I have a different perspective. I got an A.A. in computer programming and
was working as a programmer while I got a B.A. in technical communication.
I loved the tech comm classes, and I really enjoyed the tech writing that I
was able to do at work. However, I have made numerous attempts to move to
technical communication careers, but I have been unable to economically
justify moving from the dark side. I must digress and say that
theoretically, we should do what we love over what we make, but sometimes
practicality rules.

P.S. I have been somewhat true to myself by freelancing--maybe I can keep
the best of both worlds! :)
