The dean told us at graduation, “You won’t use hardly anything you learned here. You learned how to solve problems and nobody knows what those will be.”

That turned out to be true. I didn’t know until I was in my 30’s what I liked to do. I was lucky and muddled through before that. I did spend 3 years in what appeared to be my dream profession, but it turned out to be a disaster.

I went back to my first job (not with the same company).

A degree just helps you get an interview.

I did use what I learned to get my degree (Math) occasionally, once in my first job and once in my last job before retirement.

I feel that the thought pattern of my articles follow cold, mathematical logic.
