  •  Bravo! (4+ / 0-)

    I'm 49 years old and am nearing the end of a Masters program in Public Policy.  I had worked in IT for 25 years and had gotten tired of 1) how other people do it 2) being bounced around from job to job like an itinerant worker (IT needs unionization).  I decided I wanted to become an energy expert and help us through the next few decades' transitions - if nothing else, by just telling the story of how we got here, where we are, and where we can decide to go.  

    My time in school has been among the most rewarding periods of my life.  I've gotten to use parts of my brain that I wasn't getting to use in IT and I feel appreciated in ways I wasn't in IT.  And I've made some wonderful friends.
