    Congratulations Bob on your MFA! I believe you will find a way. You are a survivor by nature and have more talent and skill in your little finger not to be a success. Good luck with your quest and again congratulations. You are an inspiration.

    This month (May, 2009) I earned my MFA at age 54. Since both my parents are dead and I have almost no family, I decided to skip the commencement ceremony- but I made it! Congrats?
    My God! I (along with the entire Class of '09) have graduated into the worst economic climate since the Great Depression. Now, over 60K in debt, I am applying like mad to local universities to work in any adjunct faculty position.
    Fat chance! Looks like all of us will be lucky to get a job flipping hamburgers at McDonalds or collecting shopping carts at Wal-mart. I don't mind. I've done that kind of work before- but I didn't need a Masters Degree for it. Now we can compete for work with the high school drop-outs and illegal aliens.
    The sad part is: for every hour I work at some place like Wal-mart, I won't be painting. Think of all the quality paintings that will NOT be created by a skilled, trained painter like me while I work behind a cash register for $8.50 per hour.
