Today’s prompt is – “degree/degrees.”
It’s all a matter of degree. You hear it all the time.
The chance of winning the lottery, success in study and in life it all depends on a few variables that happen to us to prevent is succeeding or allowing us to.
A man gets run over on a crossing and we say he was in the wrong place at the wrong time, what bad luck.
I have the urge to prattle on about this word its one of those terms that touches you in so many ways.
I have a degree, it was hard fought I have to say; I had little kids at the time and not a lot of time to study. Thankfully I was doing it by correspondence and I was able to have a week at university during my term break.
In some ways it was a holiday, a break away from the kids, the wife, a chance to met up with new friends, drink a bit, study without interruption, and I did a couple of times.
Through sheer good luck I often think I gained a University Degree, it meant extra money in my pay, at the time that was my sole motivation for doing it.
Later on I wish I had had the opportunity to pursue further study, I did do a few diploma type courses, one offs to qualify me to teach subjects that were new in our curriculum.
So most of our lives is a series of degree moments, which determine whether or not we’ll go mad, or be a raging success in life.
