As someone who just finished four years of getting her university degree, I'd say that paper is worth quite a lot to myself.

Celebrating Christmas in university was fun, I got to decorate my own place and have friends over. Unfortunately my exams usually weren't done until the 22nd of December, so then I got to go home to my mum's house, which was always nicely decorated. I missed helping her set up, but it was still wonderful to be there. Now that I'm in Europe and they're in Canada...Christmas will be a little harder. C'est la vie, there's always skype that I can have on to participate in the family time.

I put up some lights in my dorm...

I put some small colored lights in my dorm room window and I listened to my John Denver and the Muppets tape that was recorded from my sister's record album. I also made hot chocolate and put peppermint candy canes in it! Yum! Those were nice times I have a daughter in college now and she isn't into Christmas decorating like I am or like my other daughter that is still home with me. So, she won't be decorating her room at school, but we will have the house here decorated around Thanksgiving!

I don't know how much my degree is worth yet since I don't graduate until December...but I'll let you all know next year! In a lot of cases it does pay off...with a lot of my family it did. I think I'm the only one in my immediate family without specific goals. My dad wanted to become a principal, so he went to school, became a teacher, then a counselor, then a principal and sort of collected more degrees along the way until he became a phD. My mom became a teacher too, but left teaching and decided to open up her own daycare. My oldest sister had been saying she wanted to be a doctor since before she could pronounce it properly (she called it "docker"), so she went to college, then med school, then residency and there she is...a real live doctor. Then my middle sister took after our dad and went for the teaching. I dunno what I'm gonna do with my degree yet.

One has to appreciate the work and effort that goes into getting a degree. These days a degree is no guarantee of a good job. I know people with masters degree that work at Wal Mart and factory jobs.
