I have a good paying full time job. I don't hate it...but I show up frustrated and leave the same way, if not worse. It's not something I want to be doing now, let alone the rest of my life...not even in the general field of work.
I got my bachelor's in psychology two years ago, took 12 hours towards a Master's degree in counseling then fizzed out. Since then I re-located with this company but I know I need a change. This position is a technical/chemistry/mechanical type and I am (obviously through the degree I have) more of a creative being, which there isn't room for in my current industry.
The idea of going back to school for my master's degree has been on my mind, along with a career change in general, for over the last two weeks. I have student loans to pay off for my bachelor's...the thought of adding to that to gain my master's makes me groan with naseua. It's just me...so I need my full time paycheck.
The benefits, the good money, the freedom/comfort of knowing my job...these thoughts weigh on me.
Anybody gone back to school at 41 or later?
