Light Blogging This Week, But ...

by Steve Lackmeyer Published: December 22, 2009

I’ll have a pretty moving post from the past for Christmas, and I’ll pop up a predictions post as well.
Since this blog has always been more of a discussion amonst friends and acquaintances (OK, a lot of friends and acquaintances, sometimes folks with different ideas), I’m going to let you on something I’m trying to deal with right now.
The question is, do I return to school? Yes, I’ve got journalism degree, but I have no idea where the world is heading. For several years I’ve found myself delving more and more into city history. I love reading about world and United States history.
I’m contemplating taking a night course or two each semester and slowly working toward a masters degree in history.
I would love to continue doing what I’m doing. But with a family, and in the world we live in, it just seems prudent to keep one’s options open.
I’ve seen good talented friends lose their jobs this past year. These are people I couldn’t have imagined being out of work. It all gets you thinking – and thanking God for what you’ve got.
The next decade promises to be just as exciting as the last for downtown, and it’s my hope I’ll continue to be in a position to sort through it all for you the readers.
