@YogaFaerie:  not so much a career switch for me, but I graduated with my associates in social science almost 3 years ago just so I could graduate. I’ve been working odd jobs here and there to support my self, meanwhile all of my friends and fiancé have graduated with a Bachelors recently and I feel so lame. I don’t have any idea what to do withe my life! I even took a risk and applied for a nursing program and didn’t get in, so I feel like I’m in a wading pool full of question marks. 

I’m considering military or just going ahead and getting my BS in criminal justice like I originally planned. I’m definately not a risk taker and I hate wasting money; getting a student loan is hanging over my head.  

If someone had warned me how hard it would be to find my calling, I would have started figuring this stuff out in 3rd grade haha. 

I know you like being self employed, what about a degree in entrepreneurship? You can start your own business with an office and everything and hire some people to travel to other locations. Just an idea 🙂

Me me me!! I know what you mean.  I work a high stress, low income job.  I really thought that it was my passion, but for the amount of hard work, stress, zero money, and the fact that you do not move “up” into a higher position has really opened my eyes to see otherwise.

I work full time and go to school, as does my husband.  We’re trying to pay for our school without going into debt (so far, a success), but my mind is wandering to what I could become once I get more classes under my belt.  Right now, it just doesn’t make sense to move on, so I’m stuck for the meanwhile. 🙁  Which, quite frankly, is all for the better.  I’m unsure which path I’d like to go down eventually, but I do have a few career paths in mind.  There’s just so many different choices you can make, it’s hard!  I hear ya.

It’ll all work out in the end, promise!

I have been at the same job for 13 Years. I love the actual job, lately I just really want a change. I work in hospice care now, I’m thinking of going to culinary school.
