    I hope so too. I was put in a position where either I try to change jobs and not have an increase in pay that really can help, or go after what I want to do - being in management - by getting hammered right now to get my masters, ride out a couple of tough years and really take off later.

    So I pick the second option.

    I often have desires to change career or go back to do some schooling. Issue is I never know what to do in either case. :P
    Well, as your wife will tell you...doing this type of work, if you want to be a true master of your own opportunities, the more qualified you are with both education and experience is the best way.

    I'm not buying phone now, but probably early next year. LG G3 isn't bad but its not so cheap as 17 year old me would like to ;). Only 2 phones I could buy are currently(I'm prepared to pay) are Xperia Z1 for 288 and Nexus 5 for 250. Both on 2 year contract.
    What's the price of the Z1 Compact?

    My wife is in an unusual position under the circumstances. Though she's a trained counsellor she has chosen a path that isn't well represented here in the UK. So it's a bit tough.

    For myself in my current career, aside from management I'm pretty much at the peak.

    Specs wise, there isn't much difference between that and the Z2. The camera, for one, is virtually the same.

    I'm trying to walk the unusual way took, even in social work. That simply means that it is a long and less traveled road ahead too.

    The person attacking Traveler has issues, obviously.... Those were not troll comments at all and they have zero sense of humour. I didn't see any hate at all. Weird people out there. I guess we're all supposed to praise all new devices when they come out?

    I actually like the N5. I may end up skipping this simply because Nexus has never had a good camera and I do t expect this one to be any better. Plus, there isn't much difference between the S800 and the s805.

    I'll have to see it in person before I make any firm decisions about whether it will suit me or not. I'd like them to put a half decent camera on it though. I don't care about high pixels I want quality pictures. No I don't want the M8...

    I see to much of that on the sister sites here for Mobile Nations. That's why I'd rather go to XDA. At least their snotty nosed nature was more about how to really work the underpinnings of the OS as opposed to praising how great blindly the OS is.

    I took the road less traveled as well but there are times I wish I hadn't.

    We will see. Nexus has never had a good camera. I doubt moto will change that but I'd be pleasantly surprised if they did. Nexus has always been a niche device targeted at developers first...

    I've tried the conformity in some things and it just doesn't help. So I'm better off sticking to cutting my own path forward and riding out those frustrations.

    I'm afraid price of the new Nexus will be close to those of S5 and HTC ONE and not so much to the Nexus 5.

    The Nexus devices are usually significantly cheaper than the other flagships. I'll just wait and see what happens. I just want a half decent camera to go with the phone. I can wait for the right one. I'm no hurry. :)

    Not always, in terms of the cheapness of the pricing. I know in some markets they charge flagship type money for the Nexus.

    Waiting may be your best bet.

    I think there might be two models, one priced High and one low. Might not be a bad idea to give OPO a try.

    5s camera is not that bad but I am sure the 920 has spoiled you.
