I just started my new french class. I paid 250 dollars for seven weeks of courses and I do believe it will take my mid-intermediary level french to the next level, as long as I take initive and work a bit at home. The course is located at the YMCA. I am a big supporter of the YMCA. The ones in Montreal are amazing. The quality of everything they offer is surprisingly good. I cannot comment on all YMCAs, but I have been pleasantly surprised by ours.
While I was sitting in my class though, after explaining who I was and why I was taking this french course to all the students, I realized that my life sort of feels still right now. I feel like my life has slowed down so much since college. Graduate school was pretty slow rolling and for the most part isolating. I got my degree but I feel no different, and worse yet, not particularly better qualified for most jobs in my domain. It feels like I am over qualified for so many positions and yet under certified for so many others. I am dying to find a job that keeps me busy, social, allows to contribute to world, yet also brings in enough revenue that I can live well.
I am not complaining. I am happy with my life. I just feel so ready to start my career. Hopefully this course is the final investment to give me a boost.
