Maybe I arrived late, but what did you major in, and will it be hard for you to launch a career in your chosen field? How will it affect your writing? Will it help by giving you new ideas and different ways of looking at things and the world in general or take you away from that and focus you more on your chosen path?
So many questions and all because you announced you're now a college grad... which is one heck of an accomplishment and one to be proud of. Regardless of my inquizzitive mind, here's hoping everything works out for the best.
I graduated in physics with astronomy as a chosen field of interest. The way I hear it, my current education is equivalent to a master's degree in most countries. Physics has definitely given me an interesting way of looking at the world, especially if I will have science-fiction stories on my agenda. At the moment, I'm looking forward to doing something that has nothing to do with physics.
And while I agree that a job may take more of one's time than going to school, work does create money while going to school doesn't. I daresay my job will not be so exhaustive on my imagination as studying physics was. That is why I don't intend to find an insanely high-pay job which would occupy my life completely, but instead something that I can do with relative ease. I already send my CV to a company looking for a marketing analyst; churning numbers has always been a very relaxing thing to me.
