Sometimes I wonder about this burning urge to study Ancient Greek History.

Because it makes me think about going to uni. XD

Hands up anyone who thinks ANY university with a major in that would be interested in taking me.

Nobody? Thought not. XD

(I didn't go to uni for a reason. And the pay I get when I have a job (eheh) more than makes up for it. So WHY do I want to study Greek History??)

The problem is that I'm hard pressed to find ANYWHERE that teaches the things I'm interested in. :P There are all of four unis in the UK that teach Japanese to degree level, for instance. And some of those lie to UCAS about their entry requirements. I think some teach normal Greek History with a branch that would enable you to then specialise in the Ancient stuff though. Although if you do get a degree in it, all it leaves you to do afterwards is teach or write books...

The fact that any random degree can enable me to teach in Japan never fails to amuse me. :D

Most degrees count for nothing in the end, as my irregular bitching should have told you already. The only degrees that really seem to carry any weight are business, engineering and sciences. But since they're dull and lead to dull jobs it's having one (in any subject) that counts.

As for teaching or writing, well the first is scary as hell but so much more fun than any other job I've done, and the second is what most nanoers aspire to, so where's the downside? :P

And yeah, that whole a degree in anything to teach in Asia is somewhat crazy, but suits me fine :)
