Woo! I have quit. No more commuting to Nottingham*

Instead I shall be exploring "How to spend £30k I don't have on my career". Wish me luck.

* After mid-September anyway.

Good luck!

How are you spending the £30k?
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: July 7th, 2008 06:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
The plan is MBA at Aston. Assuming I get in and the money does roughly materialise.
nyarbaggytep From: nyarbaggytep Date: July 7th, 2008 06:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
I thought you already did an MBA? I'm confused.
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: July 7th, 2008 06:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
I've done a couple of courses that could count towards one with the OU. But there'd still be 2-3 years of part-time study left to complete it, as well as the time constraint. So rather than slog through a job and study...
nyarbaggytep From: nyarbaggytep Date: July 7th, 2008 07:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ahh, I understand, I think that's wise. Will your components already done count in any way?
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: July 7th, 2008 07:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
Possible, but unlikely.

I'll keep my fingers crossed.

OOh what ya doing? Are you going back to uni??
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: July 7th, 2008 06:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
Applying to do an MBA. It seems like a good idea...
ayrton_nix From: ayrton_nix Date: July 7th, 2008 06:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
Cool!

Best of luck with the MBA. I thought that you had one via the OU already, or am I most confused about that?
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: July 7th, 2008 06:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
I have done a couple of courses that could be MBA components with the OU.
davefish From: davefish Date: July 7th, 2008 08:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
Probably won't hurt to have covered some of the ground already.

Hope the course gets you to where you want to be.

You don't need luck my friend.

Pissing away £30K on a career is easy. It's stopping at £30K that's the difficult part.

Well done you.

Well done. It takes guts to make a move like that but it is a great thing. all the absolute luck

Fantastic news. I can't imagine you having trouble getting in, so all the best in getting the monies!

Good luck. I hope that writing that resignation letter was satisfying. ;-)

Cool. Commuting is horrible.

Why is your course so expensive?
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: July 8th, 2008 06:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
Because people will pay it...

I guess I'll miss all those times we met up for lunch while you were in Notts ;-)
