I just had to celebrate this with y'all!
I feel so accomplished. I feel like I'm rewriting the story of who I am and what I'm capable of achieving.
I am so wildly excited to be working with people as they uncover their true potential for growth, healing, love, and connection.
I feel potent and powerful today, reddit friends.
Thanks for celebrating with me!
Sincere love and well wishes 🙏❤️
I'll save you the majority of the sob story, but basically my whole life was very hard and stressful and then ~8 years of my life (17-25) were pretty much robbed from me due to an extremely scary and abusive relationship on top of a myriad of health issues.
I never graduated from high school and have never gone to college. In my entire life I have only had one job (with very sporadic/off-and-on employment) that is remote/online and, without explaining what it is exactly, is basically just customer service. This was partially due to being under the control of my abusive ex, and partially because that whole situation gave me excruciating anxiety and I couldn't bear to work around and with a bunch of people. I am in therapy, btw.
My resume would be microscopic and I don't know what to do from here. I am so unbelievably far behind in life and in desperate need of some drastic life changes before it's too late. First things first, I know I should get my GED. Next, I know I should prob... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hi guys, this was the first story I tried to post on entitledparents, but it was immediately removed because my account was less than 4 days old, and I promptly forgot all about it until now.
So here it is. Tl;dr at the bottom.
[I had a weird upbringing in a cult that I have tried to explain a couple times, but it's so complicated, I couldn't get it concise enough and I had to erase it. I think I will just stick to this one story for now and if you want to hear more about what my family believed, you can ask me any questions you have and I can answer your them in the comments. Even so, this is going to be a long, crazy story, so.... brace yourself.]
My mom was what's known as a covert narcissist. That's where they are super sweet and wonderful whenever someone else is around, but at home, their true colors rip through their mask and they demand that the world revolve around them.
Part of what we believed required our family to have as many children as possible and as the olde... keep reading on reddit ➡

I'm planning on transitioning to software development, after learning front-end web development on the side for the past year. I suffered from depression during college which resulted in me graduating with a 2.2 degree in business and law, but as far as I can tell I am still eligible for the Springboard program. I'm 28 right now and have 25k in savings, plus my parents are willing to let me live at home, so instead of doing a two-year part-time course, I'm looking to do a one-year full-time course, while learning as much as possible in my free time as well to improve my skills and build up a portfolio.
I've gone through all the courses I could find that offer one-year courses, so I would appreciate it if anyone could comment on what the course is like and which one they would recommend.

As the world becomes more specialized, the working class is struggling to keep up with the growing demands of the world. Almost every middle-skill job nowadays requires a bachelor’s degree minimum, and many more are demanding a master’s. It’s such bullshit that we’re forced to piss away thousands of dollars on college degrees, especially when most of them aren’t marketable or particularly useful.
We need to give people some breathing room. Go back to requiring a high school diploma, and that’s it. Sure, a mechanical engineer or brain surgeon needs a degree, but why in the holy fuck does a car salesman? It’s a pointless and unfair filter. (And this is coming from someone with a bachelor’s in communications)
I had an idea of taking certifications like ccna, compTIA in my spare time so that I can transition to an IT career..
I've been managing the network of a small business for many years, and have been a security enthusiast since backtrack R2 was a thing. I did a year of computer science in university, learned C programming, algorithm design, linear algebra. That was 10 years ago. I didn't finish and don't want to be in school again. So what say ye?
Update: Thank you all for your replies and stories, they gave me a lot of confidence to pursue this career. I'm going to start with the CompTIA path (network+, security+) and go from there. Once again thank you all!
I study 5th year of the Faculty of Economics at the Technical University of Ostrava VŠB-TUO, Field Marketing and Business. I’ve chosen Canada, where I lived for a year. I had an amazing time and experienced first-hand the nature of Canadian people.

Other than being a good person, serving others, contributing to my community (including the LGBTQ+ community), and encouraging thoughtful discussion in person and online, I'm really not sure what else to do to make a difference in the BYU debacle, other than follow /u/all-american-angel's example of returning my diploma (ETA: and the other list of things posted earlier this week, like contacting sponsors, etc).
But is it possible to truly, and permanently, revoke/rescind/vacate/void my diploma? And would anyone outside of BYU care?
Not just temporarily. I want it to be as if I never attended/graduated from BYU.
I'm envisioning the equivalent of a mass-resignation event, but for BYU diplomas. Notify the press, get as many people there as possible, and walk into the Administration building to return our diplomas permanently and irrevocably. Show the world that there are BYU alumni who are willing to put skin in the game.

I graduated high school in Oklahoma, 2007. Hands shook, congratulations given, diploma awarded, and sent on my way. Shortly after completing school I joined the military and I’ve worked for the gov’t on some level ever since. Recently, I decided it was time to tackle some higher education. While contacting my old school to get transcripts sent over to the college I was informed that the transcripts indicate that I dropped out of school. “Nonsense!”, I tell them. “I have a diploma from the school!” The lady on the other line seemed as confused as I was. I emailed her pictures of the diploma, and was assured that the principal and superintendent of the district were taking it seriously and looking into it. The next day I received an email that said something like, “Supporting documents that accompany your transcript get destroyed after 5-7 years, so this is going to be tough, but we’ll continue to look into it.”
Not really the response I was hoping for, but I guess at very least they’re... keep reading on reddit ➡
Egy mai posztra reagálva valaki kifejtette, hogy szerinte valójában mennyire értéktelen egy IT-s diploma.
Mivel a subon eléggé sokan dolgoznak ebben a szakmában, gondoltam megér egy threadet ez a kérdés. Második féléves vagyok programtervező informatikán, elég jól haladok, és viszonylag tetszik is amit tanulok. Viszont sokszor úgy érzem, hogy ha annyit foglalkoznék magával a programozással, mint amennyit különböző, vagy jelentéktelen vagy hihetetlenül elavult tárggyal foglalkozom, 3 év alatt sokkal többre jutnék.
Tehát a kérdésem nem csak arra vonatkozik, hogy jelentkezésnél mennyire “nézik” a diplomát, hanem hogy a nem informatikával kapcsolatos tárgyakból szerzett tudás mennyire hasznos szoftverfejlesztőként. Azért jó lenne, ha nem a semmiért seggelnék ennyi matekot.
I found out that I only have 21 credits and I’m a senior. Does the tech diploma do anything and how would you explain it to a parent who thinks its the second most important thing after the diploma?

Hi guys, I just graduated in a degree double majoring Finance and Economics in December.
However, my main interest lies in the IT field. I do see myself pursuing a career in IT in the future.
Does it make more sense for me to take a certificate (1.5 years), a diploma (2 years), or another degree (3 years)?
I was initially leaning towards a certificate but was advised by many others that a diploma or a degree would make more sense as a certificate already needs 1.5 years, what is .5 or 1.5 more years?
I am currently 23 this year. Should I choose to take another degree, I would be 26 when I finish the course. Would that age be too late to start my career? Or should I save time and just undertake a certificate/diploma?
Any inputs would be appreciated!
At long last I finally SoloD Uber T beating my eternal nemesis Meph in a short destructive battle!
It’s been an expensive journey to get here!
For any Javazon wondering if it is possible it is!
With lesser gear it may take a little longer but in essence you need ideally a lvl 2 lower res wand 1 point in psn javelin and full synergies for CS
Having a 3 socket fully UMd guardian REALLY helps for the meph fight. Ensure you have ProcD beforehand and you’ve got a fighting chance!
Oh and Max block!
To kill him curse with lower res immediately after hit him with psn jav (stops his regen) then unleash CS repeat this proves however many times is needed! Ideally no more than twice in total!

I don't have my IB Diploma yet, i am in my final year of high school and the results of the tests will be received around the 10th of July. So i don't have the actual diploma to apply, can i apply anyway without it and send it to them once i receive it?
For TU Delft i sent my list of grades for the past 3 years instead of the diploma.
My boyfriend and I are from UP, different campuses. He's from Los Baños. His diploma got damaged after his part of the house flooded over a couple of years ago. Since then, he's been very scared about it getting a new one because he thinks he can't get another copy. He's also still pretty upset by what happened because now he feels like he isn't a true UP grad because he lost his original diploma.
Is there any way we can get another copy, especially for employment purposes? If so, what office should we go to and are there any flowcharts out there of the process? Thank you so much for any leads/information.

hello, i was wondering what’s the gender ratio like in the computer science foundation year/diploma/degree or in general! is it a course with an overwhelming ratio of guys over girls? (campus at clayton btw!)
or is anyone in the course willing to comment roughly how the culture is like, how it’s generally like and the people there? and how’s studying cs like? is it very exams based or more of assignments and projects? will it be manageable for someone who has never had direct contact with IT/CS stuff but is willing to learn from scratch (eg python, java etc)

I'm applying for some SSA positions and I'm noticing that a lot of the positions require you to upload a degree before submitting the application. If you try to bypass it, you get a message stating that the application won't be fully submitted until it's uploaded.

I’ve been trying to decide what to do career-wise... just really need a change. I’m currently a delivery driver (2years) and I’ve been a licensed cosmetologist for 8 years. So no related experience, however I love to learn, I enjoy nature and camping and trees and plants are cool/ interesting and so on... and I see this offered at a nearby technical college; it sounds like something I’d really enjoy. It is less hours than it took to get my cosmetology license (1500 hrs vs 1290hrs) I was wondering if a technical diploma will help me get into this field? Also if it would be the right way to go if I’m also interested in botany and mycology? Any advice would be greatly appreciated Thanks!
Hi,everyone! I'm planning to immigrate to Ontario and would like to continue my Career as an ECE teacher.

I've already got ECE diploma in Japan and have working experience at Pre-school and Kindergarten. In Japan, we can be main teacher of K-1 so I had been thinking to get a degree in Ontario to teach at Kindergarten by the time I got to know about government in Ontario.
Although I'd like to upgrade my education and get Degree, I don't know if it'll be benefit to get jobs in Canada compare to having only Ontario ECE diploma. Do you get more salary with Degree?

Will I still be an assistant soon as I get out of school? Etc,
Any advice would be much appreciated!

Etherbound is a local multiplayer sword fighting game, where 2 players duel each other on the same computer.
This game was designed to just have a little bit of lighthearted fun with your friends when you're feeling bored. Maybe you have a free period and have no idea what to do, or perhaps you have nothing to do at lunch. Go duel a friend! It's probably the most social way to be antisocial.
I'm a 16-year-old developer and I've been working on this project for 2 months now. I will try to update the game as frequently as possible. If you have any feedback or suggestions, feel free to let me know. I will almost implement almost anything you suggest (as long as it's serious).

i worked hard for a year to do all the important courses i didn’t get during the years i was out of school

So basically im 27 and have found myself wanting to further my job opportunities. I got B's and C's at GSCE and did 1 year in college doing a brickwork course which got my a level 1 diploma.
So my main question is would you recommend doing a Diploma on the Open University? Im looking at either Computing and IT or Environmental Science. Do you need to have knowledge in these topics to start a course?
Also are these Higher education diplomas going to help me get a decent job? Im on around 20k a year at the moment.
Hi. I have a bit of a unique situation here that has me stumped and I’m looking for some guidance.
I have a goal of working as a designer and/or developer. I am relatively flexible; I like programming, I like designing, but most of all, I would really like a position that has potential for remote work and little-to-no client interaction.
I am currently 25 and self-sufficient. My parents will not pitch in for my schooling which sadly makes the 4-year degrees intangible for me, especially when factoring in my age. So, I am looking at some programs at BCIT which is fairly well respected in my area.
Here are my options:

Im accepting that I probably wont get into Paramedic on the first try but I have been accepted for PreHealth.
My questions are:
how difficult is the program for someone with good work ethic?
Is this diploma recognized for competetive program applications for more than 1 year after completion? (I heard a rumor it only matters for applications to programs in the semester immediatly following graduation)
I previously did well in Elec. Eng. Technology at Fanshawe so heavy workload and 40h/wk of class would not be an issue, and i am confident u would breeeze right thru the math. Bio/chem would be challenging im sure as I only have my grade 11 for each.

eu não quero nenhum link, seria pedir demais, só quero ver se é possível aprender sozinho e que caminho vocês tomaram... also, eu não quero dizer que trabalharei sem diploma pra sempre, eu posso fazer uma faculdade ainda, talvez um tecnológo ano que vem, eu só quero saber se é possível aprender sozinho e ser empregado sem problemas.
Another win for ICON. According to this news article released today: Later this month, prestigious South Korean university POSTECH will be issuing their diplomas via broof - ICON network's certificate issuance system. Due to coronavirus they, like most schools, have no choice but to postpone this year's graduation ceremony(originally planned to take place mid-February). But they are using ICON blockchain to provide an efficient and convenient solution for their students. The graduating class of 828 students will be able to receive their diplomas on time, online via email using broof. Until they can hold the ceremony safely in person later in July.
This is what a real blockchain-based solution and real world use case looks like. ICON network's partnerships are no longer just cont... keep reading on reddit ➡

So I have just finished Khan academy's Stats course (curriculum here -> https://www.khanacademy.org/math/statistics-probability)
And I was wondering if this would be enough for preperation for a 1 year Data analytics course, it's a diploma to equivelent to 3rd/4th year of a Bachelor Degree.
I've had no other real study in Stats/Probability since High school (~10 years ago ) but found the course fine and I'm quite comfortable with all the concepts covered. But I just am not sure as to how in depth they are in the broader context of Statistics. Im also unsure as to the prior knowledge the university may expect of me for a course at this level.
Any insight would be welcome :)
P.S Also any recomendations as to any further study in Statistics/Probability wold be greatly appricieated ! I throughly enjoyed this course and would love to keep going with it!
