I have decided to go back to school...actually I have already been accepted by DeVry and start this Monday. With a family now I want to make sure I can move out of this area and to a much nicer school district by the time Magnus is ready to start school.

I also have a new job lined up this fall, doesn't pay that great but the hours work and I find it to be very rewarding work so it will fit the bill for now.

I mention all this because I may not be very active for the next couple of years. I have no idea how much time school will take up but I have to assume it will cut into my Bench time most semesters.

Now I will never finish that web site project of mine I suppose:p

Congrats, Matt! That is a big step. And as long as work allows you to spend time with your family and you're happy, pay matters little.

Also, if you ever need help with your website, I would like to pick up a little project.

Thank you:) I wish you could help with the site but I'm down to filling in the content which is scanning the collection or filling in cards for the trade list.

Come make a road trip and I'll put you to work though:D

First off......congrats on going back to school! Now, for the quote above.........I think school will actually help your chances of finishing the site.:) Outside of spending time with the family, you have to have something else to play around with in order to maintain your sanity.............


If I can ever help with anything (schoolwise)........shoot me a PM.;)

Buddy I wish you nothing but the best. Magnus is a very lucky boy to have a dad who is looking out for him the way you do. Its so hard to go back to school as we get older ,I did it at 30 and though it was hard at times ,I never regretted it . Heck I wouldnt have what I do now if it wasnt for my schooling. Keep us updated as you can.

Best of luck to you! I will be starting my Junior year this fall (half way to a BBA). Unfortunately I have to basically quit trading from Sept-May due to the busy schedule. Hopefully you manage to enjoy your family, grow your already amazing Choi and Negro League collections, as well as keep a high GPA.
BTW what degree are you looking to complete?

Only taking two classes a semester so I'm hoping it won't be too bad. I'm going for a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering Technology degree.

Congrats bud and good luck with the classes. Magnus is a lucky kid to have a dad doing everything that you are to make his future better.
Even though you won't be around much, we still have that nice pic of you that we'll have to break out from time to time. :D

If there's ever anything that I can do to help you out, just say the word.

Good Luck Bud!

Matt,

I guess I missed this post. Congrats on going back to school. What are you going into?

You will still have time for your collection. You will just have to manage your time and schedule between family, school and hobby. I know you can and will do it.

Pencil June 2011 on your calendar, I will be running the race in Batavia again.

Later,

Jeff

Matt,

I wish you the best in the new chapter in your life.
MY niece in Villa Park went to DeVry and it helped her find a real good well paying job.
I am sure you will do well in whatever you do.
