...really beat me down. With the fire side, you can honestly help prevent tradgedy. You can help prevent health related illnesses, you can help prevent a fire. Plus there's nothing like swinging a sledge hammer at a wall during overhaul, great cardio workout right there!

    MA in English Literature and History of Art (joint honours).
    MA in History of Art (work in progress).

    I decided this year not to apply for a phd though - its time to earn some money. I've been in school long enough.

    Do what you enjoy. I did no art or art history at high school, and am not very artistic. It was a subject I knew nothing about. I took up history of art as an extra class in first year, then found it so interesting that I gradually changed my degree so I could incorporate it. Now I'm doing another masters just in history of art. I changed my whole direction in life because of a course I ended up on by accident.

    I would hate that. Both critical theory and continental philosophy wind me up no end. I don't see the point in idolising Badiou.

    Its a bit more than that. No one is idolizing anyone and this shows a misunderstanding of what is going on in postmodernism.

    I want to be a serious writer and contributor in the coming academic and social movement. Some call it postsecularism, postderridian, postheideggerian etc... but to this end, we must come to grips with what has been done to English, Religion and Philosophy in the postmodern period if we are to continue to grow and understand the phenomena that is taking place and will be taking place. Critical theory and continental philosophy are not things to be understood like history (although I realize history is more than this)... they are the tools we need, as a community, as scholars, to jump to the next platform, as it were. A scholar in today's society needs to be able to come to grips with continental philosophy because it has formed the period we are currently working in and is the ladder rung we need to continue thought. If we cannot understand that then we will be lost in the wash when it comes to working with materials that have formed western thought (The Bible, Platonic Canon, Tibetan Book of the Dead, Bhagavad Gita, Tao Teh Ching, Aristotle, Pre-Socratics, Cicero, St. Augustine, Quintilian, Shakespeare, Derrida, Heidegger, Nietzsche etc...) and thereby be out of time and arbitrary.

    I realize you did not prod expecting this kind of answer but I felt a need to justify my position after reading your response.

    its a pipe dream, but I would like to enter the FBI as a special agent under the cpa admissions program. if i cant pull it off, I'll probably go public to get the big 4 experience. i'm actually almost done with the cpa - only FAR remains, which I took a few weeks ago.

    not a pipe dream at all. funny you would mention that. my younger brother is also a CPA and has been working at a public firm for the last two years. he's looking to get out and just finished phase 2 of his FBI admissions. he's got to make it through one more phase and he's in. according to him they're always looking for CPA's.
