zoey830 :  I went back to school at 25, for nursing. I have ADD and mild Dyslexia, also GAD all of them undiagnosed and untreated at that time. I co.e from a very broke family with toxic dynamics to boot. College was brutally hard. I made it out alive somehow. Passed the boards on first try, somehow. Im am RPN now in Ontario, doing ok considering all of the above. 

Looking back now, had my ADD, DYX and GAD been diagnosed before I started this journey.. I would have chosen a different profession, I know I woupd have done much better in it. 

I have office admin background before nursing… but I got bored, and wanted something more challenging.. not this challenging though.

zoey830 :  My degree is in Communication Disorders & Sciences/ Speech Pathology. While it was a lot of hard work, I wouldn’t say the work was particularly “difficult,” there was just a lot of it. But what I was learning made sense and was easily connectable to other fields like psychology and education which made it easier to learn. I’m in grad school right now and I’m not sure if I want to work in a hospital or not yet but it’s an option!

I have two degrees, one is Biology and one in nursing. They were both difficult, but I make good money as a nurse. You get what you work for, nothing comes easy.

I have a degree in Journalism – Print/Editorial sequence from a Big 10 University. I did not find it challenging at the time I attended, and now wish I had challenged myself more. I am now in the process of getting another degree, which honestly is not terribly challenging, either. However, I am employed in a field I intend to stay in, and the degree I am currently pursuing will improve my pay. When I am done, I intend to continue to take classes, as evolutionary biology has always been a passion of mine. If I held a degree in that area it is highly likely I would not pursue a job in the field, but it would be education just for me and my own improvement/enjoyment.
