Re: "Professional" job without degree

In the USA it is not about degrees it is about what value you bring to a company. Your job is to make people aware of what you can bring to the table that few people can.

Re: UK- Palo Alto: What I've learnt 1 month in

Welcome to the SF Bay area, you could not have picked a more expensive place to live but it is one of the safest, just stay clear of East Palo Alto, which is almost the opposite.

Re: So homesick

Maybe this has already been said but what about using skype or other type of video calls to the UK? watching Youtube videos of the UK, such as travel channels etc. Not perfect but does help.
