I know. Urgh. No one's posted at me yet, I don't think, but I've had THREE teachers telling me I can't be a freelance novelist unless I have a degree in English. An answer to that from me is a hell no; I am NOT wasting four full years of my life dealing with a subject I suck in.
Being a sign language interpreter is something I'd like to do as long as it doesn't require too much extensive traveling, but that would require another four years due to the fact that in 2012 they're making a bachelor's degree the required... uh. Thing. (Not sure what the proper word is, sorry! ^^; ) instead of the original associate's. I can handle that, because I have fun with sign language and it's something I'm fairly adept at doing; though I do have a problem with "stammering". Meaning: My arm jumps around during finger spelling, minor hand signs, etc.
