What Could Have Been
Just read this article about how ATA Airlines filed for bankruptcy.
When I graduated from college, during the boom of the late 1990s, I had a job offer with ATA. I could have gone to Indianapolis to work in their strategic planning division. Exciting stuff.
I made the difficult decision to turn down this job offer to go to law school.
So is my life better now? Well, that's hard to say.
I do make more money, I wear nicer suits, and I do live in NY instead of Indianapolis (that's probably worse, since it's so expensive here and I still don't own my own home).
Then again, why does it matter where I live because I'm being sent OUT OF TOWN for work again!! Arrrggghhh.
