I went to a vocational school so when I went to college everyone expected me to go for my trade. I hated it. I took a break from school for a while after that. Now I’m going back and doing something that I love 🙂

I went to cosmetologyy school and hated it.  I changed gears, used it in a different way so it wasn’t a waste.

Now I do see clients, but I don’t mainly do hair.  I do skin, waxing and nails as well as a small group of hair clients.  Mostly I manage my staff and our locations.

I took me awhile to figure out I was bored and hating doing hair and even longer to do something about it.

I went to school for communication studies and now I’m just sick of working 😉

I’m another Travel + Tourism (namely, Hospitality Management) regretted graduate. Didn’t know what I wanted to do, but was tired of switching majors so I picked the one I could get done with sooner. Hoping to get out of hotels one of these days b/c I hate it…

Me.  I have a BA in ‘interpersonal and organizational communication’ or whatever that means.  Basically I signed up for a life in operations which is what I am doing.  HATE IT.  I am so tired of helping other people.  Truly.  I know that sounds awful but I have always had either operational or serving jobs which are both pretty thankless.  My next career move I want to do something that is creative, like catering (yes I realize you help your client eat but I don’t have to practically wipe their ass like I have to in operations) or graphic design or something.  And I want to work on my own projects.  And answer to nobody.

@EleanorRigby:  Me too.

@s.renea9:  Yup. I dearly wanted to learn cooking and baking. Parents convinced me there was no future and I ended going to law school. I hated it so much but stuck it through. Job was horrible, I just couldn’t get into the groove of it and finally I gave it up 4 years ago and became a flight attendant (childhood dreams). Now I’m going back to school for patisserie.

I feel guilty for all the money spent to study to be a lawyer… But I would feel worse if I spent all my life hating my job.
