So I have an issue. I currently work full time, and I love my job. LOVE it. The people I work with are great, my bosses are great, and from the handful of jobs I have had, this is heaven. I don’t dread Mondays, or any weekday for that matter. Yes, I have the occassional “holy crap it was super busy” but never that “ugh I hate my job feeling”.
I also go to school part time for court reporting/stenography. Now I have been in school for 3 years now and I can graduate whenever I get up to typing 225 words per min. I am at 160 right now and I am at a stump. I haven’t progressed. I got married a few weeks ago, so this year I was extremely pre-occupied and not focused on school. I have also been throwing around the idea that I can stay at my current job. BUT my DH wants me to finish school. I also think that my frustration of wanting a baby now is clouding my judgement to finish. I can’t afford to go to school and have a baby. FOr those that don’t know, court reporting is not something that you can just open a book and study, its hands on practice every.day. And I don’t practice every day. I come home from working 9 hours and all I want to do is relax, watch TV, cook dinner with my DH, and relax. I am not motivated to finish. All I can think about is having a baby and I am scared to tell DH I don’t want to finish, I want to stay at my job (which also pays decent) and with both of our incomes combined we bring in over $100K.
I don’t know what to do. A part of me is saying finish because you are almost there, you have come so far and another part of me is saying have a baby, and stay at this job you love so much.
