I have been tossing around the idea of going to school again.  History would be the major, in the hopes of making myself more useful to society than I currently am.  In a perfect world, I would be able to get a Masters degree or maybe even a (don't say it) Doctorate and become an actual Historian, but I live in the real world and realize that if I were to attain to those levels in education, it would need God's massive hand working and not just my own endeavoring.  In the meantime, I am seeking out that which will be most pleasing to me, namely a basic college education.  Enough about me though.  I have been praying and thinking much for quite sometime about all of this.  I have emailed some friends (older and wiser) to see what they have had to say to me about it.  There are a great many obstacles and I cannot decipher as to whether they were placed there to keep me from doing this, or if they were put there to show me how much I truly desire this, seeing how I am still leaning in that direction despite all of the opposition.  At any rate, the Lord is ever guiding me along through life and I can be certain that whether I succeed or fail He is leading me to something a million times greater than any education in this life could get me.
