Long-time followers of my blog will know I was completing a Graduate Diploma of Applied Finance. Well last week I stepped onstage at the Ivy Ballroom (weird location for a graduation, right??) and collected my certificate. I'm not sure how an Applied Finance post-grad qualification + an IT undergrad qualification is meant to help me at a Legal publishing company but I'm sure I've done stranger things.
I even got a University-branded business card holder as a reward for forking over $10,000 and sacrificing many hours and weekends to study. I shouldn't be so cynical, it's all for my own education.... unless I didn't learn anything??
After this, I have decided to stay away from study for a while (apart from maybe a Project Manager certification next year?). Maybe one day down the track I'll decide to do an MBA but certainly not anytime soon. My boyfriend and I are study-ed out (he's a fancy pants and has a Masters of Applied Finance but he actually works in Finance which is a bit more helpful. And no we didn't study together - we actually did it at different Unis. No idea why. Add that to the list of stupid things I've done).
