i want to go back to college. For the past three years ive been toying with the idea of going back to college. I had a rough start into the adult life after graduating high school so the most i was able to obtain was an AA degree at a community college, i didnt finish it because during the economy crash i knew it would be useless later in life (and i was right, it never recovered, even today) i started working and eventually got into cooking at high end restaurants as a line cook, and decided to pursue that instead.
the past 3 years have been rough, i look all around me and all my close friends are excelling in the corporate world or their selective fields, making good money, owning homes, etc. And here i am burnt out from my field, i dont make great money, and have a sense of almost jealousy of others success.
My husband is very successful and driven, makes AMAZING money. But the huge differences we have in our future career outlooks and salary are so drastic, thats its starting to really bother me.
I love him to peices, but hes not the most supporative of people, i know bringing up the idea of going back to school he would probably laugh and say its not worth it. He can be a brutally realistic person, hes not as, i dont know, he doesnt have big dreams for the future, hes perfectly contempt with living in the same house in the same town for the next 30 years…..
Ultimately i would love to get a business degree, maybe dabble (minor?) a little bit in marketing…
Anyone ever start over at 30??? Would love to hear some realistic career change, or going back to college later in life stories….
