Well...At Least We Know the Cleveland Browns Are Worse Than Us

After the miracle win last Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, Matt Stafford was looking like the next big thing at QB in the NFL. Oh how things change in just 4 short days.

The annual Thanksgiving Day game started off rather well. Everyone thought that both Stafford and Calvin Johnson would miss the game. So we ere all rather optimistic seeing them take the field. The Lions got a fumble on the opening kick off and took an early 7-0 lead. They were even in it at halftime. least they played a quarter well. Stafford went a head and went back to being an interception machine and the Lions defense spent probably 75% of the game on the field while the Packers strapped on their mounts and rammed it in. least we had that one good week.

Time To Go Back to College

With so little going on in the job markets these days there aren't many options out there other than going back to school and getting another degree. For me it is important that I find a place that can give me an online degree.

Personally, I plan to try and use as much financial aid as I can get, or I just won't be able to go back to school. Without a degree, a long cycle of dead end jobs are out there with little to no security. I plan on getting a degree in computers, but a friend of mine is looking into an online teaching degree from an online university called Western Governors University (WGU).

WGU specializes in teaching degrees, but also provides degrees in business, nursing, and technology. They are one of the first online universities to be approved U.S. Department of Education to offer federal financial aid. WGU is a non-profit and more affordable than other online universities, making the financial aid you might be eligible for stretch quite a bit further.

Western Governors University is nationally accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC). WGU is also regionally accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, one of the major accrediting commissions recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
