Hey, I'm still considering these options you mentioned. I'm already 38 and I'm not sure about tying up four more years of the state and then maybe not being marketable and never being any closer to Bible college. I want to go to a particular school but am willing to settle for another one, but I had hoped I could have paid my way to go to a school in Oklahoma that I've always wanted to go to but never made enough money to save up. I'm not totally dismissing the ideas you've pointed out, though. Thanks for taking time to suggest this to me. Have a blessed day. ----- Original Message ----- From: Mary Kozy To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Friday, November 20, 2009 5:10 PM Subject: Re: another jaws and job question Hey Jamie, If you live in a college town, have you considered going to that college? You could start by taking some courses, get all the requirements out of the way and maybe get some kind of job. Then you could look around for missionary work or peace corps or some church opportunities. Colleges (even secular ones) often have opportunities come their way.

I do live in a college town so if I found what degree to get, we might have something there. The new rehab counselor does seem nice. Have a blessed day. ----- Original Message ----- From: Mary Kozy To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Friday, November 20, 2009 7:09 AM Subject: Re: another jaws and job question Jamie, I am glad you are working with a rehab counselor. Can't that person help you if you want to go to college? Often rehab will help pay for college. Another resource for you is Dialogue with the Blind Magazine. There is a lot of career information in this magazine. http://www.blindskills.org Mary At 10:03 AM 11/19/2009, you wrote: Hi, Mary, my new rehab counselor sent me the afb website. Thanks for recommending it too as it seems very interesting at first check.

What other away from home jobs are being done with jaws today? I know teachers and social workers and programmers and transcriptionists and legal workers, but what else? Thanks and have a blessed day.
