5 marks for me.A mere five marks more would have made me doctor.Now I am in business though I am fine and happy.

hmm.. i think there is one thing... our life situation. we needed money at the time i graduated and was barely eating 2 meals a day. so i grabbed on the first job offered to me and here i am still at that work. ( i have been promoted twice over the span of 6 years - which is good) but i sometimes wished maybe if i waited a bit longer and went to find a better job, i would have gone abroad already

Since you are happy now I think you have made a right decision.There is always scope for improvement in whatever position one is in.All the best.

hmmm...thinking...thinking...thinking. I can't think of one single reason. For me there are so many....my circumstances, my thinking, my responsibilities, my upbringing...actually it's a mix of these and many more. But I can speak for my husband....and he's a pharmacologist today and working towards his PhD. He would have been a medical doctor if his father had checked the rank list for the medical entrance properly. They assumed he hadn't got through will in fact he had. So, he had to choose second best...and went in for pharmacy. But he's happy where he is now (his own business and a professor at college)...and is a mini doctor..lol

I am happy that everyone is happy in the end.Yes these kind of small things are the spots where the life tends to take diversion towards a new course in everyone's life.

I never had the chance to go to college but if I would have, I would have chose to be an interior designer or a computer technician. I have worked alot of part-time jobs and a few full time jobs but people in those workplaces drove me nuts over the years. I now work at home because of it.

Yes some talents are getting polished and enhanced by going to the proper schools.Anyhow I am happy that you are pursuing your passion from home.Experience itself is a big school.All the best.
