Haha. It really has been a long time. Mycotopia has never left my mind the whole time.
I found out recently that you DO NOT have to go to and graduate trade school/technical college with a certificate to apply for apprenticeships, so I'm looking into applying for those.
These days, transferring to a state college with my associates degree won't guarantee me a decent paying job if I go to get my bachelors.
The money is in the trades, and this country (USA) desperately needs intelligent people going into the trades.
Most apprenticeships around here I've seen for various trades start pay at around $18 to $25 an hour TO START and the only requirements are pass a drug test, be a legal resident for at least a year, and be physically capable of doing the job.
For some reason, NOBODY wants to do these jobs these days. I guess the whole "Everyone must go to college and hard labor is beneath me" way of thinking has something to do with it.
My therapist is also about to refer me to a program that works only with people who have a mental illness. The program works with you to help you find a better job, go back to school/qualify for any grants, or go to learn a trade.
So I've got my eyes on getting into some sort of trade that's in demand where I live. I certainly don't mind hard work and I've still been doing a very physical job all this time and doing well in it. It just doesn't pay much like a trade/apprenticeship will.
Everything else has been great for a while for me. I've been healthy and really have no complaints.
But it is that time of year so maybe I'll be doing another small-time grow to enjoy the Summer a bit more and perhaps revisit the mushrooms to help give me a nudge in some guidance for the future.
