    @simplyfelicity: @mfa_lady: yup I have an MFA in Creative Writing and a BS in Public Relations and Journalism. I have been a publicist and grant writer and now I work as a writer for a city agency. I mainly write a monthly newspaper for all of our residents that has about the same circulation as the Boston Globe.

    BS in electrical engineering, MS in industrial engineering. I work in quality control. So kinda. There's no major for quality engineering so it isn't like I could've gone to school for that.

    Astrophysics. I didn't finish. Which isn't even remotely shocking since honestly that's a bit over my head. I wound up a nanny and now SAHM. Kind of wish I had some sort of child development education, but it's fine.

    Love how many engineers there are here - if I went back to school, I think it would be for an engineering-related discipline!

    As it is, I majored in anthropology and my career is in HR - not exactly the type of people studying that I intended, but it's definitely helpful!
