Interesting answers here already. I would have a tough choice between journalism or graphic arts, but as my hands are shot, not suited to either one. Don't think they would accept a typing speed of twenty letters a minute lol.

I'VE always wanted to learn more about the lives of the Saints. Can't imagine what I'd do with that, write children's book, perhaps. As to where, Notre Dame, of course!

I didn't know what I wanted to be until I was 40 and had been working in my current job for 10 years already. I mean, I absolutely should have known what I want to me but the guidance counsellors at our school were totally useless. They didn't say to me, what do you love to do more than anything? To which I would have replied "Reading!" and then they could have pointed me towards taking a degree as Librarian Technician (official title) because I would have been a totally awesome Librarian!
If you had the opportunity to go back to college, where would you go and what would you study??
I'm not sure where I'd prefer to go... preferably someplace I could get a scholarship, but I think I'd like to become a dietician or kenithiologist (sp?). Someone who uses the knowledge of foods/activity to help others. Maybe a physical/occupational therapist.
See how decisive I am? LOL

well, since we are fantasizing, I"ll throw into the wish soup, the condition of once again having healthy hands....I would go to one of the big well known art schools in NYC or possibly Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and I would learn some of the ways that computers have expanded and effected our abilities to design and produce art. I graduated in 1985...before the invention of the PC, so my education rapidly was outdated with that invention. I would like to fill in that gap.
If my hands were not able to become magically healthy I would like to study to become a Master Herbalist
Okay, so I am sort of the wrong person to answer this question since I just graduated last year (finally!) with a BS in Technical Communication.
I eventually want to go back and take some computer science classes, as well as continuing my dabbling in psychology, a smidge of middle eastern and Russian history, then continuing my rock-licking tendency in geology. Yup, rather eclectic.
