About us

We are a hard working, family of eight. Swimming in the sea when we aren't busy on our small holding. Daddy dragon has to work away a lot, so this blog is to let him keep up with our adventures at home.

Ugly truthes

go chase your dreams.jpg

I am not anti - education, far from it.

But here are some ugly truths:

A degree will not offer job security. 

Or even a job.

Universities are not charities helping people in need, they are businesses.

Many jobs would rather hire someone with four years experience in the field than someone who has only ever read books about it.

Don't buy the myth.

It is terribly expensive.

Just make an educated choice before signing up on this one.


  1. And also don't think that our degree choice will mean that you will be doing that job years later.. I have a degree in Applied Biochemistry and I work as an administrator!!!


  2. Too true! I don't know many people who do the exact thing they set out to do long term. Life has a funny way of guiding us to exactly where we are meant to be. Despite our protests! :D
